“Our family knows first-hand that compelling television comes from real people being themselves,” said Kardashian, 38, “Telling their stories unfiltered and unscripted,” added Jenner, 23, which drew laughter from the audience.
Viewers on social media immediately noticed the audience’s reaction to Kardashian and Jenner’s presentation pointing out that it seemed as though the actors in attendance weren’t laughing with at the sisters at all, but laughing at them.
“Eeeek. There was a very loud laugh from the audience when Kim Kardashian was presenting. Laughing at her; not with her. It was uncomfortable (and, in my opinion, uncalled for) in the room,” wrote one user on Twitter, while many others echoed the sentiment.
“The crowd laughing when Kim Kardashian & Kendall Jenner -presenting the Emmy for best reality show -talked about being real and unscripted is priceless!!!” said another viewer.
“I can't be the only one who heard the audience laugh when Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner were presenting? Am I?” asked an additional viewer.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” would beat out “The Amazing Race” as well as “The Voice,” for the top honor.
