Joel McHale

E! Networks

Everyone expects a who's who of prime-time television to appear at the 62nd Emmy Awards, all glittered up and waiting for their chance to pretend to be humble. But long before then, what those big names themselves will really be paying attention to are the pre-show nomination announcements.

Which means that come the wee hours of July 8, the collective ear of small-screen big shots will be hanging on the words of your very own...

Joel McHale! The Soup boss joins actress Sofia Vergara to announce who could potentially be taking home a fabulous statuette suitable for shelving.

Whether The Soup will be on McHale's pillowy lips is anybody's guess, but that shouldn't stop you from tuning in this very Friday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Then phone the Emmy people and vote! That's how it works, right?
