Hollywood’s hottest stars gathered for the 2021 Emmys at L.A. Live in Los Angeles on September 19, 2021.
Without a doubt, 2020 is going to be a very different time following the COVID-19 crisis — many actors and actresses had a great time at the awards show Sunday. They were able to do small watch parties and virtual acceptance speeches
Cedric the Entertainer kicked off the show by performing a singalong of Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend.” LL Cool J, Lil Nicky, Rita Wilson, and other well-known celebrities had joined in on the fun before the first award got handed out.
Tonight was the night that TV gathered before the elite to accept their Emmys at Los Angeles Live in Hollywood. Some of Hollywood’s hottest stars celebrated in style on Sunday, September 19th.
Watching TV, you got what I need. Cedric Raymond, 57, sings out as he watches This Is Us’ Mandy Moore and Black-ish’s Tracee Ellis Ross singing and dancing within the crowd. They had people glued to their seats with their impressive vocal performances.
It was Ted Lasso who took the prizes for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series during the early part of the show, but it was Mare of Easttown’s cast members who grabbed everyone’s attention with their emotional reactions.
After winning an Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Emmy, Julianne Nicholson thanked her executive producer, Kate Winslet. Evan Peters, who won Outstanding Supporting Actor of a limited series, also honored his parents in his speech. He even threw down some love for 45-year-old actress Dame Maggie Smith during his acceptance speech.
“I got to thank my mom & dad for getting me out to L.A.,” After Carrie thanked the Academy, she said: “You guys were crazy for doing that, but we’re gonna drink tonight.”
It might seem odd to you, but the series finale left me in tears. It was emotionally satisfying.
After taking the stage to present two awards at the 2020 event in Schitt’s Creek, The Schitt’s Creek cast got a standing ovation.
“Here’s something I wrote earlier,” Dan said looking to his former costars for help.
Amy O’Hara, who played Dan’s TV mom for six seasons, joked about opening the envelope. Eugene, 74, replied with “No, it’s gotta be coming up.”
The writer’s room in his TV show was near-impossible to please, so the brief & one-liner jokes he gave them were laughable at best. The writers showed their frustration when Eugene said that he underhandedly asked them “to lift the dialogue a bit”. They seemed upset at first, but then they amused the crowd with that trophy before the Outstanding Drama Writing Award. The bit they did about it had people clapping loudly.
