The Emmys honor excellence in television.

"It has been an extraordinary year in which television brought multigenerational families together in a shared love of their favorite programs," Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma said in a statement Thursday.

"So it seems fitting that these two accomplished performers announce this year's Emmy nominees as we acknowledge and celebrate the exceptional programs and talent that are elevating and redefining television."

The actors will read the names of the nominees aloud, starting at 11:30 a.m. ET on Emmys.com
