Four pairs of television's biggest performers have been unveiled as additional presenters for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. These presenters include Emmy nominee Kerry Washington and Emmy Award winner Diahann Carroll; Emmy nominees and leading funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler; Zooey Deschanel and Emily Deschanel; and four-time Emmy winner Allison Janney and Anna Faris.
The Primetime Emmy Awards will be broadcast live across the country from NOKIA Theater L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, Sunday, Sept. 22, at 8 p.m. on the CBS Television Network.
Nominated for her role in the ABC series "Scandal," Washington is the first African-American woman since 1995 to be nominated in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. She will present with groundbreaking iconic actress and four-time Emmy nominee Carroll, who currently appears on the drama "White Collar."
Following their Emmy-nominated performance as hosts of The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Fey and Poehler, who are nominated for a combined 11 Emmys, will join forces again as presenters this year.
Though Zooey and Emily Deschanel share the FOX network for their shows, this will be the first time they share the Emmy stage together as presenters.
Four-time Emmy winner Janney, along with co-star Faris, who both star in the new CBS comedy series "Mom," will also present at the Emmys.
