11 Times Andy Samberg Was Bae At The Emmys

Samberg for President, or like, at least Emmy host next year.

Last night affirmed two important factoids about Andy Samberg. For one, he’s a terrific host. Equal parts affable and charming, Samberg anchored what could have been another excuse to hate awards season and made it undeniably entertaining.

And for two, and perhaps more important, last night affirmed that Andy Samberg, the 37-year-old “not particularly religious” Saturday Night Live alum, is bae.

In fact, damn bae.

Here’s 11 facts to prove the obvious.


  1. He was a total bae up on this billboard.

  2. He started the night off super bae, working the red carpet in Prada with his wife, Joanna Newsom.

  3. Things got bae-er when he made his first suit change of the night, switching to Zegna.

  5. He even managed to out-bae Seth Meyers (which is really hard, because Meyers is très bae)

  6. A bae that can make you laugh–we should all be so lucky.

  7. A bae that can make you laugh and carry a tune–the bae-est of them all, TBH.

  8. Things seemed like they had reached pique bae when Samberg switched into his first phthalo blue David Hart suit.

  9. But then he switched into his second David Hart suit (this one baby blue) and the bae meter was in sudden need of recalibration.

  10. The addition of the sneakers and glasses, the bae-est of them all.

  11. Ensuring his bae domination: a Kim Davis joke during his opening monologue.

    “If I wanted to see an intolerant woman dance, I would’ve gone to one of four of Kim Davis’ weddings. It’s amazing that Kim Davis came out of jail to Eye of the Tiger, considering how many guys have boned each other to that song.”
