Why Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and None of the Kardashian-Jenners Were at the 2020 Emmys

Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner became one of the most viral moments of the 2019 Emmys when the two sisters presented an award for outstanding reality series and got laughed at by the Emmys audience. Kardashian had said, “Our family knows first-hand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves, telling their stories, unfiltered and unscripted." The audience didn't exactly buy it, since Keeping Up With the Kardashians doesn't exactly seem "unfiltered and unscripted."

This year, the Kardashian-Jenner family opted not to join in on the virtual 2020 festivities. Keeping Up With the Kardashians isn't nominated for any award, and none of the sisters were announced as presenters for the ceremony. Essentially, there was no reason for them to be there, especially with no in-person red carpet for a fashion moment or a big after-party to attend.

Was there any lingering drama with last year's show? Likely not: Sources made it clear to Us Weekly shortly after Jenner and Kardashian's awkward onstage moment that the girls didn't know their lines were supposed to be jokes. Still, they laughed the whole thing off.

Us's first source said the two "were not briefed" about the teleprompter lines being "a joke. It was definitely a bit awkward."

Sure, but a second source added that “Kim and Kendall were good sports about it. The line was supposed to be funny. They weren’t bothered by people laughing.”

The Kardashian-Jenners' reality show, by the way, will be ending after its next season. It's unclear whether the family will create any spinoff series from it, move the series to a streaming company like Netflix or Amazon, or if it's really the end of their time on television...at least for now.
