Early morning surprise for Emmy nominations announcers?
Could the stars of two of this season's hit freshman comedies be early contenders in this year's Emmy race?
Joel McHale of NBC's "Community" and Sofia Vergara of ABC's "Modern Family" on July 8 will announce nominations for the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards. The two performers will join Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Chairman and Chief Executive John Shaffner to announce the nominations for the awards, which will be broadcast live on NBC Aug. 29 from the Nokia Theatre.
Though no one can say for sure whether McHale or Vergara will be singled out for nods, usually one or more of performers who announce the nominations wind up scoring a nomination. McHale and Vergara have both been praised for their work in their respective shows, which have already been renewed for a second season.
