Report: Chris Rock and Dwayne Johnson Decline 2022 Emmy Awards Hosting Gig

Jun 17, 2022

The annual ceremony returns to NBC for the first time since 2018 on September 12, when ‘Saturday Night Live’ stars Michael Che and Colin Jost co-hosted.

AceShowbizChris Rock and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were reportedly asked to host the 2022 Emmy Awards. After airing on NBC back in 2018, the annual ceremony returns to NBC for the first time. At the time, “Saturday Night Live” stars Michael Che and Colin Jost co-hosted.

According to Deadline, the stand-up comedian, who was struck by Will Smith while presenting an award at this year’s Oscars, and the wrestler-turned-actor were both offered the job. Both of them, however, are said to have politely declined.

Meanwhile, Sir Mick Jagger and Kanye West are among a whopping 600 entries looking to nab nominations in the seven music categories. Voting has just got underway and nominations will be announced by the Television Academy on July 12.

Rolling Stones legend Mick contributed the track “Strange Game” for Apple TV+’s “Slow Horses“. As for Ye, the “Donda” artist is in the music supervision category for his documentary film “jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy“.

Zendaya Coleman and Labrinth have entered two songs from the most recent series of “Euphoria” for Best Song, and are strong contenders to win again after Labrinth won the Emmy award for Outstanding Music and Lyrics for his song “All for Us” from his score for the HBO teen drama in 2020.

Despite that, being a music icon doesn’t always guarantee a win. The likes of Beyonce Knowles, Cher, H.E.R. and even Bruce Springsteen were shunned last year. Voting ends on June 27.
