The TV industry‚Äôs shiniest night of the year, a.k.a. the Primetime Emmy Awards, looked much different this year, given the never-ending pandemic. The ceremony’s host, Jimmy Kimmel, was literally fired up to emcee the festivities again, this time from the mostly vacant Staples Center in L.A., with winners accepting awards remotely, virtually, and digitally. If you tuned in just for Meryl, there wasn’t much to see. She was nominated as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for “Big Little Lies” along her co-star Laura Dern as well as Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve), Sarah Snook (Succession), Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown), Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Thandie Newton (Westworld), but “lost” to Ozark’s Julia Garner, and wasn’t featured by camera during the nominations. Garner took to Instagram after winning the Emmy to praise her fellow nomninees, including Meryl: “Also I want to give a special thanks to Meryl Streep, who wasn’t on the zoom call tonight. When I was 15 I watched Sophie’s Choice and it made me want to be an actress. I wouldn’t be doing this if it weren’t for you. And thank god because I don’t really know how to do anything else!! So thank you. Love to you all!!” The category segment can be watched below and in the video archive.
