The Emmys are going full 2020 … presenters will be wearing complete hazmat suits to hand out awards as safely as possible during a deadly pandemic.
Ya gotta see the getup for the presenters who will be visiting some of the winners live during Sunday night’s broadcast … they’re gonna look like a more dapper version of Dustin Hoffman in “Outbreak.”
The Emmy Awards are mostly virtual this year, what with social distancing and all, but producers say there will be some in-person interaction, which creates the need for the Emmy-branded hazmat suit.
We’ve seen Howie Mandel slip on a hazmat suit and gas mask on his way into the “America’s Got Talent” set … and even the famous germaphobe would probably feel safe in this year’s Emmys outfit.
The hazmat suit has designer roots … it’s created and designed by Katja Cahill, the famous costume designer who usually dresses Academy Awards presenters, and executive producer Guy Carrington, who worked with a hazmat manufacturer to customize the suits.
Pretty on-brand for 2020.
