Emmys 2020: every single winner from this year’s virtual awards ceremony

The 2020 Emmy Awards wasn’t what it used to be. This year’s reimagined show, in its 72nd year hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, was one that made history. The show was none like the other. With stars talking to their webcams in their at-home red carpet bests to accept their awards - 2020 in a nutshell. In the backdrop of the award show, we can see a screen of webcam views of celebrities on their couches almost like a massive Zoom conference call - what a nightmare!


The viewers and stars themselves watched the show from the comfort of their homes. The production crew as well as the celebs all geared up in face-protection masks for obvious reasons. We watched Jennifer Aniston and Jimmy Kimmel on stage with Kimmel setting things on fire (a dig at 2020 perhaps) and Jason Bateman sitting amongst cardboard cutouts of fellow stars in the audience - very Black Mirror-esque.


From Schitt’s Creek doing a quick sweep of the awards to Zendaya’s first-ever Emmy, here are all the nominees and winners from this year’s Emmy Awards…
