Renowned and celebrated television personality and host Jimmy Kimmel says that he is not at all "excited" about the forthcoming prestigious Emmy Awards this year.

Kimmel, who also hosts the famous talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! says, he is not much elated to host the upcoming 68th Emmys as there are a lot more dynamics involved and is more difficult than a 20 minutes talk show. He also mentioned that it is a huge opportunity, though.

"I wouldn't say I am excited about that or anything. Wrangling everybody is very difficult, it's difficult because you really only have three or four minutes to do your monologue."

"You really have to make sure your material is strong whereas when you are going on and doing 20 minutes at night, you have peaks and valleys," Kimmel said.

"Here, everything has to be precise, that's kind of a pain. You have to have a lot of backup options and sometimes it winds up completely different from the way it started," he added.

The 'Primetime Emmy Award' is an American award show presented by the 'Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' in recognition of the best performances in the television programming. The '68th Primetime Emmy Awards' will be telecasted live on 18th September 2016.
