“Hello and welcome to the Pandemmys!”
Kimmel greeted viewers by welcoming them to the Pandemmys — not the Emmys.
Before Aniston presented the award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series, she attempted to clean the winner's card with Lysol, and then burned it in the trash. However, the flames were larger than expected, but luckily, they were able to extinguish the fire for good.
“Laughter probably spreads the virus more.”
"They say that laughter is the best medicine, but this year we learned that's definitely not true. In fact, laughter probably spreads the virus more," Kimmel joked before Schitt's Creek won another award.
USPS And The Election
Kimmel interacted with actor Anthony Carrigan, who played a United States Postal Service worker, onstage. During the bit, Kimmel pointed out that Democrats are pushing to vote by mail in the upcoming election.
“I’m not ready to vote,” Kimmel said. “I just need the envelopes.”
“It’s OK to mail in,” Carrigan replied.
“I’ll do that from my house. Thank you,” Kimmel added.

The actor got tested for the virus while on television. "We're just legally obligated to get COVID tests every hour," he quipped. "Academy policy. But don't worry, you won't even notice she's here."
"Oh wow, that's deep," he added of the uncomfortable test. "I think you dented my brain."
Hazmat Suites, Galore!

Kimmel wore gloves before he gave out an award in the beginning of the show.
Anyone Out There?
Unfortunately, no celebrities were in the audience this year due to COVID-19 safety restrictions. Instead, Kimmel spoke to cardboard cutouts of Hugh Jackman, Tyler Perry and Dan Levy.
