Compared to last year, the 73rd annual event promises to have a lot of exciting things in store. Last year’s Emmys were much different than usual, as the event was held virtually amid the coronavirus pandemic. Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Tracee Ellis Ross and Jimmy Kimmel were among a limited number of stars who actually attended the show in person.

Most celebs like Reese Witherspoon, on the other hand, tuned in from the safety of their home. The Legally Blonde alum joked about having the “shortest Emmys commute yet” while sharing a photo of her stunning look via Instagram. “Bringing the festivities to my lawn and excited to celebrate the incredible cast and crews,” she wrote in the caption.

Plenty of others also virtually joined from their living rooms, such as D’Arcy Carden, Yvonne Orji, Gabrielle Union and more. The Good Place star Jameela Jamil also gave a glimpse at her casual Emmys look, which featured colorful loungewear and her long brunette locks over her shoulders.
