Jimmy Kimmel has been in a bit of hot water this week, after he was accused of stealing the spotlight from “Abbott Elementary” creator and star Quinta Brunson during an attempted comedy bit on Monday’s Emmy Awards. Kimmel apologized to Brunson on his show Wednesday, but before that, on his Tuesday show, Kimmel had fun with a category he joked had been left out at the Emmys.

During his monologue on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” the host noted that the Television Academy had left out an important category at the Emmys. Since politics are all over TV nowadays — as any Oregon viewer feeling overwhelmed by election ads can testify — Kimmel said he was presenting nominations for “Outstanding Performance In a Political Ad.”

Among the nominees were none other than Stan Pulliam, the mayor of Sandy, Oregon, who waged an unsuccessful campaign to win the Republican nomination in the race for Oregon governor. Labeling it “Stansphobia,” Kimmel aired a commercial in which Pulliam announced he was “leading the fight to not allow transgender athletes to compete in girls’ sports.”

Other nominees appeared to be, like Pulliam, striving to establish their conservative credentials. Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, for example, was featured in an ad labeled “Stop Or My Grandmother Will Shoot,” in which Ivey produced a handgun from her purse to demonstrate her support for a bill that ended concealed-carry permit requirements.

Seemingly the only non-conservative included in the bit was Shri Thanedar, a Democrat and state representative from Michigan, who appeared in a cornball commercial featuring people demonstrating mind-bendingly bad acting. Kimmel declared Thanedar the winner of the fake Emmy for Outstanding Performance in a Political Ad, and then spoke with Thanedar, who appeared via remote video.

Kimmel noted that Thanedar, who’s running for Congress, won his primary. “How bad an actor was the guy you beat?” Kimmel asked. Thanedar said his opponent must not have been very talented, “because I have no acting skills.”
