How Stephen Colbert Could Make Emmy History

28


The nominations are in, and Emmys host Stephen Colbert is in for a wild ride come September. Why, you ask? Well, in addition to an absolutely stacked dramatic-actress-in-a-limited-series category, there’s a more personal possibility facing the comedian: thanks to his multiple nominations for The Late Show, Colbert could become the first performer in TV Academy history to win multiple awards while also hosting the annual Emmy Award ceremony.

Colbert earned six Emmy nominations this year: Late Show is up for direction and writing for a variety series, as well as variety series overall, and Colbert’s election-night special, which aired on Showtime, earned nods in the same categories for variety special.

The list of Emmys hosts who have taken home statuettes while emceeing the ceremony itself is a relatively small club: in 68 years, the only TV personalities who have managed the task are Raymond Burr, Bill Cosby (twice), Mary Tyler Moore, Tom Selleck, David Letterman, Bruce Willis, Candice Bergen, Jeff Probst, Jimmy Fallon, and Neil Patrick Harris. None of these winners, however, ever managed to take home more than one award on the night they hosted. (Although some had earned multiple nominations.)

Colbert already has nine Emmys under his belt, but he has never hosted the big night before. Perhaps more importantly, the comedian has plenty of experience taking home multiple Emmy Awards in one night: he did so two years in a row—in 2013 and 2014—when The Colbert Report took home gold statuettes in the variety-series and writing-for-a-variety-series categories. Could he do it again with his new broadcast show come September?

Late Show might have taken a few months to find its footing, but since the election Colbert has become the golden boy of late night, supplanting what had once been an impenetrable ratings reign by Fallon’s Tonight Show. So far, Fallon has brought home only one Emmy as host of The Tonight Show— for creative achievement in interactive media-social TV experience, not exactly one of the ceremony’s biggest marquee awards. As Colbert continues to solidify his seat atop the late-night throne, snagging a couple trophies for himself and his staff certainly wouldn’t hurt—especially when he’ll also have the rest of the ceremony to crow about the victory from his hosting podium.
