The Emmys will look extremely different this year.
Not only will the television awards show be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but celebrities will also be permitted to skip the usual gowns and suits for the digital red carpet.
In a letter to acting nominees, the show’s producers and host Jimmy Kimmel revealed some details about plans for the September 20th event, according to Variety.
The letter assures A-listers that a team of technicians are “going to make you look fabulous” and that “we’re exploring the cutting edge of technology to allow to use good cameras and lighting and look forward to working with you to produce your unique ‘on screen’ moments.’”
As for the typical black tie dress code? This year, anything goes.
“Our informal theme for the night is ‘come as you are, but make an effort!’” the letter declares.
“If you want to be in formal wear, we’d love that, but equally if you’re in the UK and it’s 3 a.m., perhaps you want to be in designer pajamas and record from your bed! We want to work with you to style your moments, but want you to guide us on your levels of comfort — where you want to be, who you want to be with, what you want to wear etc.”
Here’s hoping Meryl Streep, who’s up for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, shows up in a glamorous caftan.
