Emmys 2020: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow stage a mini-Friends reunion
Jennifer Aniston, who was up for best lead actress in a drama series for The Morning Show, appeared during the virtual broadcast alongside her Friends co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow.
The 72nd Emmy Awards on Sunday, 20 September threw in a surprise Friends mini-reunion no one on social media anticipated.
Jennifer Aniston, who was up for best lead actress in a drama series for The Morning Show, appeared during the virtual broadcast alongside her Friends co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow. However, Euphoria star Zendaya took home the award.
Aniston presented awards in one of the categories with the show host, Jimmy Kimmel, and later made an appearance virtually while her category nominations were announced.
Cox, who was Aniston's roommate in the popular sitcom Friends, said during the video call, "We live together." When Kimmel asked the trio, "You do?" Jennifer Aniston replied, "We've been roommates since 1994, Jimmy."
Jason Bateman also crashed the reunion at the Emmys.

HBO Max is set to release an unscripted special featuring all the stars of the show. Filming of it was postponed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Aniston last spoke about the status of the special in August, explaining that while it has been postponed again due to COVID-19, it will be worth the wait.
In 2002, Aniston had won the Emmy for best actress in a comedy series for playing Rachel Green in Friends.
In Honk For Jesus…the way the couple Lee-Curtis and Trinitie bond is excruciatingly funny. You can see they are acting, even when alone. Writer-director Adamma Ebo is unsparing in her indictment of organized religion.
Aftersun’s final act shows Calum and Sophie dancing to Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure. Feelings are felt. Emotions are stirred. A tear or two rolls down. Perhaps, in the afterlife, Calum is happy that Sophie is trying to process her trauma instead of passing it on to her child.
