Selma Blair receives warm applause for Emmys appearance at final award show

Selma Blair presented at the 74th Emmy Awards and received a standing ovation for her appearance.

The actor received a nearly minute-long round of applause from the evening’s attendees as she prepared to present the award for Outstanding Drama Series. Wearing a black dress adorned with a large gold flower, the actress took to the stage using a cane, which she has used since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2019.

“I’m so honored to be here tonight to present the final award for Outstanding Drama Series,” she began once the applause finally died down. Shortly after, she revealed the winner of the award was the HBO dark comedy series “Succession.”

Blair’s appearance as the final presenter of the evening was hailed by viewers on social media platforms.

“Selma Blair as the evening’s final presenter is unexpected – but also absolutely wonderful #Emmys“, remarked a Twitter user.

Throughout the awards ceremony, the presenters’ characters and careers seemed to coordinate on some level with the award they were to reveal. For the Outstanding Variety Talk Series Award, TV host Seth Meyers presented.

For many, the fact that Blair – who has been open about how multiple sclerosis has limited her ability to walk and move – was selected to present the Outstanding Series award proved particularly special.

“Disability representation is important,” commented one user.
