La La Land was named as the wrong Best Picture winner by presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. “Well, if you saw theOscars, you know that I don’t get the winners in advance,” he laughed. “They’re very careful about that, and none of the executive producers know who’s going to win. That would save me a huge amount of work if I knew who was going to win each category, but no one is interested in saving me a huge amount of work. I think you just have to be creative, and I know that sounds generic and the opposite of creative, but I think you have to look at how award shows are typically done and then figure out what the home version of those shows are, and what the home version of those conventions, award show conventions, are,” he says.

Emmy Predictions 2020: Ted Danson’s Been Waiting 30 Years To Win Comedy Series Lead Actor Again, But Eugene Levy May Have Him Beat“For instance, one of the things we see in award shows is two stars who maybe know each other, who maybe don’t, standing in front of the teleprompter trading lines. I mean, that’s going to be particularly ridiculous in front of no one, and so you have a choice. You can either skip that or have fun with the fact that it’s ridiculous, and I always kind of lean towards having fun with the fact that things are ridiculous. I think there are a lot of traditional award show tropes that we can make fun of in this kind of Zoom capacity that we’re doing with this one.”

There will be a limited number of presenters, some coming to the Staples Center where Kimmel will be, some who won’t. It is all being kept very small due to health reasons. He points out the good news is that those people who complain about having to wear high heels for five hours won’t have that complaint this time. Take 

that Billy Porter!Kimmel’s dance with Emmy is actually being preceded by a weeklong marathon he has nothing to do with. There are five, count ’em,five nights of Creative Arts Emmys being handed out beginning nightly tonight on Emmys.com through Thursday, and then on FXX on Saturday. For ABC’s broadcast on Sunday the number of actual awards being aired are 23, down from the usual 27 categories. The big difference between Kimmel’s Emmy show and those others is that winners being announced on Sunday, not actually

knowing if they have won or not, do not have to record an acceptance speech in advance acting as if it were live. That however is what the producers of the Creative Arts ceremonies required from nominees with a deadline of August 21 (the day voting actually started) to turn in their speeches. That is also what the Daytime Emmys did when it aired in June on CBS. It felt canned and was rather deadly to watch. Kimmel says it was never considered for the Primetime Emmy show.

“I was against that idea immediately when it was brought up. I think that’s the wrong way to do this, and that’s not how we’re going to do it. I don’t think anybody wanted to do it, but it was definitely something that we considered,” he said of discussions in the early phase of how to attack this most unusual Emmys.

APAs for hosting, Kimmel is very adamant that these shows need one. He says that is evidenced by the past two hostless Oscar shows. In fact I pointed out he may be the last sole host ever of an Academy Awards show. “They started by getting rid of the host, and now we got rid of the audience,” he laughed. “I think not having a host is a ridiculous idea, and I don’t think it worked, and I think they did a lot of patting themselves on the back afterwards, but the reason that the ratings for the show were stronger is because the show was shorter.

[Editor’s note: The 2020 Oscars on February 7 were the lowest-rated in history after a bump up in 2019.]So it had nothing to do with the host, and I suspect that everyone will figure that out, and we will have hosts for a long time, and occasionally somebody will say, ‘Oh, we’re going to do it without a host’, and they’ll pretend that it was a conscious decision, when the reality is that all the people they asked said ‘no.’ So, to me, an award show without a host is like a radio station without a disc jockey. You know, you need that voice, it’s better that way. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but it’s like going to a restaurant without a waiter.”

ABCKimmel is not only host and executive producer of this year’s Emmy show, he is also a multiple nominee. He has received his ninth nomination (no wins) for his nightly talk showJimmy Kimmel Live! and has 15 career nominations overall. This year his show is also up in the Short Form Variety category for his “Quarantine Minilogues”, and Kimmel is once again in the running for Outstanding Variety Special (Live) for the second of his and Norman Lear’s

Live In Front of a Studio Audience: All in the Family and Good Times.He won his first-ever Emmy in that category last year for the first of those specials in which he partnered with Lear on an idea the talk host actually came up with himself. Ironically it beat the Oscars, and is up against them again this year.

Kimmel also took the summer off from Jimmy Kimmel Live! where guest hosts filled in. The night after the Emmys he will not only return to the show but also to the studio. He had been doing the shows from home since March when the lockdown began. “I have three summers off. It was part of my contract negotiation. I was just feeling a little rundown, and like, two and a half years ago, I indicated to ABC that I needed a break, and they came up with this idea. They said, “What if you had the summers off, and we put guest hosts in that spot?” and I said, “Really, you would do that?’ And they said, “yes,” and I said, “Well, all right. Well, then I’ll sign up for another three years,” he said, adding that he has just realized he has to get into the mode of talk show host again.

ABC“It’s funny because, you know, I’ve been thinking so much about the Emmys today…well, actually, last night, I had the thought, ‘Oh, wait a minute, what am I going to do on my show that next night?’ I do have to figure something out, and so I’ve started trying to figure out what I’m going to do, but the news changes so drastically and frequently, I’ve learned that there’s not much point to making a plan.” He said he has had moments when he missed being able to comment on what is happening in the world.

Stop and Admire Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's Unforgettable Date Nights at the Emmys - E! OnlineBefore celebrating the 2020 Emmys , E! News looks back on all the couples who made TV’s biggest night a romantic evening before calling it quits. Doesn’t the fact that he left her for Angelina put all the “unforgettable” date nights into question 🤷🏻‍♀️ He was with and married (still is) to Angelina longer than Jennifer. Angelina got sick of him not Brad of her (like Jennifer) so he’d still be with her. 🤔 Since his marriage to Anniston, he's become the father of 6 kids. Why keep pushing their history as a couple? It's not just you but every celebrity media news source. I think it's hurtful to the kids, as if they aren't important.
