No Emmys would be total without an after-party. And, in 2020, that indicates a Zoom after-party.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the yearly event unfolded for the very first time essentially while Jimmy Kimmel guided the program as host from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. After the last award of the night was given out from another location to Succession for Outstanding Drama Series, the late-show host concluded the occasion by welcoming anybody seeing to a virtual after-party.
“Congratulations to all the winners tonight, to all the nominees and I’ll see you all at the sad Zoom after-party,” he informed audiences. “Meeting ID 4599567155. Stay safe. Please vote and baba booey.”
While it would not have actually run out the concern for Kimmel to simply be making one last joke to end the night, as lots of captivated fans quickly found out, he wasn’t joking about the Zoom celebrations. Though, after going into the ID Kimmel shared, some discovered another window requesting a password.
As one fan explained after trying, “I tried logging into the emmys zoom after party and it had a passcode dammit.”
