Jennifer Aniston said during her appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” earlier this month that she will not be attending the Emmys on Sunday because she is still taking “baby steps” when it comes to socializing amid the global coronavirus pandemic.Aniston starred in 10 seasons of the hit sitcom “Friends” as Rachel Green. The series’ reunion show, “Friends: The Reunion,” which aired earlier this year, is nominated for four Emmy awards, including outstanding directing for a variety special.Whilst the reunion show has failed to win three of those awards that were announced at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremonies last weekend, the final category, Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded), will be announced on Sunday.The “Friends” star, who appeared on Kimmel’s show Monday, said that appearing on the late-night show was a “big step” for her when asked about the Emmy.
Still from “Friends,” featuring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon who both now star in Apple TV’s “The Morning Show.”
She said that Ben Winston, the producer and director of “Friends: The Reunion,” will be attending the event instead.”This is a big step for me to just be here,” Aniston said, adding: “I’m [taking] baby steps.”It makes sense, especially since last month the 52-year-old actress told InStyle that she’s been cutting out friends out of her life who refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine.”I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [if they’ve been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate,” Aniston said.Metro reported back in July that the Television Academy announced via a statement that live award ceremonies “will have limited audiences of nominees and their guests only” and all attendees “will be required to show proof of vaccination for admittance.”After the announcement that “Friends: The Reunion” was nominated for four Emmys, the “Friends” cast shared praise for the director Winston on social media.Aniston wrote on her Instagram Story: “Congrats to my @friends family on four Emmy nominations. This was such a special reunion for us and we couldn’t be happier to share it all with you. AND extra extra special thanks and shout out to @mrbenwinston who made it all happen. You’re brilliant and WE LOVE YOU!”
