The MTV EMAs will air Sunday night on MTV, sharing the best of the best in music in Europe. EMAs, European Music Awards, will highlight some of the best music of the year and celebrate the artists that provided us with the best music and memories of the year.

The host is an American woman by the name of Hailee Steinfeld. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve come to the right place.

Born in 1996 in California, Hailee already has an impressive career at the age of 21. She had her breakthrough role back in 2010 in the movie True Git, a movie she auditioned for eight times before convincing the Coen Brothers that she was right for the job. She starred alongside Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Barry Pepper, and Josh Brolin.

That led to more roles, including Juliet in Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, and Ender’s Game from 2013. Hailee also landed a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for her work on The Edge of Seventeen from 2016.

In 2017, she starred in Pitch Perfect 3, a follow up to her role as Emily in Pitch Perfect 2 three years prior. She has wrapped Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse where she’s the voice of Gwen Stacy, and she has wrapped Bumblee. She’s currently in pre-production on a show called Dickinson, where she plays Emily Dickinson.
