Jimmy Kimmel Reveals 'Weirdest' Part of Hosting the Virtual Emmys

Jimmy Kimmel is back in the studio to film his show Jimmy Kimmel Live after a summer vacation and he’s opening up about the Emmys!

The 52-year-old late night host opened up about the “weirdest” part of hosting the virtual Emmy Awards while giving his opening monologue on Monday (September 21).

“The weirdest part of hosting this show was, when it was over, there are usually parties and everyone is carrying their Emmys around. Everyone’s happy, everyone’s celebrating. This year, the show ended and it was like ‘well, I guess I’ll go into my car – and drive home,’” he said. “Doing an awards show, where all the winners are at home, is a strange experience. It was probably the first time in history that someone won an Emmy and then, ten minutes later put a load of laundry in the dryer.”

Jimmy joked about hosting the lowest rated Emmys ceremony ever, but said a big positive of the night was raising $2.8 million for charity.
