star Ron Cephas Jones and actor Jason Bateman have become the latest victims of an awkward awards show mix-up, as an error was made during the broadcast of the fifth and final night of the 2020 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
This year's Creative Arts Emmys were held virtually across several nights, with the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards taking place virtually tonight (September 2020).
Oops, says Emmy: 'This Is Us' actor gets award after mix-up
LOS ANGELES (AP) — In a virtual Emmys version of the wrong-winner Oscars gaffe, Ron Cephas Jones’ guest actor award for “This Is Us” was announced for another nominee, Jason Bateman. The error occurred during Saturday's online creative arts Emmys, precursor to Sunday's main ceremony and the culmination of a week of events honoring technical and other achievements. Saturday's show on FXX, however, was the only one of the creative arts presentations to be televised, making the error more glaring. In a voice-over announcement, Bateman was declared the winner for his guest appearance on HBO's “The Outsider,” while the screen displayed Jones' name.
But while the winner of the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series award was being announced during the final Creative Arts Emmys broadcast, there was a rather confusing mistake which saw two different actors announced as the winner simultaneously.
As a voiceover announced The Outsider's Jason Bateman's name, a card declaring Ron Cephas Jones as the winner for his work on This Is Us was displayed at the same time.
So who actually won? It has been confirmed that Cephas Jones is the correct recipient, with the awards broadcast correcting the mistake a few minutes after the confusing moment.
reports that a spokesperson for the Emmys issued a statement confirming that an "editing issue" had occurred and that Cephas Jones is definitely the winner, saying: "They announced the correct winner and it was the correct slate, but the voiceover was incorrect".

Bubble hockey champions: Tampa Bay Lightning win Stanley Cup .
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — The joyful yells from the bench could be heard in the empty arena in the final seconds and the roar from players when Commissioner Gary Bettman called for Steven Stamkos to accept the Stanley Cup echoed even louder. The triumph of winning the NHL championship in a bubble was certainly no less sweet for the Tampa Bay Lightning. Brayden Point scored his playoff-best 14th goal and the Lightning beat the Dallas Stars 2-0 in Game 6 on Monday night to finish off the most unusual NHL postseason in history, staged nearly entirely in quarantine because of the pandemic.
