Jimmy Doesn’t Know How The Primetime Emmy Awards will Take Place
The coronavirus has brought a lot of doubt regarding the happening of the award ceremony. Jimmy is doing his talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live from his home after productions got shut due to the pandemic. The situation is not getting any better, which is creating confusion about whether the award will take place or not. The host himself doesn’t know how or where the award will take place. He said, “I don’t know where we will do this or how we will do this or even why we are doing this, but we are doing it, and I am hosting it.”
What ABC Has To Say For Primetime Emmy Awards
ABC will be premiering the award show. ABC president Karey Burke is confident that Jimmy Kimmel will host the show successful and the people will love him as they always do. She said, “We know Jimmy Kimmel will deliver a uniquely entertaining, funny and moving Primetime Emmys show. He’s a true master of ceremonies who reveres this industry and its people; and just as Jimmy has done with his own show over the past few months, he will tackle this momentous event with heart and humour, and bring some much-needed joy and optimism to our television colleagues and viewers at home.”
What Could Go Wrong For Primetime Emmy Awards
If the coronavirus situation doesn’t get better by September, then the fate of the award will be under the axe. This year’s Daytime Emmy Awards will take place on June 26, 2020, and will be a virtual event with no public attendance. The Primetime Emmy Awards may also happen in the same way if the situation remains the same till September.
