Jimmy Kimmel receives criticism for interrupting Quinta Brunson’s Emmy speech
The Emmy Awards for 2022 were shown on ABC last night. There were a lot of viral moments, but one, in particular, had fans buzzing for all the wrong reasons. Because of her work on the comedy series Abbot Elementary, Quinta Brunson was awarded the Emmy for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series. On the other hand, Jimmy Kimmel acted as though he was passing out on stage while Hillary was delivering her speech. Even though it is very evident that Jimmy Kimmel meant the act to be nothing more than a light-hearted jest, a great number of fans have voiced their indignation. They believe that he should issue an apology for interrupting what could have been a pivotal moment in Quinta Brunson’s professional life. The actress had to step over Jimmy Kimmel in order to give her acceptance speech, which is not how these moments are meant to go down.
During the press conference that took place after the Emmy Awards, Quinta was questioned by a reporter about the event. According to the actress and producer, Jimmy’s bit on stage did not hurt her as much as she had anticipated. On the other hand, her opinion could change in the future. She also stated that Jimmy Kimmel has always been a booster of her profession and that he was even one of the first people to see Abbot Elementary. This was something that she mentioned in her interview. It would appear that Quinta is not bothered by the events that transpired during the Emmy broadcast on ABC. Quinta Brunson, who was involved in the controversy surrounding the Emmys, has confirmed that she will appear as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live during the upcoming week. It is possible that the host will discuss the stunt at that point.
In other news regarding Abbot Elementary, the program was awarded two trophies at the Emmys that took place last night. However, the award for “Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series” that Sheryl Lee Ralph took home for her work on “Abbot Elementary” is the one that has generated the most buzz among fans of the show. This was also the first time in the actress’s illustrious career spanning five decades that she was nominated for an Emmy award. The good news for anyone who enjoys watching Abbot Elementary on ABC is that the show will be returning on September 21. The fact that the first season of the show got a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes shows that people have very high hopes for the second season, which is coming up soon.
