Ron Cephas Jones’ Emmy Award was almost given to Jason Bateman. A big mistake was made at the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday night.

When the category for Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series came up, Bobby Cannavale and Rose Byrne presented the award. A professional announcer delivered the name. The issue was that Cephas Jones’ name showed up on the screen for his role in NBC’s “This Is Us,” but Bateman’s name and his role in HBO’s “The Outsider” were said in the voiceover.

The announcer, however, was cut off mid-sentence. “An incorrect winner has been announced. We’re fixing it now. Please don’t go away,” a title card read.

Cephas Jones was announced as the correct winner moments later.

“They announced the correct winner and it was the correct slate, but the voiceover was incorrect,” an Emmys spokesperson told TheWrap. The mistake was due to an “editing issue.”

The virtual award show did not show either winner, so neither Bateman nor Cephas Jones' reactions were caught on camera.

This is Cephas Jones’ second Emmy, previously winning in 2018 for his role on “This Is Us” as William. He was also celebrating his daughter at the Emmys. Jasmine Cephas Jones won an Emmy for her role in Quibi’s “#FreeRayshawn,” making them the first father-daughter duo to win Emmys in one year.

“As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream,” the “This Is Us” star said in a virtual press room, according to Deadline.

The Primetime Emmys air Sunday at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
