Four female duos to present at Emmy Awards

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 13, 2013, in Beverly Hills, Calif. AP

When the Emmys broadcast live this month on CBS, viewers can expect to see four female presenting-duos to take the stage: Kerry Washington with Diahann Carroll; Tina Fey with Amy Poehler; Zooey Deschanel alongside Emily Deschanel; and CBS' "MOM" co-stars Allison Janney alongside Anna Faris.

Washington, who is nominated for her role in ABC's "Scandal," is the first black woman since 1995 to be nominated in the category of outstanding lead actress in a drama series. She'll present alongside four-time Emmy Award nominee Diahann Carroll, who stars in "White Collar" on USA.

We'll get another funny dose of Golden Globe co-hosts Fey and Poehler, who are nominated for a combined 11 Emmy Awards.

The eight women join previously announced presenters Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, co-stars of HBO's "Behind the Candelabra."

The 65th Primetime Emmys, to be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will broadcast live from Nokia Theater L.A. in Los Angeles on Sept. 22 starting at 8 p.m. ET.
