Ryan Reynolds, the king of wit, might have been a no-show at the 2024 Emmy Awards, but his pal, Rob McElhenney stepped in to ensure the event stayed hilarious. The 46-year-old actor shared a hilarious selfie, snapped by his wife Kaitlin Olson, featuring the couple in the audience at the 75th Emmy Awards. However, McElhenney’s focus seemed more on the Philadelphia Eagles’ playoff match against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers than the awards, as evidenced by the post’s encouraging hashtags for the team.

The actor, in the absence of Reynolds, took home the Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program award for Welcome To Wrexham. He captioned his post saying, “Worth it I guess Up the town“. Rob McElhenney, a die-hard Eagles enthusiast, also took the stage to present an award at Monday night’s Emmy Awards ceremony. Interestingly, the timing clashed with the Birds’ playoff game against Tampa Bay.

McElhenney, however, determined not to miss a moment of his favorite team’s quest for a Super Bowl run, cleverly found a way to both catch the game and attend the awards ceremony. Little did he know, attending the Emmys might have paid off handsomely, with Welcome To Wrexham snagging five Creative Arts Emmy Awards. McElhenney’s not caring much about the awards comes after he and Ryan Reynolds got recognized earlier this month at the Creative Arts Emmys for Welcome to Wrexham.
