Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black) and Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance) will announce the nominees for the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards.
The Television Academy announced today that Cat Deeley will join Uzo Aduba to present the nominations for the 67th Emmy Awards. Deeley will step in for John Stamos who was originally announced as a presenter for the nominations but due to a scheduling conflict is no longer available to participate.
Cat Deeley is one of the foremost television presenters both in the United States and the UK. In 2005, she broke into the world of male-dominated television hosts when she began hosting FOX's So You Think You Can Dance, one of America's most popular dance reality shows, which was renewed for a 12th season. Deeley has received four Emmy Nominations for Outstanding Reality Host in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 as well as winning a 2012 Critics' Choice Award for Best Reality Host for her work on the show. She was also nominated in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015 for a Critics' Choice Award as well as three Teen Choice Award nominations for her role as host on the show.
Deeley was most recently seen starring in her first scripted TV series, Deadbeat, a co-production of Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment and Lionsgate. She stars opposite Tyler Labine in this half-hour supernatural comedy for Hulu which began its second season on April 20, 2015. Deeley's other television credits include Disney Channel's Shake It Up, as well as a cameo appearance in HBO's Life's Too Short and TV Land's The Exes. Deeley also recently lent her voice to an episode of The Simpsons.
The 67th Emmy Awards, hosted by Andy Samberg, airs live Sunday, September 20 (8:00 PM ET/5:00 PM PT) on FOX and will originate from the Microsoft Theater (formerly Nokia Theatre) in Los Angeles. Don Mischer will serve as executive producer for the telecast.
