    SNL’s Kenan to host Emmy Awards

    LOS ANGELES (AP) – Veteran Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast member Kenan Thompson will host next month’s Emmy Awards.

    “Being a part of this incredible evening where we honour the best of the television community is ridiculously exciting, and to do it on NBC – my longtime network family – makes it even more special,” Thompson said.

    Thompson has been with NBC’s late-night sketch show since 2003 and returns for his 20th season this fall. His work on “SNL” has earned him a trio of Emmy supporting acting nominations, and he won a trophy in 2018 as lyrics co-writer of the song Come Back, Barack, which was featured on the show.

    He earned a lead acting nomination last year for his sitcom Kenan, which NBC cancelled in May after two seasons.

    Thompson was an original cast member of Nickelodeon’s children’s sketch comedy series All That and starred with Kel Mitchell on the spinoff Kenan and Kel. His film credits include Clifford the Big Red Dog and Barbershop 2: Back in Business.

    The September 12 Emmy ceremony will air live on NBC and be carried on its streaming sibling Peacock.
