Jimmy Kimmel to host the Emmy Awards

This year's Emmy Awards will be hosted by ABC's own Jimmy Kimmel, the late-night comedian announced Monday.

Kimmel will take the stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 18.

"I have a feeling I'm going to be great," said the Jimmy Kimmel Live host, who also hosted the Emmys in 2012.

The award show will announce its nominees on July 14.

Kimmel is no stranger to awards shows. He's fresh off of hosting his 11th annual Jimmy Kimmel Live!: After The Oscars special last week.

Watch the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards Sept. 18 on ABC.
