Host Cedric the Entertainer famous that given COVID-19, there may need been an impression getting into that this occasion could be “Emmys Lite.” As an alternative it seems they invited each celeb who’s ever been on TV to convene in an “out of doors” ballroom.
It didn’t take lengthy earlier than one presenter spoke up about how unusual the packed gathering appears, given the rising toll of the Delta variant. “Good to be right here on the Emmy Awards,” Seth Rogen mentioned as he offered the primary award of the night time, supporting actress in a comedy sequence. “Let me begin by saying: there’s means too many people on this little room.”
“What are we doing?” Rogen continued, his voice climbing to an more and more excessive pitch. “They mentioned this was open air—it’s not! They lied to us.”
“We’re in a hermetically-sealed tent proper now,” Rogen mentioned. “I might not have come to this. Why is there a roof? It’s extra necessary that now we have three chandeliers than that we make sure that we don’t kill Eugene Levy tonight. That’s what has been determined.”
“That is insane,” Rogen concluded. “I went from wiping my groceries to having Paul Bettany sneeze in my face—so, that’s an enormous week! If anybody’s gonna sneeze in my face, Paul, I would like it to be you.”
It was laborious to discern whether or not Rogen’s riff—which he ended by saying, “That’s all of the jokes I wrote”—was purely comedic or partially fueled by honest nervousness. Given how packed the home was, nevertheless, one might perceive if he was feeling slightly nervous.
Reggie Watts, the bandleader for James Corden’s Late Late Present and Emmys DJ, later clarified that everybody on the Emmys was vaccinated.
