Kim Kardashian And Kendall Jenner Had An Awkward Moment On The Emmys Stage

So, were they in on the joke or not?

Most awkwardness at the 2019 Emmys came from the commentator's oddly toned remarks. But one weird moment happened when Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner took the stage.

After the duo walked out to introduce the award for Outstanding Competition Program, they got an unexpected laugh out of the audience.

But, um, it was not clear if the audience was laughing at them or with them.

Here's when the moment in question happened:

Did the audience laugh when Kim Kardashian said “our family knows first hand how truly compelling TV comes from real people just being themselves”? Let’s examine the receipts ... #Emmys

It was when Kim suggested that Keeping Up With the Kardashians consists of "real people just being themselves." I mean, technically that is true — but we all know that the "reality" in reality TV is definitely a stretch. For one, some of the scenes are scripted and reshot, as evidenced by the court documents from Kim's divorce from Kris Humphries obtained by Life & Style.

There was definitely laughing in the audience during this moment.

But Kim seemed to grin after she made that comment, when the laughter began to roll in, as Kendall continued, "telling their stories, unfiltered and unscripted."

Either way, people at home definitely clocked it.

Did everyone just laugh after The Kardashians after said something how they “are just being themselves?” Haha So awkward. #Emmys2019

It was undisputedly awkward.

Wait did the audience just laugh at the Kardashians?! #Emmys

While a lot of people are assuming Kim wasn't in on the joke...

Did the #Emmys audience just laugh at Kim Kardashian? I don't think she was telling a joke.

...if there's one thing we know about the Kardashian/Jenners it's that they're always one step ahead of everyone else.
