Jimmy Kimmel: The Emmys will be fun

Jimmy Kimmel thinks audiences should "expect the unexpected" at this weekend's Emmy Awards.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live! late night talk show host is slated to host the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards this Sunday.

Jimmy has a few tricks up his sleeves to tickle viewers' funny bones.

"Well I will say this: expect the unexpected - because everyone says that, right?" Jimmy joked to ET Online. "I have some things planned that I think are going to be a lot of fun. I have a prank that the audience is going to be involved in that we're going to play on people who are not watching at home, so I think that's going to be really good. [We've got lots of] actors from your favourite shows. I think we're in good shape."

Unfortunately, Jimmy was unable to get Oprah Winfrey to make an appearance.

The comedian attributes this to schedule conflicts.

"She's in South Africa working on her school with her orphans. She really needs to re-prioritise," he quipped.

The Primetime Emmy Awards will air live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday September 23.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
