While there was no one in attendance at the Emmys on Sunday night, several of the nominees watched the telecast together, including Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washignton.

Witherspoon, 44, and Washington, 43, who both starred in and executive produced the hit Hulu series Little Fires Everywhere, watched the show together at their own little party on Sunday night.

Host Jimmy Kimmel acknowledged that the co-stars were watching the show together, when they admitted that they were actually holding a New Year’s Eve party early.

Kimmel noticed that they were all wearing Happy New Year hats and novelty glasses, and asked why they were wearing those. 

‘Oh, we’re having a New Year’s Eve party,’ Washington admitted, and when Kimmel asked why they were doing that.

‘Well, because we’re ready for this year to be over,’ Witherspoon said, while raising a glass of champagne.

When Kimmel asked if they can just do that, just end the year like that, Witherspoon offered why they could.

‘Well yeah, we’re Emmy-nominated television producers,’ Witherspoon added, referring to their nomination for Little Fires Everywhere. 

Washington then proceeded to count down to the ‘new year,’ ‘though Kimmel said it wasn’t midnight, though Witherspoon countered,’nobody knows what day it is.’

When they counted down to zero they all wished each other a Happy New Year… in mid-September.

While they celebrated, both Witherspoon and Washington wished they could ‘kiss each other’ right now, as they stayed socially distant at different tables.

Kimmel joked that he wished he could kiss them too, Washington said immediately, ‘No we don’t want that, thank you’ as Witherspoon cracked up laughing.

Witherspoon also took to Instagram on Sunday, to reveal that she hosted the Emmys/New Year’s party at her home, with a snap of her in her little black dress.

‘Shortest #Emmys commute yet! Bringing the festivities to my lawn and excited to celebrate the incredible cast and crews of @themorningshow @biglittlelies and @littlefireshulu tonight!’ Witherspoon said, while tagging her production company Hello Sunshine and the Television Academy.

She also shared some behind-the-scenes snaps of her Emmy prep, revealing her dress was by Louis Vuitton.

This year’s Emmys ceremony was quite unique, with only a handful of presenters actually present at Staples Center with host Jimmy Kimmel.

It was previously reported that people in full hazmat suits will be going to the homes of the winners to deliver their Emmy awards in person while they deliver their speech live through video conferencing.

The telecast was also unique in that some of the presenters were everyday Americans and essential workers who have been on the front lines since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Big Brother’s Shane Vincent ices his genitals after getting a vasectomy

big brothers shane vincent ices his genitals after getting a vasectomy

Big Brother’s Shane Vincent underwent a vasectomy this week.

The marriage celebrate, 40, went under the knife after revealing that he was satisfied with his three children and doesn’t want anymore. 

‘Got the snip, the shop is shut after populating the world!’ he announced on Instagram on Thursday.

‘With 3 great kids we are done, easier and better than I thought got the ice packs ready,’ he added. 

He followed the post up with a photo of himself icing his genitals through his shorts.

Shane currently shares three young children with his wife, Jade.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia about his business, The Celebrant Circle, back in June, Shane revealed: ‘I love the energy at weddings, and I truly believe I have the best job in the world.

‘I have so many out-there weddings and I want more! From marrying people on surfboards and stand-up paddle boards, to underneath waterfalls, and dressing up as Elvis or a medieval monk,’ he explained.

The doting dad said he was fortunate to have wed one of the country’s first legal same-sex female couples in 2017, travel overseas for destination ceremonies, and officiate the weddings of many Australian personalities.

However, he joked that there was one ceremony he chose to turn down: ‘I was asked to do a nude wedding once.’

Of moments that have shocked him during ceremonies in the past, Shane said: ‘There has been crazy moments from grooms fainting, to Grandmas having heart attacks, floods and fires. You name it, it has happened during, or at, a wedding.’

However, it was actually a shocking wedding trend he had noticed that inspired him to become a marriage celebrant in the first place.

‘I noticed ceremonies had no personality and nothing about the couple… some of the celebrants even forgetting the grooms name, not once, but several times throughout the ceremony, and I just said to my wife ‘I could do this” Shane said.

Besides working as a celebrate, Shane also has his own reality TV podcast with former reality star Liz Cantor.

'With 3 great kids we are done, easier and better than I thought got the ice packs ready,' Shane said in a post

Julie was left in tears when her husband dedicated his 2020 Brownlow Medal win to her on Sunday night. 

However, while Lachie, 27, was victorious on the night, all eyes were on his glamorous wife of two years. 

Julie donned stunning gown – a racy sheer frock with a hip-high split and glittering embellishments throughout.

The hair stylist and the Brisbane Lions player met when he was just a teenager, but they did not date romantically for some six years later.

The couple were married in November 2018 in Perth, before making a move to Brisbane where Julie was based together.

Lachie switched teams from Fremantle to the Lions after seven seasons in order to settle down in Brisbane with Julie shortly after they wed.
