The 2020 Emmys were a strange affair, with this year's ceremonies conducted via Zoom for the first time in history.
Many viewers were surprised and excited to see many Emmy winners clutching the iconic golden statuettes following their victories.
It turns out Emmy workers in hazmat suits were standing by at every nominee's house to hand off the award in the event of a victory. How fun!
Of course, this plan also had a devastating downside. On Twitter, Emmy nominee Ramy Youssef shared what happened to all the nominees that didn't win.
Every losing nominee gets to watch as their Emmy gets carried away from just outside their window.
