Trevor Noah’s Daily Show nominated for an Emmy

Daily ShowThere’s no doubt about it when we say that The Daily Show with Trevor Noah nearly didn’t make it in the states but like any other South African he was determined to prove them wrong. So wrong that it was announced on Thursday that home-grown comedian bagged a nomination at the Emmy Awards.

Trevor and The Daily Show team have been nominated in the Best Variety Talk Series category.

This is not Trevor’s first taste of the Emmy’s as he won his first award last year in the Best Short Form Variety Series category for his YouTube comedy special, The Daily Show: Between the Scenes.

But this year he’s got some pretty tough competition going up against Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and Britain’s James Corden. He took to social media to share his excitement over the news of the nomination.

“To all the people who voted for us and to all who watch our show I could not be more grateful,” Trevor wrote.

And his fans also took to their timelines to congratulate his achievement:

The Emmy Awards will take place on September 17.

Congrats Trevor!
