As plans for the first-ever virtual Emmys continue to take shape, the Television Academy has announced Nicole Byer as the 2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards host.

Byer, already a nominee for Outstanding Host of a Reality or Competition Program — and the first Black woman ever nominated in the category — will guide viewers through five nights of Creative Arts ceremonies. Byer’s Netflix series “Nailed It!” will be competing for two awards, including Outstanding Competition Program.

As was previously announced, the Creative Arts Emmys will be spread over a week and lead up to the Primetime Emmy Awards. Virtual ceremonies will be held each night from Monday, September 14 through Thursday, September 17, before breaking on Friday ahead of the final Creative Arts event on Saturday and the Primetime Emmy Awards telecast on Sunday, September 20.

All five shows will be produced by Bob Bain Productions and begin at 8 p.m. ET. The Primetime Emmy Awards will air on ABC starting at 8 p.m. ET. Jimmy Kimmel is on board as host.
