DeGeneres to host Emmys

2005-08-16 12:54
Los Angeles - Comedienne Ellen DeGeneres has been tapped for her third tour of duty as host of the 57th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced.

DeGeneres hosted television's pre-eminent awards ceremony in 2001, when the event was twice delayed in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks and the start of military operations in Afghanistan. She was also part of a team of hosts for the 2002 ceremony.

The 57th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be broadcast live from The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on September 18.

"You know me, any excuse to put on a dress," quipped DeGeneres, who herself earned the Daytime Emmy earlier this year for best talk show host. - Sapa-dpa
