Selfie Sticks Banned at the Emmys

Celebrities who bring them will have to turn them over to security.

Selfies from afar are not happening this year at the Emmys. 

Selfie sticks are not allowed on the red carpet, in the Microsoft Theater or at the post-show Governors Ball, according to posted notices. 

The sticks, which hold cameras for a farther-away photo, are a "safety concern," according to the notices. 

"Should you bring them, you will be asked to turn them over to security or return them to your vehicle."
