Actress Jennifer Aniston, known from “Friends” and “The Morning Show”, said that, for her own sake, she will not attend the Sunday gala where the Primetime Emmy trophies will be awarded.
Aniston, nominated along with Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and other producers for the special program “Friends” (HBO Max), made the announcement on the show “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.
“No, I will not go,” she said, adding that producer and director Ben Winston will be present and accept the award on her behalf if “Friends” wins. “It’s a big step for me to be here. Small steps “, she added.
The actress told Kimmel that she has been at home for a long time since the beginning of the pandemic as a precaution. She said that the filming for the second season of “The Morning Show” (Apple TV Plus) took place with all the safety measures in the health context, that she gave some interviews and visited her friends Courtney Cox and Jason Bateman.
“I had this little bubble of friends – thank God, I love you so much – but, yes, it was hard. Strange times “, added the star, who recently launched a line of hair care products.
She will be seen with Reese Witherspoon in the second season of “The Morning Show” starting Friday.
After taking place in virtual format last year, the Primetime Emmy gala will return this year to a format close to the one before the pandemic. Television Academy said all safety measures are being taken, including reducing the number of participants, who must test negative for a Covid test or proof of vaccination. The event will take place in Los Angeles, outdoors, near the Microsoft Theater.
“Friends” was also nominated for set design, directing and special entertainment program. In the “variety special” category it competes with Bo Burnham’s “Inside”, “Hamilton” (Disney Plus), Dave Chappelle’s “8:46”, “American Utopia” (HBO and David Byrne) and “West Wing” ( HBO Max).
