Just ahead of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards (Monday, Sept. 17, on NBC, hosted by SNL’s Michael Che and Colin Jost), Parade spotlights milestone moments, timeless trivia, beloved winners and surprising statistics of TV’s biggest night. (Plus, we reveal what Che and Jost love to binge-watch—and binge-eat—and their suggested ending for the Game of Thrones finale.)
Host With the Most. Before Che and Jost, there was Johnny Carson, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris and Ellen DeGeneres. Who has hosted the most?
Oh, Say, Can You See? What famous comedic actress—and four-time Emmy winner herself—forgot her eyeglasses and had to borrow a pair from a helpful audience member to read the nominees when she was presenting an award in 1975?
Who’s the Biggest Loser? Is it former Murder, She Wrote star Angela Lansbury, with nominations dating back to 1983, or Roseanne star John Goodman?
Call the Cops. Want an Emmy nomination? Should you star in a cop show or a legal drama?
Collusion! Who sang a spoofy duet of the Green Acres theme song with actress Megan Mullally of Will & Grace? (We’ll give you this one: None other than pre-President Donald Trump, of The Apprentice fame. )
