Emmy Awards: TV stars reveal what they've been doing in quarantine

The COVID-19 pandemic and the quarantine lockdown that has been in place for many over the past six months was a hot topic of conversation during the Emmy Awards on Sunday night.

Host Jimmy Kimmel even had some fun with everyone’s pandemic lockdown activities, with a brief segment where he asked several TV stars how they’ve been spending their lockdown. 

Stars who gave fans some humorous insight into their lockdown life include Will Arnett, Tatiana Maslany and The Bachelor host Chris Harrison.

The segment began with Kimmel stating, ‘Many of us have been cooped up at home for months now, we’ve been passing the quaran-time in our own way.’

He added that they asked several TV stars, ‘to share what they’ve been up to since everything went to hell.’

First up was Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson, who made some odd breathing gestures before admitting he’s been ‘riding my bike.’

Perry Mason star Tatiana Maslany added she has been, ‘making wine in my bathroom toilet,’ before taking a swig and admitting, ‘It’s not good.’  

The next segment came from the hit animated show Rick & Morty, with Rick saying he’s just been ‘wiping down groceries.’ Morty asks Rick if he could do something about the pandemic and Rick says, ‘Why would I? Do you know how much we’re saving in mouth animation?’

Mrs. America star Margo Martindale added she’s been, ‘spending a lot of time in quarantine working on my garden,’ before pulling out a bottle of wine and drinking.

The Lego Masters star Will Arnett said from a sound booth he’s been, ‘really get to know myself,’ adding that a lot of people say he’s a real *expletive* and he doesn’t know that side of himself, and it turns out they’re right.
