Seth Rogen has criticized the Emmys for it’s lack of COVID-19 safety measures while on stage at the event.
The award shows have been taking place in full force over the past week…
And last night’s 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards was no different.
Taking place in downtown Los Angeles, the awards saw some of television’s biggest stars gather together and take to the red carpet.
Among them were Anya Taylor-Joy, who was nominated for eighteen awards, Kate Winslet, who won outstanding lead actress in a limited or anthology series or movie, and Jason Sudeikis, who was named best comedy actor.
But, although the Emmys appeared to be a great night for many of television’s biggest stars…
It seems that one person had a rather big issue with the event.
Appearing on stage, Seth Rogen took the chance to call out the Emmys…
For their lack of COVID-19 safety measures as they placed “too many” people in a “little room.”
And it seems as though others also held the same opinion…
Although some COVID-19 safety procedures were implemented, with the number of guests being limited and attendees being required to show proof of vaccination and a negative test result…
It seems they lacked in other areas, as Rogen pointed out.
Taking to the stage to present the first award of the night for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, Rogen began his speech by saying:
“Good to be here at the Emmy Awards. Let me start by saying, there’s way too many of us in this little room.”
Questioning the safety measures he asked: “What are we doing? They said this was outdoors. It’s not.”
“They lied to us. We’re in a hermetically-sealed tent right now. I would not have come to this.”
“Why is there a roof? It’s more important that we have 3 chandeliers than that we make sure we don’t kill Eugene Levy tonight. That is what has been decided,” he said.
“This is insane. I went from wiping my groceries to Paul Bettany sneezing in my face. So, that’s a big week! If anyone’s gonna sneeze in my face, Paul, I want it to be you.”
As funny as it was, it was also pretty award because he hit the nail on the head.
