Jennifer Aniston Just Revealed Why She's Skipping the 2021 Emmys

The actress scored a nomination for the HBO Max Friends reunion special.

Despite being nominated for an Emmy this year, actress Jennifer Aniston has announced that she will not be present at the grand event on Sunday. She has been recognized in the Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) category for her part in the Friends reunion on HBO Max. However, due to ongoing concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, she decided not to attend. In Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Aniston said, "I will not be going. This is still a big step for me to be here. Just baby steps." Aniston, 52, has consistently advocated for wearing masks and maintaining social distance since the pandemic began. On Tuesday, she further shared that as a safety measure, she has been sticking to the confines of her home and has limited her social interactions to a small group of friends. "We had this little bubble of friends, thank God, I love all of you so much. But yeah, it was hard," she expressed on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

For the upcoming Emmy Awards in Los Angeles this Sunday, only around 600 attendees will be permitted due to scaled-down measures, as stated by Variety. Additionally, it's mandated for every attendee to provide a negative COVID-19 test result and proof of vaccination, as reported by Variety. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Aniston mentioned that director and producer Ben Winston would receive the award on behalf of the Friends reunion if they win an Emmy. Not long ago, Aniston shared how her relationships have changed due to the pandemic. During her interview with InStyle, she revealed that she had to let go of some people from her life because they either refused to get vaccinated or didn't disclose their vaccination status. "A considerable group of individuals are either anti-vaxxers or simply ignore the facts, which is very disappointing. I've lost a few people from my regular routine who either declined or did not reveal their vaccination status, which was quite unfortunate," she declared to the magazine. The world is still battling COVID-19, and like Aniston, you also need to make choices that you're most comfortable with at present.
