THE Emmy Awards were ripped by presenter Seth Rogen for its “unsafe” Covid protocols.
The star-filled awards show is being filmed in a massive closed tent in Downtown Los Angeles – though it was a requirement attendees got the Covid vaccine.
Meanwhile, host Cedric The Entertainer is being slammed for his “not funny” jokes that are “terrible and not landing with the audience.”
Streaming services are poised for a triumphant night that will cast further shade on the status of broadcast networks, including the big three ABC, CBS and NBC, and once-dominant cable channels such as HBO and Showtime.
This year, about 500 nominees and guests will gather under a glammed-up tent in downtown L.A., with COVID-19 precautions including a vaccine requirement and testing.
There are big names among the presenters, including Angela Bassett, Michael Douglas, Dolly Parton, and Awkwafina, but at least one star, Jennifer Aniston, was candid about staying away because of virus concerns.
