Don’t expect to see a red carpet or an on-stage acceptance speech during this year’s Emmys, which air in the US this Sunday.
There Are 130 Ways That This Years Emmys Could Go Horribly Wrong
As with our day-to-day lives, the award show will look very different due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Instead of broadcasting live from a celebrity-filled venue, TV’s biggest night will feature 130 live feeds from around the world, which will stream into the Staples Center from the homes and backyards of the 2020 nominees.
From New York to Los Angeles, London to Berlin, each remote star is being sent a fully assembled unit that features a camera, laptop, ring light and boom mic. And, apparently, all they have to do is plug it in.
That means there are 130 ways something can go horribly wrong. “You have so many things coming in and also so many things that can stop coming in,” executive producer Ian Stewart joked during a virtual press Q&A on Wednesday, noting that the Staples Center was the only facility that could handle all the incoming signals.
“Trying to get to the middle of nowhere to get one of [the camera units] installed in somebody’s house and to get it up and running ― and, of course, under all of the precautions that we obviously are taking ― is a logistic nightmare. How could it possibly go wrong?” 
The only safety net celebrities will have is a helpful if distant technician or producer, who will work with them behind the scenes to make sure their camera is up and running and they’re set for their appearance. They’ll even alert talent to whether they have time to use the bathroom or finish that slice of pizza. Fellow executive producer Reginald Hudlin said the expected chaos will be part of the fun.
Some stars may forget to unmute themselves; others may unknowingly say something inappropriate on live TV. The show will have a more relaxed and authentic feel, with nominees at home, perhaps in their pajamas, curled up on the couch with their dogs or children. 
“We’re essentially making things up as we go along,” Hudlin said. “I know that’s not the most reassuring answer, but it’s kind of the truth! We’ve never done this before.” 
The show is set to be live as much as possible, aside from a few hosting bits by Jimmy Kimmel and prepackaged montages. Around a dozen brave celebrities will also be there alongside Jimmy at the Staples Center for skits and routines. 
“We decided let’s not do the easy route here and the sanitised route here and do lots of prerecorded things and put them all together and bolt them back to back and put out something that’s sort of generic,” Stewart said.
“We’re in this time ― a stumbling block can be a steppingstone depending on how you use it. This is a time to be a bit loose and to have a lot more fun, so live, live, live, live, live, live, live, whenever we can do live. And things like a nomination package is pretty hard to do live, but anything that we can do live, we will do live.” 
Singer-songwriter H.E.R. will also be performing during the In Memoriam segment, which Hudlin said will be “extraordinary.” 
ABC announced that the likes of Jason Bateman, Sterling K. Brown, Laverne Cox, Count Von Count of Sesame Street, Morgan Freeman, Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, Lin-Manuel Miranda, D-Nice, Randall Park, RuPaul, Patrick Stewart and Jason Sudeikis will all be part of the broadcast, joining previously announced talent Anthony Anderson, America Ferrera, Issa Rae, Gabrielle Union, J.J. Watt, Lena Waithe and Oprah Winfrey
It’s sure to be an adventure and, hey, something to keep us entertained. 
The Emmys, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air in the US on Sunday night on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
