Emmys season is upon us!
In addition to the slate of high-caliber nominees, the 68th annual awards are showcasing several dazzling and accomplished presenters this year. Though the first round of presenters was released last week, including fan-favorites like Taraji P. Henson and Aziz Ansari, the second batch was announced earlier today, and we're getting even more excited for the upcoming show.
The ceremony, scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 18, will boast the public speaking skills of many notable TV personalities—including both current and former Emmy nominees and winners. It’s a familiar bunch, featuring the likes of Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox, Scandal veteran Kerry Washington, and Game of Thrones MVP Kit Harington.
The celebrities doing double duty—both accepting nominations and presenting at the 2016 ceremony—are as follows: Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish); Kit Harington (Game of Thrones); Chris Rock (Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, The Oscars); Keri Russell (The Americans); Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent); Kerry Washington (Confirmation).
Good luck to all of primetime's deserving nominees and presenters!
