Emmys 2020

Anyone watching? Trying a bit too hard but that’s normal. Why are there people on the stage with Jimmy? Also I’m trying to figure out why all the winners seem to be together at a tent party when I thought everyone was supposed to at home. Also I don’t have Netflix so don’t know those shows so I can’t appreciate it.

    I turned it on a little late but binge-watched the entire Schitt’s Creek series in the beginning of Covid so I am happy so far.

    I’m following along on Twitter. Hard to beat Schitt’s (hope it’s OK to write that here).

    7/7 comedy awards for Schitt's. They are in Toronto accepting awards. Daniel and Eugene mutually admire and love each other. I'm in season 5 of the series and absolutely love it.

    I love watching the nominees in their homes. I'm finding most of the awards and reactions completely emotional.

    Like Kimmel but the whole stage thing is totally awkward. And I thought that trash can was a goner.

    I don't understand Kimmel and the presenters being so close to each other on the stage; not sure why there is no distancing. Schitt's Creek cast being all together was nice, although mask came off at times and many hugs.

    I've seen some references to the lack of social distancing this morning. From our view, yes, it seemed that way. But who knows, maybe those on the stage quarantined for 2 weeks and tested frequently this week.

    The Schitt's Creek cast was in Canada where the COVID numbers blow the US right out of the water. Could be that they have earned the right - with pre-testing and possible quarantine to be in that room and at times in close proximity or without a mask.

    We are very sensitive to seeing people in groups now. Painstakingly.

    I only watched until a little before 10pm EST. Any exceptional speeches or surprises I missed?

    I just read that the cast of Schitts Creek gathered in an event space in Canada. “Adhering to Ontario’s COVID-19 guidelines, all of those in attendance have been in isolation since returning negative COVID-19 tests.”

    They all probably had rapid Covid tests before the show.

    @VaBluebird I guess that could be, but I am not trusting a rapid alone. Many can test negative on the rapid and positive on other test. At least the Schitt's Creek cast was masked most of the time, at least on camera, and maybe they have all been very careful for a period of time that allowed them to be together for the evening.

    I had read that the Schitt's Creek cast had been tested, then isolated themselves for some amount of time. I understand they wanted to be together, and hopefully followed the rules, but it really come across as entitled elite. As did the people who posted social media of all of the preparations with hairdressers, make up, costumers, etc. Either you want to illustrate that everyone is in this together and suffering the loss of normal life, or you want to celebrate and show off. Which also means that if you are in a big empty theater, maybe not good optics to keep having people show up on the stage with you.

    It was pointed out by some tv critics - and I agree - that the Emmy's had an opportunity to talk a little more about the situation at hand, the precautions that some people/groups had taken beforehand, etc. - but they didn't.

    Honestly, I'm not going to be as harsh on many of these actors who reportedly DID take precautions to be able to be together - when our screens are now showing multiple sports teams playing contact sports week after week.

    I follow many of the Schitt's Creek cast on social media and it's pretty clear that they embraced both the awards and the prep/precautions to be part of the awards. I think they are sort of under a little more scrutiny because we got to see them have the occasion to hug each other 7 times! I saw some post Emmy interviews with the group as well and they were fully masked except when one of them was talking.
