Bill Hader Was One Of The Only People Wearing A Mask Inside The 2022 Emmy Awards, And He Skipped The Red Carpet Too

Looks like the Barry star was thinking about protecting himself from COVID-19 at the ceremony.

Bill Hader's the star of the HBO comedy Barry, which was nominated for 14 Emmys this year.

He was also personally nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor and Outstanding Director in a Comedy Series.

But Bill didn't walk the red carpet at this year's Emmy Awards — and when he was inside for the ceremony, he sported what looks like a KN95 mask.

Bill's mask-wearing was notable, since he was pretty much the only person you could see wearing a mask during the ceremony...

Despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic is, y'know, still kind of a thing.

And, hey, it looks like Bill was having a good time, too. Rock on, Bill — sorry you didn't win. Maybe next year!
