The 72nd Emmy Awards looked a lot different from normal Sunday night, to say the least.

TV’s biggest night, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, featured live streaming feeds from around the world, a modified “red carpet,” presenters ready to strut around in full hazmat suits and an Emmys statuette holding hand sanitiser.

It looks like it’s just a prop, but it’s the perfect symbol for holding an awards show during a global pandemic. Safety first!

Too soon?

Apparently not, because people on Twitter really loved it.

Perhaps the hand sanitizer trophies and hazmat suits are a sign of what’s to come for other awards shows this year.
