Jason Bateman is nominated for his role in “Ozark” at the 2020 Emmys
Tonight will take place the gala of the 72nd edition of the Emmy Awards but it will only be the final episode of a series of awards ceremonies that have been developed throughout this week. Due to the coronavirus crisis, this year the American Television Academy has been forced to hold all these events online, with this Sunday being the one in which the main awards will be presented and those presented by Jimmy Kimmel.
At Saturday's event, there was a “La La Land / Moonlight moment” in awarding the Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series award. Bobby Cannavale and Rose Byrne were in charge of announcing the name of the winner among the nominees : Jason Bateman for The Outsider ”, Ron Cephas Jones for“ This is Us ”, James Cromwell for“ Succession ”, Giancarlo Esposito for“ The Mandalorian, “Andrew Scott for” Black Mirror, “and Martin Short for” The Morning Show. ”
In a voiceover announcement during the Emmys, the star of “Ozark” was declared the winner for his guest appearance on HBO's “The Outsider,” while the screen correctly displayed the winner's real name: the guest star of “ This Is Us ”, Ron Cephas Jones.
When announcing the winner, the voiceover said “Jason Bateman as Terry Maitland in” The Outsider “, while the screen said something else.
Confused viewers were informed after a commercial break with an on-screen message that it was a mistake: ” Our apologies, a wrong winner has been announced. We are fixing it now, ” it read. Indeed, Bateman was not the winner of the award. In his place was Ron Cephas Jones , in the same week his daughter Jasmine Cephas Jones also got another Emmy for #Freerayshawn , Quibi series.
