With no red carpet and no physical audience, the Emmy Awards went completely virtual, with the trophies being delivered to the winner amid the Covid-19 pandemic. However, what about those nominees who don’t win? American comedian Ramy Youssef has shared a video that exactly sums up their feeling.
Earlier this year, Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel had informed that to ensure safety, over 100 drivers would be stationed to deliver socially distanced Emmy statue to the winners, implying that each nominee would have a driver waiting outside just in case they would win. Producers also sent camera kits and microphones to all the nominees, who chose how and where they want to be seen.
After actor Eugene Levy won the Emmy for lead actor in a comedy series, fellow nominee Ramy Youssef tweeted a video along with a caption that read, “When you lose the Emmy.” The video, which has now gone viral on the microblogging website, features a little kid holding the award and waving before leaving.
