Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, beloved Hollywood couple, aren’t about to make a virtual appearance at tonight’s Emmys ceremony, as much as the world may like to see them. Reynolds and Lively have no reason to be there: Neither has a nomination, and neither has done any TV series recently that have received a nomination. They weren’t tapped to be presenters either. In fact, Lively and Reynolds have never attended the Emmys together.
Lively may have an opportunity to be part of an Emmy-eligible series in the future. The former Gossip Girl actress closed a first-look deal with Amazon in July 2019 and is developing a series set in New York City with a “fashion component.”
For now, Reynolds is back to work on his upcoming film Red Notice. He shared photos of himself, taken by Lively, getting a COVID-19 test. “Back to work on #RedNotice,” he captioned the shot. “The Covid Test is quick and easy. The doctor places the swab up your nose, just deep enough to tickle your childhood memories and then it’s over. No matter what you say to him, he won’t buy you dinner first. 📷: @blakelively.”

Lively has spoken out before about being seen as someone who has a perfect life, husband, and family, calling it “nonsense.”
That kind of narrative, “it simplifies people,” she told Glamour in its September 2017 issue. “Not all men, but a subsection of men, have a desire to understand and control women. To do that, you have to paint them into this thing you can wrap your head around. But women are complex. It also is [a reminder] that what you see in the media is not real life. The night before an interview, I have complete anxiety: How is this person going to spin me? So when you read, ‘Oh, she’s got a perfect life,’ or ‘Her life is crumbling’—they pick narratives for everyone. And the narratives stick.”
Lively added that both she and her husband Ryan Reynolds are very conscious of this narrative. “My husband and I are really shy people who express ourselves best when we’re acting, when we’re hiding as someone else,” she said. “So the fact that very shy people have to share that shy person with the world—and are sometimes hurt by it—it’s very weird emotionally. Anyway, champagne problems.”
