(Newser) – Jimmy Fallon will host the Aug. 29 Emmy Awards telecast, which not coincidentally will air on NBC. The announcement is no surprise—predecessor Conan O'Brien did the honors in 2002 and 2006—but the identity of the runners-up for the gig may be, the Los Angeles Times reports. Justin Timberlake and Saturday Night Live star Andy Samberg, who shared an Emmy for "Dick in a Box" in 2008, got a serious look.
