Turns Jennifer Aniston is a boss with a fire extinguisher, lucky for Jimmy Kimmel … when their dumps hit the Emmys, inadvertently, turned into a recreation in 2020.
Fire gag went down early in Sunday’s live broadcast of the Emmys from the Staples Center … Jennifer was the night’s first presenter. The fiery joke showed that they first cleaned any coronavirus from the envelope … by spraying it with Lysol and lighting it naturally.
The thing is … the envelope would not stop burning !!! Jimmy and Jen looked shocked and she had to blow up the extinguisher 5 times before the fire finally went out.
Everything played as a metaphor for the massive forest fires that are currently burning in California and Oregon. Hell, you can even extend that metaphor to the whole of 2020 – COVID-19, racism, social injustice, politics, hurricanes, etc …
You get the point … someone turn off this year.
BTW, the cast of “Little Fires Everywhere” might have been a good early sign for them. However, it was not … they lost the Outstanding Limited Series category. 🔥
