Emily Heller, head writer for Barry on HBO, made quite the impact prior to the Emmys red carpet. The stand-up and comedy writer tweeted that she wanted the internet’s help in creating the best look for the big event, and posted a few pictures in a greenscreen bodysuit, perfect for the craziest submissions.
HI EVERYONE. I won't have time to walk the press line at the #Emmys this year, so I'm leaving my red carpet look up to you. Would you like to say you dressed an awards show nominee?

The people did not disappoint. Some dressed her up in a ballgown to be envious of, but more likely, people replied with something like a pizza dress or a transformers outfit. Needless to say, the looks would have killed if she made it to the red carpet.

Some thought even more outside the box, dressing Emily up like Robin (of Batman fame) or even avocado! Surely her Barry co-writer and star actor, Bill Hader, would be proud of such a hilarious bit. After all, she was truly something to guac at…
