The 2020 Emmys are the “pandemmys,” as host Jimmy Kimmel called them.
Since it’s the middle of a global pandemic, this year’s ceremony is unusual, as a live audience is impossible…or is it?
Everyone on social media was confused to find the show open on apparently crowded house laughing at Kimmel’s jokes.
“Wait the Emmys got a whole audience ?” asked one confused viewer on Twitter.
“The Emmys…..what the hell is going on,” tweeted another.
Another was duped by the seemingly live audience, tweeting, “THERE ARE ACTUAL PEOPLE AT THE EMMYS WTF”
The camera panned to the mask-less likes of Oprah, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lorne Michaels, Lin Manuel Miranda and more, laughing in the audience as Kimmel delivered his opening. Everyone watching at home was unanimously confused. So, was there a live audience of celebrities apparently not concerned about wearing masks or staying at least six feet away from each other?
No. It was all part of a bit. Kimmel revealed that it’s old footage, and he panned to show the real audience, which includes rows of empty seats and cardboard cutouts of the nominees such as Regina King and Hugh Jackkman. He then showed a room full of the real nominees on Zoom screens from their own homes.
The 72nd annual Emmy awards are airing tonight on ABC.
