Is this the right time for S.N.L.'s Colin Jost and Michael Che to host the Emmys?

And the Emmy hosting gig is on. , , Michael Che and Colin Jost. Saturday Night Live 's current "Weekend Update" co-moderators were tapped to conduct the annual ceremony this year with SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels on board to host the event for the first time since 1988. The choice is logical: S.N.L. Alumni have hosted the Emmys three times over the past eight years, with Andy Samberg, Seth Meyer's and Jimmy Fallon alternating. And since their colleagues Studio 8H Veterans Amy Poehler and Tina Fey performed at the Golden Globes several times, the Co-anchor "Weekend Update" can definitely enliven an award show. In addition, according to NBC Entertainment's chairman Robert Greenblatt versus Variety, this year's broadcast will be "surprise performances" by S.N.L. included. Actors – that means the event will not rest on Josts and Che's shoulders alone. (That also means that Alec Baldwin apparition seems almost inevitable.)

Yet, the announcement raises a question: Are Che and Jost really the right person for this moment? Greenblatt prophesied Variety that they will conduct "one of the funniest awards ceremonies in a long time", while [1949020] Paul Telegdy, president, alternative and reality group, NBC Entertainment, was jazzed down just like that that Che, Jost and Michael's "make this comedy event of the year a must". However, this fall the Emmys will hold the fourth major award show to host the #MeToo and Time's Up Moves – and the fourth such gala held by men.

No question, Emmy voters love Saturday Night Live: The adored skit show took home nine gold statuettes last year alone Baldwin and Kate McKinnon for Best Supporting Actor and actress in a comedy series. But as women struggle to end exploitation and promote equal opportunities in the entertainment industry, a woman from the S.N.L. The family would have sent a strong message – especially for an awards ceremony that praises the TV industry for supposedly being more advanced than the movie world. McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Cecily Strong, or Aidy Bryant had made excellent Emmys hosts, either together or separately. (This could also have been NBC's last chance to tap one of them, as all four will make their exit from SNL before the network will re-host the Emmys in four years.) Even beyond the halls of Studio 8H, there are many more talented women with TV shows on the current NBC roster, including Debra Brass, Megan Mullally, Kristen Bell, America Ferrera, and Retta. (Bell already has a guest appearance this year, she won the SAG Awards in January.) Were not there any of these women?

Che and Jost have criticized the way they dealt with political material. SNL – and Che also has a history of questioning women who criticize him and dismissing women's concerns about street harassment.

The men who have won prizes show this year in particular Seth Meyer's – who directed the Golden Globes, the first show aired after #MeToo was blown up – has one thoughtful job in handling the elephant made in the room. Che and Jost could do exactly the same thing – but it's still worth criticizing a system that keeps men on the scene when women fight harder than ever to fight marginalization in an industry that often exploits them [19659010] Get the Vanity Fair HWD Newsletter
