Ramy Youssef did not win either of the two Emmys for which he was nominated on Sunday. And the star of Hulu’s “Ramy” showed everyone on Twitter just how awkward losing is during the pandemic-era Emmys.
Since the show has to be virtual this year, all of the Emmy nominees are excepting their trophies remotely, complete with people in the fanciest hazmat suits ever to physically give the winners their prize (at least in the case of the comedy prizes). But for those that lose out, it’s a bit weirder.
Just ask Youssef himself, who posted a video on Twitter of a prize-clutching guy in a hazmat suit outside the sliding glass doors of his house, which you can see below. Hey, at least they waved goodbye. And now we can too.

Youssef, who stars in Hulu’s “Ramy,” was nominated for Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. He lost both to “Schitt’s Creek,” which is getting an insane amount of Emmy love for its final season. The Pop TV series has won nine awards (and counting) including every acting award and Outstanding Comedy, setting a record in the process.

With Emmy favs “Game of Thrones” and “Fleabag” gone, who will take their place?
These are our best guesses for what shows will come out on top at Sunday's 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, but beware: It wouldn't be the Emmys if a few of the winners didn't come out of the blue.
