The Emmys just made the same mistake as the Oscars and accidentally gave an award to the wrong person.
It all started yesterday when the 2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards were given out during a virtual ceremony. (The announcement is usually separate from the Primetime awards show, which took place tonight on ABC.)
When it came time to announce the winner for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series, things went awry. The announcer read aloud Jason Bateman for The Outsider, but the screen said something entirely different: Ron Cephas Jones for This Is Us.
The Emmys committee didn’t address the mistake until after the next commercial break, displaying the message, “Our apologies, an incorrect winner has been announced. We’re fixing it now.”
