The Emmys on Sunday basically turned
into the world’s most glamorous Zoom call, with Hollywood A-listers beaming
into an empty Staples Center in Los Angeles from their apartments, guest
houses and various other locations in 10 countries.
Here are some takeaways about how Tinseltown’s top stars suited up for the
coronavirus era’s first major awards show:
Making a statement –
Politics often take center stage at the Emmys, and even without a
traditional red carpet, this year was no different.
Winner Regina King (“Watchmen”) paired a pink power suit with a tee-shirt
bearing the image of Breonna Taylor, an African-American woman killed in a
police shooting in her own home, and the words “Say Her Name.”
Uzo Aduba, who won the Emmy for best supporting actress in a limited series
or television movie for “Mrs America,” wore a simple black tee-shirt with
Taylor’s name in script — and a gold ball skirt.
“Watchmen” creator Damon Lindelof sported a tee-shirt under his jacket that
read “Remember Tulsa ’21” — a reference to a racial massacre in the Oklahoma
city of Tulsa that left up to 300 black people dead in 1921, which figures in
And the final presenter of the night, “This Is Us” star Sterling K Brown,
wore a Black Lives Matter tee-shirt with a clenched fist.

Glamming it up
Of course, the few stars who took the stage with host Jimmy Kimmel had to
dress to impress, and they did not disappoint.
Surprise winner Zendaya (“Euphoria”) wowed in a sculptural black and purple
gown from African-American designer Christopher John Rogers. Jennifer Aniston
donned a black Dior dress — and managed to look glam wielding a fire
extinguisher for an onstage joke.
And nominee Tracee Ellis Ross (“black-ish”) oozed sex appeal in a gold
Alexandre Vauthier gown — cut down to there, and with a high central slit
revealing her legs.
Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington hosted a faux New Year’s Eve party
to honor their limited series “Little Fires Everywhere” — and wish an early
end to a tough 2020. They wore gowns, but one guest wore a vintage Nirvana
Daniel Levy, creator and star of “Schitt’s Creek,” opted for a chic gray
Thom Browne suit with a kilt — that got a lot of air time, given the show’s
multiple wins and the fun socially distanced event the cast and crew held in
His outfit was a nod to the show’s finale, in which his character wore
similar attire for his same-sex wedding.

Pajamas! And animals!
Of course, organizers told participants that informal chic was encouraged,
and many stars took the note, with some wearing glammed up pajamas and others
bringing their canine companions to the party.
Nominee Octavia Spencer (“Self Made”) donned a floral robe and drank wine,
while past winner Alex Borstein lounged on a giant bed in a silky pink and
black nightgown/robe combo.
Borstein’s co-star on “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel,” past winner Rachel
Brosnahan, adopted all the trends, wearing a chic pajama top AND having her
“farty” — her word — dog Winston by her side.
Jane Lynch, also a cast member on “Maisel,” invited her dog Rumi, named for
the Persian poet, to join her on camera.
And actor Randall Park (“Fresh Off the Boat”) was upstaged at the Staples
Center… by an alpaca in a bow tie.
“When you read an email too quickly, the phrase ‘You’re presenting with an
alpaca’ looks a lot like the phrase ‘You’re presenting with Al Pacino’,” Park
The ultimate Covid formal wear
Perhaps the most on-point outfit of the night was the hazmat tuxedo, worn
by those tasked with visiting some of the Emmy winners at their home to
deliver their golden statuettes.
Organizers told Variety that the suit was designed in conjunction with a
hazmat manufacturer, to ensure top protection for the awards couriers.(AFP)
