The 13th Annual Awards Show to Take Place in Las Vegas on Thursday, Feb. 8

In a thrilling announcement, the NFL proudly reveals that the charismatic and multi-talented Keegan-Michael Key will return as the host for the prestigious NFL Honors presented by Invisalign, an Align Technology brand. The 13th annual awards ceremony is scheduled to unfold at the Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas on Thursday, Feb. 8.


Known for his Emmy® and Peabody Award-winning performances, Key boasts an exceptional skill set, showcasing versatility in both comedy and drama across film, television, and theater. Currently starring in Warner Bros.' "Wonka" alongside Timothée Chalamet, Key continues to capture audiences with his diverse projects, including the upcoming animated feature "Migration" by Illumination. Recently at the helm of Apple TV+'s "Schmigadoon" and Hulu's "Reboot," Key's creative prowess extends to the literary realm with his bestselling book, "The History of Sketch Comedy," earning accolades as one of Barnes and Noble's Best Books of 2023.

This marks Key's third stint as the host of NFL Honors, following his engaging performances in 2021 (Los Angeles) and 2017 (Houston). He joins an illustrious list of hosts, including Kelly Clarkson, Steve Harvey, Alec Baldwin, Seth Meyers, Rob Riggle, and Conan O'Brien, adding his unique flair to this star-studded event.


NFL Honors, introduced in 2012, serves as a platform to unveil prestigious awards such as The Associated Press' Most Valuable Player, the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, and the announcement of the newest Pro Football Hall of Fame Class, among others. The awards ceremony is a precursor to the Super Bowl, capturing the excitement and anticipation leading up to the big game.


The awards presented at NFL Honors presented by Invisalign cover an array of categories, celebrating outstanding achievements in the NFL, including coaching excellence, comeback performances, and remarkable contributions on and off the field. Additionally, the ceremony introduces new categories like the Next Gen Stats Moment of the Year powered by AWS and the NFL Fan of the Year presented by Captain Morgan.


In a fresh addition for 2023, the NFL Honors Green Room will be presented by Uber Eats, enhancing the overall experience for attendees and viewers alike.

On Thursday, Feb. 8, the NFL Honors Red Carpet Show presented by Invisalign will air at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network, providing a glamorous prelude to the main event. The ceremony itself will broadcast live at 9 p.m. ET on the CBS Television Network and NFL Network, with streaming options available on Paramount+ and NFL+.
