Emmys Awkward Moments


The year’s Emmys were definitely one for the books — but not without a few awkward moments. Here are some of the best:


Before the show, Maddy Morphosis caused a little stir with this tweet:

Variety / NBC / E!

Maddy soon after clarified with a tweet that read, “Y’all need to calm down. I’m talking about the bottom 13. Ru, Michelle and Willow are real celebs.”


Kenan introduced Oprah as the “Queen of All Thrones” — the same week Queen Elizabeth II died:


Kenan made a risqué joke about Zendaya and Leonardo DiCaprio:

This was Zendaya’s reaction:


Later in the show, Kenan’s joke about Regina Hall got crickets — and acknowledged it — after telling this joke:

This #Emmys2022 is ROUGH! The opening was…weird. The transitions are abrupt & make no sense from trailers & nominees to presenters. This Emmys show isn’t going to, um, win any Emmys.

Lizzo read a random line off the teleprompter about someone being a “big girl” when presenting:


Jennifer Coolidge said this when winning her first Emmy:


And then the Emmys had the nerve to play her off the stage with barely any time to thank people!!! Luckily, she handled it like a champ:

Jennifer Coolidge deciding to dance when the #Emmys attempted to play her off is a truly perfect moment

People criticized the fact that the In Memoriam segment seemed to focus more on John Legend’s vocal performance over those who had died:

I miss when @TheEmmys @TelevisionAcad ran their #inmemoriam as a focus on the people that were lost, rather than artistically shooting a live musical performance. Not against Mr Legend, just think the In Memoriam people deserved to be featured. Couldn’t see half the people/names.

I’d rather see the reel of the people we lost instead of shots of the audience, the candles on the table, or John Legend singing and playing the piano during the In Memoriam. The focus should be on those we lost not the room. Is that so hard to do. #Emmys

Presenter Jimmy Kimmel — while still doing a bit about being drunk because he lost — laid on the ground while Quinta Brunson accepted her history-making Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series:
