A funny story would be nice, especially during the 2022 Emmys. On September 12, Selena Gomez made an appearance at the annual awards ceremony to give the Outstanding Variety Talk Series award.

The Only Murders in the Building actress, however, playfully made fun of her cherished co-stars before to the announcement of the victor.

Martin Short made a joke about the audience not giving him a standing ovation, which set the whole thing off. Quickly, Steve Martin questioned Selena,  “How much time do we have left?” She said, “With a good diet and exercise, maybe 10, 12 years.”

“Now it’s time to get to the reason why we’re here,”He addressed the audience in the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. “Have you or someone you loved ever considered a reverse mortgage?”

Thankfully, Selena intervened straight away with a joke that is deserving of its own award. “You know what I love about working with these guys?” She questioned. “No paparazzi, ever.”

As the camera switched to Zendaya, who was also giggling with the audience, the audience burst into cheers. Whatever the jokes, Selena has enjoyed her time on the Hulu series, which is up for an Outstanding Comedy Series award.

“I just have to say,” Selena stated, “that being here tonight with Steve Martin and Martin Short is the frosting on the giant, glorious cake of working with them on Only Murders in the Building.”
