Kerry Washington: new co-host for Emmy Nominations


Kerry Washington will have a pinch-hitter at her side when she reads off the Emmy nominations this morning.

The actress was to announce the nominees with Nick Offerman of the TV show "Parks and Recreation." But the Emmy people say Offerman ran into weather related travel problems on the East Coast - and won't be able to make it to Los Angeles.

Jimmy Kimmel will handle the job, instead. Kimmel will also be hosting the Emmys when the winners are announced during a live ceremony in September.
