The event, which also featured the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Ron Cephas Jones, Michael Urie, and Sharon D. Clarke, celebrated the return of Broadway theatre after over a year of closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

She added about her role, “My job is to play Fanny Brice. It all comes back to Fanny herself, and that’s what I have to focus on.”

Jason Bateman Accidentally Announced as Winner During Emmys 2020

The 2020 Emmy Awards had a major mix-up.

The ceremony accidentally called Jason Bateman’s name for an award – which was actually meant for someone else – on Saturday night (September 19).

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Jason Bateman

In a voice-over announcement during the online creative arts Emmys, Jason was declared the winner for his guest appearance on HBO’s The Outsider, while the screen correctly displayed the actual winner’s name: This Is Us guest star Ron Cephas Jones.

Confused viewers were informed after a commercial break with an on-screen message that it was an error: “Our apologies, an incorrect winner has been announced. We’re fixing it now,” it read.

Ron Cephas Jones’ name was again displayed, and the Television Academy also tweeted confirmation that he was the actual winner. There was no immediate explanation for the mistake.
