Who’s hosting the Emmys awarding ceremony this year? Apparently, the production runners decided not to give away the microphone this year.

Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment, reportedly broke the news at the Television Critics Association summer press.

“The Emmys will not have a host this year. It’s our job to assess how to elevate the program in the year we’re lucky enough to broadcast it,” he told Collider.

Here’s why the production decided to try going without a host this year: the 2019 Emmys wants to give the hosts’ usual screen time for something else.

“And what’s interesting about this year, to me, is how many amazing shows we’re saying goodbye to. You’ve got obviously Game of Thrones and Veep and Big Bang Theory.”

“Game of Thrones” topped the nominations list with 32 bets. The show sets a record for the highest number of nominations that one television series has ever received in a single year. Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Kit Harrington, Gwendoline Christie, Maisie Williams and Lena Headey grabbed nominations in acting categories.

After eight seasons, the HBO fantasy show premiered its controversial final episode on May 19.

The season garnered polarized reviews including a petition for a complete remake of the episode. The petitioners, more than one million of them, apparently did not affect the show’s chances at the Emmys.

“If you have a host and an opening number, that’s 15, 20 minutes you can’t use to salute the shows,” said Collier.

The Emmys honoring the Big Bang Theory will surprise many after the comedy show became one of 2019’s biggest Emmy snubs both in the series and acting categories.

The comedy sitcom aired its final episode on CBS on May 16 after lead actor Jim Parson (Sheldon Cooper) decided that “it was time” and the showrunners didn’t want to continue without a Sheldon Cooper. Just days before, HBO’s political comedy “Veep” also aired its last episode.

“I look at the honor that is broadcasting the Emmys — we’re excited to do it — and our production team… really have had to balance those tradeoffs. We will go host-less this year. I think it will give us more time to honor those shows,” said the Fox CEO.

Even at its last shot at the Emmys, “Game of Thrones” is already in the lead as the series with the highest number of Emmy wins in primetime history.
