Jennifer Aniston Extinguishes Trash-Can Fire While Presenting at 2020 Emmys

September 20, 2020

This year’s show is on fire.

Jennifer Aniston put out a fire in a trash can while presenting at the 2020 Emmy Awards on Sunday.

Aniston joined Jimmy Kimmel to present the award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series early on in the ceremony.

But before revealing the winner, Aniston and Kimmel put on a comedy bit of their own, dousing the category’s envelope in hand sanitizer before lighting it on fire as a safety step in preventing the spread of coronavirus.

The “Friends” star pulled out a fire extinguisher and aimed at the flaming envelope in a trash can.

She put the fire out once, before extinguishing two more times when it relit after Kimmel picked it up out of the bin using tongs.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” posted the moment on their official Twitter account.

“THANK GOD FOR JENNIFER ANISTON! #Emmys,” the tweet’s caption read.

The 2020 Emmys air Sunday, Sept. 20 at 8pm ET on ABC. Check in for the full winners list with live updates on RADIO.COM.
