HomeTVAll My ChildrenFunny Gal Kathy Griffin To Host 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Jillian Bowe June 13, 2014 13 Comments The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards may not be televised this year, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be entertaining to watch when comedienne Kathy Griffin hosts. That’s right kids; Griffin is hosting the event, so get ready for a night of wild amusement. In a released statement Kathy Griffin remarked: I am beyond thrilled to be hosting what I’m told is the most important television event of the year. Knowing that over 100 million people from every corner of the planet will be watching, I will try to keep my nerves at bay and deliver a great show. I can only hope that at the end of the evening, critics and fans alike will compare it to the experience they once had watching Neil Armstrong take man’s first step on the moon. My only regret is knowing that this epic evening will distract millions of viewers from enjoying this year’s World Cup. I apologize to FIFA. This certainly won’t be your mother’s award show. The National Academy of Television and Arts and Sciences (NATAS) chairman Malacky G. Wienges stated: We are very excited to have Kathy leading our ceremony this year. She is a beloved figure in the community and we know that she will have audiences laughing the night away as we honor the brightest stars in our industry on a global stage. The 41st Annual Daytime Emmys will livestream at DaytimeEmmys.net June 22 at at 8 PM EST.

Plus it could give the awards more eyeballs and that is always a good thing Cant wait til June 22 Log in to Reply pumpkin June 13, 2014 I will watch now. I keep forgetting that the online viewing reaches around world. She is funny. I think with her, you either like her or hate her. Sounds like she is pumped to do it. Better to have a host that is enthusiastic about the genre. There have been duds in the past. Log in to Reply 1titanman June 13, 2014 @MrRHS your too funny..

I hope she bashes & insults everyone in daytime! Log in to Reply DeniseMaria June 13, 2014 Now I know I will watch for sure. Was waffling on it before as I think GH got screwed. But Kathy will at least make me laugh!! Log in to Reply Cornfed June 17, 2014 I don’t think GH got screwed, for the most part it’s been a MESS the past 6 months. Only saving grace has been a lot of Rick Hearst and Rebecca Herbst as of late! Log in to Reply jw79bull June 13, 2014 she’ll be cussing and making fun of people…can’t wait!!

Hopefully that will help bring more eyeballs for the soaps on the air. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
