Tonight's Emmy Awards Will Be Handed Out By Someone In Tuxedo Hazmat Suits

Tonight's Emmy Awards Will Be Handed Out By Someone In Tuxedo Hazmat Suits

This year's Emmy Awards are going ahead but, thanks to the pandemic things are going to look a lot different than the usual glitzy affair.

The virtual ceremony will see a hazmat-suited presenter giving out the gongs tonight - truly as 2020 as anything could get.

The TV Academy came up with the solution and enlisted the help of costume designer Katja Cahill and executive producer Guy Carrington to come up with the look.

The pair worked with a hazmat manufacturer so that they could 'ensure the health and safety of all of our winners and the presenter by following all of the health and safety protocols - with a twist'.

As reported by Variety, a letter sent said: "We're going to make you look fabulous - we're exploring the cutting edge of technology to allow us to use good cameras and lighting and look forward to working with you to produce your unique 'on screen' moments.

"If you want to be in formal wear, we'd love that, but equally if you're in the UK and it's 3am, perhaps you want to be in designer pajamas and record from your bed! We want to work with you to style your moments, but want you to guide us on your levels of comfort - where you want to be, who you want to be with, what you want to wear etc."

The Covid-19 pandemic has meant that planning the Emmys has looked totally different this year than usual.

Instead of the usual pre-taped acceptance speeches, the team at the Emmys have shipped out a whole package to every single nominee. Spread across 20 cities and 10 countries, the celebs have received a ring light, a laptop, a boom mic and a camera so that they're prepared for the show.

Producer Ian Stewart said that the complicated process is like 'trying to watch 130 sports matches at the same time'.

Speaking to reporters during a virtual round table on Wednesday, Stewart said: "It is sort of a logistic nightmare. It's gonna be great. How could it possibly go wrong?"

The Emmy Awards will be hosted by chat-show presenter Jimmy Kimmel for the third time. It will be aired on television on Sunday at 8pm Eastern Time. You can catch it on ABC.
