It was a big night for Homeland.
And for men who like to stare at the cleavage of beautiful women.
But what about the emcee of the evening at the 2012 Emmy Awards? How did Jimmy Kimmel fare?
Among the host's best lines:
Jimmy Kimmel is going from late night to primetime. For one night only, at least.
The comedian will host the 2012 Emmy Awards, ABC announced today, joking in a statement he hopes "to do for the Emmys this year what Eddie Murphy did for the Oscars,” referring to Murphy’s extremely short tenure as host of this year’s Academy Awards.
This will be Kimmel's first time hosting the evening, although he has previously emceed the American Music Awards and the ESPY Awards.
In recent years, the Emmy hosts have included Jane Lynch, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris and, in a horribly-failed experiment, a quintet of reality TV stars.
