Laverne Cox was one of the few stars who appeared live and in person at Sunday’s Emmy Awards. The 48-year-old Orange Is the New Black star wowed in a black cutout Kim Kassas Couture jumpsuit as she presented the award for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series.
But fans were confused when Cox was censored while doing a funny bit about her lack of Emmy wins.
“I am living proof of the American dream that anyone in this country can lose the Emmy four years in the same category and yet somehow end up on this stage presenting an award to someone who probably didn’t…” Cox says before the ABC cameras seemingly censored her.
#emmys This was so odd 😂😂. Gave off Joan Crawford vibes. Laverne killed this dress though 🔥 #Emmy#Emmys2020#EmmyAwards#lavernecoxpic.twitter.com/bim0vlP6fR
The moment confused fans online, and what was even more baffling was that when the clip was shared by the Television Academy, it showed that Cox didn’t say anything worthy of a censor.
The full line from Cox was “presenting an award to someone who probably didn’t effing vote for me.” It is unclear why the cameras chose to censor Cox or if she went off script while presenting.
Cox was nominated four times for her role as Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black, including during Sunday’s show, but never took home a trophy. While presenting on Sunday night, she went on to joke, “What happens to an American dream deferred? Does it shrivel up like a raisin in the sun? Stick to the script Laverne, stick to the script. And now here are the nominees for Writing in a Drama Series.”
