Sembra che ci sia sempre un momento controverso in uno spettacolo di premi che fa notizia (ehm, lo schiaffo di Will Smith agli Oscar 2022). Nel caso degli Emmy Awards 2022, Jimmy Kimmel è stato preso di mira per un’acrobazia che ha fatto sul palco. Anche se non comportava schiaffi a un presentatore, implicava sdraiarsi e fingere di essere svenuto. Kimmel ha perso il premio per la migliore serie di discorsi di varietà prima di salire sul palco e presentare un premio per la migliore sceneggiatura per una serie comica. L’ospite a tarda notte si è presentato con il collega comico Will Arnett, ma non era totalmente d’accordo. Arnett ha trascinato il corpo di Kimmel sul palco mentre scherzava sul fatto che la star aveva troppi “margaritas” prima del suo regalo. Una volta che Arnett ha annunciato Quinta Brunson come vincitrice per aver scritto in “Abbott Elementary”, Kimmel è rimasta sdraiata sul palco mentre Brunson ha detto: “Jimmy, svegliati. Ho vinto”. Mentre Kimmel ha continuato a sdraiarsi lì, Brunson ha pronunciato il suo discorso al pubblico mentre accettava il premio.

Fans weigh in on Jimmy Kimmel's apology

The verdict is in... and Jimmy Kimmel has fans divided over his Emmys apology to Quinta Brunson. After the late-night host apologized to the star, fans and foes took to Twitter to weigh in on whether they felt that the apology was genuine or not. Let's start with the naysayers first. "He's not sorry. He could've said sorry privately to QB," one person wrote, insisting Kimmel's apology was a media stunt since he did it on his show. "Literally WORST "apology" that was politely laughed off by Quinta. He basically said ope, I guess I should apologize for that, but it was REALLY Will Arnett's fault. Bruh," another added. One more said, "I like Kimmel, but that skit was rude."

On the flip side, a few others felt like Kimmel's apology was genuine. "Jimmy Kimmel just had Quinta Brunson on his show. Had a beautiful heartfelt apology. Admitted it was dumb. I admire for him," one wrote. "I love Jimmy Kimmel, and despite his comedy bit falling flat, I don't believe that he meant any harm," another fan tweeted, applauding Kimmel for having Brunson on his show. Another social media user said they had "extra respect for making the apology in person instead of posting a hostage video."

According to Page Six, Brunson talked to the press after her win, saying, "Tomorrow maybe I'll be mad at him," before joking she may "punch him in the face," though she wasn't sure.
