Emmy Nominations Lose a Host – Again

Kate Mara a last minute no-show; Neil Patrick Harris steps in

For the second straight year, one of the stars scheduled to announce the Emmy nominations is a last minute no-show. Kate Mara will not be presenting with Aaron Paul today because her flight had a mechanical problem.

Neil Patrick Harris, the host of this year's Primetime Emmy Awards, will handle the gig in her place.

Last year, Nick Offerman was unavailable to co-host the announcement because of weather-related travel delays, and Jimmy Kimmel filled in for him.

"Apologies for the last second notice, but our Emmy Nominations co-host Kate Mara is unable to join us this morning," the Academy said in a statement. "She is on location in Santa Fe and late last night her flight had a mechanical malfunction and was unable to take off. She sends her sincerest regrets. Please tune-in at 5:40am PT to see who will join Aaron Paul in announcing the nominations for the 65th Emmy Awards."

Maybe next year the hosts should fly out a couple days early?
