Yvonne Orji, a Nigerian-American actress, has been announced as the host of the 49th International Emmy Awards.
The Emmy-nominated actress and comedian will present alongside Vanessa Williams, Aidan Quinn, Tony-nominated actor Brian d’Arcy James, Method Man, Piper Perabo, Emeraude Toubia, Wilson Cruz, Felipe Santana, and Angélica at the award ceremony on November 22, 2021, which honors worldwide excellence in television programming.
Orji’s current role comes as the final season of HBO’s successful show ‘Insecure,’ in which she co-stars with Issa Rae as Molly Carter.
