The actress donned a pair of pyjamas and a sequined robe to connect to Sunday’s ceremony from the comfort of her own home and she admitted she enjoyed not having to dress up and walk a red carpet event.

She took to Instagram to post an image of herself looking cosy, however, with make-up as she says this is what her character, on The Good Place, Tahani would have wanted.

“No bra? No heels? NO PROBLEM. Wearing PJ’s to the 72nd Emmy awards (from my house) is my kind of vibes. Excited to see if we win any of the 7 awards we have been nominated for!!!! I still did my make-up and wore a sequin dressing gown, because... It’s what Tahani would have wanted. And this is her day, not mine,” she captions the image.

The star also admits she’d never felt more comfortable at an awards ceremony. “This is the most comfortable I have ever been at the Emmys!” she tells Live from the Red Carpet.

Jameela also jokes she’s never had a perfectly toned physique because she can’t be bothered to make the effort. “This is why I’ve never had abs. Because I can’t be bothered to do anything that’s going to take a long time,” she adds.
