The two were about to hand out the award for Outstanding Reality TV when Kardashian, the star of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” said: “Our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves.”
Jenner chimed in: “Telling their stories unfiltered and unscripted.”
The audience could be heard laughing at their spiel. Some outlets reported that the two appeared annoyed at the reaction, but that isn’t so clear on the replay.
There is also a chance that Kim K and Kendall were in on the joke ― or were at least self-aware enough to see the humor in their remarks.
Comedian Kathy Griffin, who said she used to live next door to Kardashian and husband Kanye West, told “Entertainment Tonight” (in the segment above) that the Emmys audience did indeed laugh. Don’t shed any tears for Kim K and crew, though. “They get laughed at and go home and count their money,” the comic said.

Did they just laugh at Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner? Kendall’s face seemed annoyed. How sad. #Emmys— armando (@mialterego) September 23, 2019
how rude and unprofessional of the crowd? Who’s lame idea was it to burst out laughing as they present an award?? People are so low and not respectful at all. These girls don’t deserve more than half of the hate they get from people seriously...grow tf up #Emmys2019 pic.twitter.com/xeBNs9gLb7— kendallnicole.style (@KendallNStyle) September 23, 2019
