Sarah Silverman, who had taken the aisle seat, was spotted on camera sleeping or at least pretending to sleep. Read on to know why.
The 2019 Emmys had its moments of drama and then it had stand-up comedian Sarah Silverman dozing off as Saturday Night Live was announced as the winner of the Outstanding Variety Sketch Comedy. The entire cast of SNL were just a few seats away when the winner was announced and the team began hugging and congratulating each other. However, the camera then panned a little to the right and Sarah, who had taken the aisle seat, was spotted on camera sleeping or at least pretending to sleep.
While we’re not sure whether the nap was a real one or no, the comedian woke up and asked around “Who Won?”. It may as well have been a dig since Sarah’s ‘I love America’ lost to SNL who picked up an Emmy yet again. Netizens also shared similar feelings as Sarah as one user called it a ‘snorefest’. Check out some of the reactions to Sarah’s viral video:

Ahead of the Emmys night, Sarah also voiced her concerns on the red carpet about shows and artists being cancelled left, right and centre. Speaking to Kelly Osbourne, Sarah said, “There’s a kind of righteousness porn going on in this cancel culture. There’s a nuance to it. There’s good and there’s bad. As a stand-up, it’s really odd. To talk about what’s really going on or to talk about the world as we decide to see it — or to push to see where the line is and to go past it — is so oddly unacceptable it’s safer to just make p**sy jokes.” The last bit was eventually censored by Fox.
