Friday, Sept. 14, 2018|12:15 a.m.

LOS ANGELES– Michael Che and Colin Jost, usually stuck behind a desk as “Saturday Night Live” news anchors, are moving to a grander setting Monday as Emmy Awards hosts.

The comics got in the state of mind at Thursday’s rollout of the traditional arrivals carpet– yellow-hued this time around, not red, as the ceremony marks its 70th year.

” This isn’t as gold as I believed it would be. I was anticipating a much tackier gold. However this is a sensible gold,” Che observed.

After carpet duty, he and Jost spoke with The Associated Press about the high-profile job of hosting and what it’s like to be tapped for it by Lorne Michaels, their “SNL” employer and this year’s Emmys telecast manufacturer.

The “Weekend Update” anchors were major, sometimes. Remarks were modified for clearness and brevity.

How does it feel to get this high-profile gig?

Jost: We love going to the Emmys. Anytime we’re chosen, it feels like a big honor. And to go and get asked to host, and they trusted us, it’s great. Am I ideal (to Che)?

Che: Your hair is stunning.

What did Michaels state about the best ways to approach it?

Che: It was something along the lines of, ‘Have fun out there’ and ‘We trust you.’ So that’s amazing when maybe the best manufacturer in TV trusts us with a program. So I think the (TV) academy remains in great hands.

Will you consist of political humor?

Jost: We don’t completely know yet due to the fact that we don’t even understand exactly what’s going to occur over the weekend politically. There might be some, and there may not.

Che: There’s gon na be political jokes. And we’re gon na come out on the wrong side of history, for sure. We’re aiming toward it.

Some awards hosts who have taken a various technique, such as David Letterman and his ‘Oprah-Uma’ bit at the 1995 Oscars, have fallen flat. Will you be more standard hosts?

Jost: I don’t even know actually what a conventional host for it is.

Che: Ed McMahon. Ed McMahon is a standard host.

Jost: Well, should we do that?

Che: If we might be half as great as Ed McMahon, we’ve nailed it. We’re Ed McMahon-ing it.

Provided the Oscars cover mix-up, are you concerned about accidents?

Jost: We have lots of those planned.

Best worst-case circumstance for what could go wrong?

Che: All the winners will be announced through Jack-in-the-box (toy). So we’re just going to need to crank and crank and crank till it pops out. And it will be a puppet of the winner’s face.

Jost: That’s a subtle modification that you’ll observe. And then the program’s going to be 5 hours.

Will the ceremony be extremely “SNL”- ish?

Jost: There will be a great deal of people from the ‘SNL’ family involved. However also a lot of people that are simply the stars of television now that have nothing to do with ‘SNL,’ since individuals wish to see everybody who’s on TV.

Some candidates have stated they hope that politics will not dominate the night. But you 2 tackle severe problems on “Weekend Update,” so is it a tightrope for you?

Che: We’re overthinking it if we’re thinking about that. It’s an event for a lot of individuals who worked really hard this year to be nominated and (for) a great deal of programs that individuals actually take pleasure in. We’re simply gon na have fun at the top and keep the show moving and make certain it’s a satisfying program to view.

Jost: You wish to make it celebratory. You want individuals to be laughing and you want individuals to have an enjoyable time. You’re lucky to be doing this task and you’re lucky to obtain recognized in some way, so why not make it an enjoyable night?
