Jennifer Aniston announced her decision in the program “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. She explained that she would not go to the Emmy gala because she was afraid of the so-called Coronavirus Delta variant. Earlier in an interview with “In Style” she said that she avoids contact with unvaccinated people, as well as with those who refuse to answer the question of whether they get vaccinated.
Jennifer Aniston has been nominated for eight Emmy Awards. She received the statuette only once, in 2002. Of course, for the role of Racza Green in the cult series “Friends”. Now he has a chance to win an award for the special episode of this production, “Friends: Meeting After Years”.
In Kimmel’s show, Aniston admitted that she is concerned about her safety as more and more people become infected with the Delta variant. She also announced that if during the next gala of presenting prestigious awards, known as “TV Oscars”, she would receive a statuette, the director Ben Winston would pick it up on her behalf.
Jennifer Aniston added that she spends most of her time at home because of the pandemic. She only leaves to work on the set of the second season of The Morning Show, and to visit friends Jason Bateman and Courteney Cox or give an interview.
