Announcing the Primetime Emmy Nominations is a serious job. It requires early morning alertness,  the ability to remain emotionless while reading the teleprompter, and in the case of upcoming announcer Melissa McCarthy (“Mike & Molly,” “Bridesmaids“), it necessitates training by Joel McHale. Watch Nominations aficionado McHale put McCarthy through a series of grueling tasks – including car waxing, chicken chasing, and underwear folding.

The Primetime Emmy Nominations will be announced live this Thursday, July 14 at 8:30 am ET/5:30 am PT.
