Giuliana Rancic Is Missing Emmys 2020 After Testing Positive for Coronavirus

Giuliana Rancic was scheduled to host E!’s Live from the Red Carpet special for the 2020 Emmy Awards, but she’s missing from the show as she tested positive for coronavirus.

The 46-year-old television personality says that she found out she contracted COVID-19 while being tested as part of E!’s guidelines ahead of the event.

Giuliana said that her husband Bill Rancic and their son Duke also tested positive.

“Hey, everyone. As I go into my 20th year on the E! red carpet I have to say I do not take missing an award show lightly, but unfortunately this year is just so different,” Giuliana said in a video message aired on the show. “As part of E! and NBCUniversal’s very strict testing guidelines, especially before an event like this, I did find out that I tested positive for COVID-19. Now as much as I didn’t want to hear that, I’m very thankful I heard it before I traveled and possibly could have exposed other people. So for that, I’m thankful.”

She added, “As far as my health, I’m doing well. My husband Bill and our son [Duke] also did test positive, but we’re all doing well and taking care each other so I’m going to get back to doing that. But I just want to say I’m wishing you all the best and please protect yourselves and protect those around you. Take good care and I’ll see you on the next red carpet.”

Jason Bateman Accidentally Announced as Winner During Emmys 2020

The 2020 Emmy Awards had a major mix-up.

The ceremony accidentally called Jason Bateman’s name for an award – which was actually meant for someone else – on Saturday night (September 19).

In a voice-over announcement during the online creative arts Emmys, Jason was declared the winner for his guest appearance on HBO’s The Outsider, while the screen correctly displayed the actual winner’s name: This Is Us guest star Ron Cephas Jones.

Confused viewers were informed after a commercial break with an on-screen message that it was an error: “Our apologies, an incorrect winner has been announced. We’re fixing it now,” it read.

Ron Cephas Jones’ name was again displayed, and the Television Academy also tweeted confirmation that he was the actual winner. There was no immediate explanation for the mistake.
