Kim Kardashian & Kendall Jenner: Um, No One Told Us Our Emmys Speech Was A Joke!

by at .  Updated at .

If you watched the Emmys last night or heard about it, at least, then you're up-to-date on Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner's completely awkward and uncomfortable award presentation. 

And how the entire audience started laughing at them, quite ruthlessly. 

Well, we now have their side of the story, and it's only furthering the awkwardness, people. Brace yourselves.

While the sisters were there to give out the award for Best Reality TV Show Competition, they ran into a little hiccup... but in their defense, it may not have been entirely their fault. 

When Kim read "Our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves," to the audience at the Microsoft Theatre, she didn't quite catch the humor behind her words.


The audience assumed that Kim was making a joke (lol, a really good joke) so, they proceeded to laugh, however, unaware and pissed-off looking Kim put herself in the position of getting laughed at, instead of with

Things only worsened when Kendall made the same mistake as big sis Kim and tried to claim that their show is "unfiltered and unscripted."

But according to Us Weekly, a source shared that Kardashian, 38, and Jenner, 23, "were not briefed" about their teleprompter bits being "a joke."

The insider added that "it was definitely a bit awkward."

Ok, If you were sitting there watching it like me, you know it was more than just a "bit" awkward. 

And that the moment called for at least 3 or 4 rewinds.

But basically, the girls just missed the memo and didn't realize that those lines were supposed to be read as jokes.

We don't know if it's more embarrassing that they didn't pick up on their own joke, or that they actually may have believed what they were reading?

Either way, you gotta admit that this family never fails to entertain, am I right?

Apparently, Kim and Kendall weren't too worried about their unsuccessful moment, and they didn't take it personally.

They "were good sports about it," another source told Us. "The line was supposed to be funny. They weren't bothered by people laughing."

Besides, the sister duo arrived in style and their stunning looks are what stole the night anyway.

The KKW Beauty owner wore a skintight black velvet gown by Vivienne Westwood, which she accessorized with some chunky necklaces, including a cross necklace.

Meanwhile, the Victoria's Secret model killed it in a pink floral Richard Quinn gown, which she paired with a latex Vex turtleneck. 

Kylie Jenner was also set to walk the red carpet and present the award beside her sisters that night, but luckily however, she was too sick to make it. 

"She has been sick for days," a source told the outlet, so Kylie decided to skip out on the event.

After the incident, many fans took to social media to defend the E! TV stars.

One fan made a pretty good point, tweeting, #Emmys @KimKardashian @KendallJenner The fact that they will turn your laughs into millions of cash is funnier."

"You look so stunning Kim and Kendall. Highest paid model and highest paid reality star."

Hm... Mic drop?
