As at the Oscars: Creative Arts Emmy by mistake rewards Jason Bateman
The Emmy Awards ceremony will be held tonight, however, the winners of some technical and creative categories were announced in five online events held in the last five days.
These days replaced the so-called Creative Arts Emmys and it was in the last of them – Saturday night – where an error occurred that made many remember the mistake of the Oscars in 2017, when they announced Lalaland as a winner.
On this occasion, a voiceover announced that the winner as Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series, was the actor Jason Bateman for his appearance in “The Outsider”, despite the actor’s name Ron Cephas Jones de “This is Us” appeared on the screen as the winner.
Confused viewers received an explanation after a short commercial break, via an on-screen message. “Our apologies, a wrong winner was announced. We are fixing it now “, it was read.
At that moment, the name of Cephas Jones appeared on the screen, at the same time that the Television Academy confirmed his triumph, although without providing an explanation for what happened.
However, the actor did not have the opportunity to thank or reappear on the broadcast.
