Jimmy Kimmel could also be bitter — however he didn’t must carry Quinta Brunson down with him.

On Sunday, Kimmel and Will Arnett did a bit earlier than asserting the winner of the Excellent Writing for a Comedy Collection Emmy. Principally Arnett dragged Kimmel onto the Emmy ceremony stage by his toes as a result of Kimmel was upset that his discuss present, “Jimmy Kimmel Stay,” misplaced the range discuss collection Emmy as soon as once more to “Final Week Tonight.”

Kimmel remained on the ground, seemingly upset, as Arnett introduced that Brunson had received in her class.

Because the “Abbott Elementary” creator walked onstage to present her acceptance speech, Kimmel remained on the ground.

“Jimmy, get up, I received,” Brunson informed Kimmel, however he didn’t budge.

Kimmel stayed on the ground for the whole lot of Brunson’s speech — and needed to be dragged off after Brunson was performed.

Though some loved that Kimmel totally dedicated to the bit, extra had been upset that he stole Brunson’s shine throughout her large second.

ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” is a family-friendly sitcom that airs on community tv. However what makes this seemingly conventional comedy really feel so contemporary is that it’s a present created by a Black girl (Brunson) and it stars a predominantly Black solid that doesn’t give attention to “speaking about being Black all day,” as Brunson informed The New York Times in March. She defined to the newspaper that her present is extra concerned with “these individuals’s lives.”

“There have been latest sitcoms — ‘Black-ish,’ ‘Contemporary Off the Boat’ — actually good sitcoms, however my technology was beginning to get uninterested in race as the one focus,” she stated. “The white reveals received to only be white, however quite a lot of the reveals with individuals of coloration had been concerning the coloration of the individuals and never about tales of the individuals. So ‘Abbott’ additionally appears like a shift in that means.”

Kimmel’s transfer additionally appears disrespectful as a result of Brunson made Emmy history in July when the nominations had been introduced.

She landed nominations for Excellent Lead Actress in a Comedy Collection, Excellent Comedy Collection and Excellent Writing for a Comedy Collection. In doing so, she turned the first Black woman to attain three nominations within the comedy classes in the identical yr.

Contemplating that Brunson received solely one among these classes makes Kimmel’s dedication to his bit really feel a bit off.

After her speech, whereas chatting with reporters, Brunson addressed Kimmel mendacity on the stage throughout her second.

“I felt just like the bit didn’t hassle me that a lot…. Tomorrow possibly I’ll be mad at him. I’m going to be on his present on Wednesday, so I’d punch him within the face.”

Punch or not, right here’s hoping Brunson slickly writes in a reference to this Emmy second throughout Season 2 of “Abbott Elementary,” which begins airing on ABC subsequent week.
