The show pulled an Oscars... in a bad way

If you were to rank the most awkward moments in the history of awards shows, the Oscars messing up Moonlight's Best Picture win is probably top. And the 2020 Emmys just mimicked it.

Audiences have come to recognize — and perhaps dread — these longstanding traits, which might explain why ratings have plummetedin recent years. However, on Sunday night, we were given the 2020 Emmy Awards, an evening that not only celebrated the TV series that got us through this wretched year, but also championed diversity, inclusivity and originality.

There were some tech problems

It was absolutely inevitable, but a lot of celebrities had tech problems during their "red carpet" interviews, which meant people like Regina King and Rachel Brosnahan experienced the same kind of lag you do when you're on a work call.

The audience footage used during Jimmy Kimmel's opening monologue was... interesting

For Jimmy's opening monologue, ABC used audience footage from a previous Emmys ceremony to include after each of his jokes. It was a little awkward and also might have been confusing for people who didn't know the Emmys would be entirely virtual.

There was a serious lack of laughs

Another inevitability, but Jimmy cracking jokes in an empty Staples Centre to absolutely no laughs was highly awkward, alongside the fake audience reactions.

Jennifer Aniston set stuff on fire

Another bit that was a little awkward was when Jimmy and Jennifer Aniston (who was at the Staples Centre) took the first Emmy winner envelope and lit it on fire to get rid of the germs. But awkwardly, the fire wouldn't actually extinguish when Aniston tried to put it out with the fire extinguisher.

Jimmy Kimmel made an inappropriate ICE joke

After John Oliver won his award for Outstanding Variety Show, Kimmel made a joke about how he was going to call ICE on him. Considering people are being deported from this country against their will every day, that is really not funny.

Emmys again draws its smallest audience ever .
If you thought the highly unusual nature of this year's Emmys might result in a bit of a ratings boost, think again.
