The moment an Australian journalist gets snubbed by Michael Douglas at the Emmys
During a live cross from the ceremony in Los Angeles, the 36-year-old journalist was left calling into the air after Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones strolled past her without stopping on the red carpet.
The encounter was broadcast live in Sydney on Channel Seven's The Morning Show.
In the footage Bartholemew calls out to the 74-year-old actor as the pair walked the red carpet: 'Catherine and Michael, can we have a chat for Australian TV?.
But the couple barely give the reporter a second glance as the pass, with Michael appearing to sip some water through a straw while 49-year-old Catherine chats to assistants, according to Mail Online.
As soon as Bartholemew realised she wouldn't get an interview, she laughed off the snub and sent her best wishes.
'Michael, congratulations on your nomination. Larry and Kylie send their best, all the way from The Morning Show,' she said.
This year, Michael was nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy Series for The Kominsky Method - the Emmy went to Bill Hader for Barry.
Back in the Morning Show studio in Australia, hosts Ryan Phelan and Kylie Gillies burst into laughter as Bartholemew regained her composure.
The pregnant newsreader, who was recently in England covering the Ashes series, flew to Los Angeles to report on the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards.
She wore a sparkling floor-length gown by Carla Zampatti for the special occasion.
Catherine and Michael are still very much in love after almost two decades of marriage with the Wall Street actor saying his wife still gives him butterflies.
Earlier in the evening the lovebirds shared a post to Instagram ahead of their star-studded date night.
'We're off to the Emmys,' she said. 'Well, I'm off with this fabulous nominee.'
'We going to the Emmys,' Douglas then piped in.
