Aniston will miss the Emmy
But this year’s awards ceremony will take place without Jennifer.
No, I’m not going. Just being here is a big step for me. Just baby steps
– said Jennifer Aniston, while in the studio hall of the Jimmy Kimmel show.
She noted that if she suddenly received an award, then producer and director of the show Ben Winston would accept her instead. Whether her colleagues will be at the ceremony – the star did not share.

Despite the danger of infection, last year Aniston attended the Emmy ceremony, albeit as a presenter. Then the awarding ceremony was held online, and the announcement took place live. Jimmy Kimmel was also a partner on the air at that time.
