"Our family knows first hand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves," began Kim's speech.
The Kardashians have experienced worldwide adulation as TV royalty.
But at the 2019 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, a few of the family members found themselves subjects of ridicule when the audience took the award presentation from Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner as a bit ironic.
Kim's speech for Outstanding Competition Series began with "Our family knows first hand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves," which started a wave of giggles that turned into hearty guffaws around the Microsoft Theater.
Kendall quickly followed with "Telling their stories unfiltered and unscripted" but she was already being drowned out by all the loud snickering.
The implied joke was reality television, such as "Keeping Up With The Kardashians", is anything BUT "real people just being themselves".
Kendall seemed to understand the juxtaposition as she looked a bit embarrassed, turning her gaze away from the audience as Kim, unfazed, continued with the announcement.
A montage of the nominees was displayed and when the show came back to the siblings, all seemed back to normal as they claimed the winner "RuPaul's Drag Race" — yet again.
Kylie Jenner, who was slated to present with her older sisters, dodged a bullet as she was noticeably absent.
