The 2020 Emmys are finally done! Even though it was unlike any other award ceremony we had ever seen before, it’s still better than not having one in the first place. Moreover, the Television Academy made sure that the Emmys were delivered safely to each and every one of the winners. So, who are the 2020 Emmys winners? We compiled a list for your ease.

Before we dive into the list, let’s look at the biggest winners of the 2020 Emmys. Schitt’s Creek, Watchmen, and Succession stood out as the most outstanding TV shows of the night. In fact, Schitt’s Creek broke the record of winning the most Emmys in a single season for a comedy show – nine.

The other big winner of the night was HBO’s Succession. The show bagged many important Emmys, including best drama series, best actor for Jeremy Strong, best writing, and best directing during the Emmys 2020. However, Succession’s British creator Jesse Armstrong said how sad he was for not being with his fellow cast and crew members, saying:

“This is such a very nice moment, but it’s sad not to be with the cast and crew to share it.”

HBO also had more winners in the 2020 Emmys with it’s hit limited series Watchmen. It won awards for the best limited-series, as well as Emmys for its stars Regina King and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. So, without any further wait, here’s the complete list of nominees and winners of the 2020 Emmys.

A special night for Schitt’s Creek

It was an especially emotional win for the cast and crew. This is because the Canadian series broadcasted its 6th and final season this year, ending the series on a high with it’s highly rated finale and by bagging nine Emmys in 2020. As the show’s creator Dan Levy said after winning the Emmy for the best comedy series:

“Our show, at its core, is about the transformational effects of love and acceptance, and that is something we need more of now than we’ve ever needed before.”

Eugene Levy also added praises for his son, saying:

“I want to thank this young man who took our fish-out-of-water story and transformed it into a story of inclusivity, a castigation of homophobia, and a declaration of the power of love, so thank you Daniel.”

Other than Schitt’s Creek, Zendaya also sent out waves by becoming the youngest ever winner of an Emmy for her performance in Euphoria.

The 2020 Emmys were different and lowkey

Other than these special wins, the 2020 Emmys were especially different than all the ones previously held. This is because this was the first award ceremony held virtually without an audience. Most of the stars joked “This is freakin’ weird!” as they received their Emmys in the comfort of their own homes. Moreover, Jimmy Kimmel hosted the award in front of an empty stadium. And Kimmel acknowledged the awkwardness of it, by first using audience and crowd reaction from yesteryear’s Emmys. Here’s his opening monologue:

When it came to distributing the award itself, the winners were given the Emmys in their very own homes. But, to make sure the name of the winners never got leaked, there was a Television Academy representative at each nominee’s home wearing a hazmat suit. If the nominee failed to win, they would just leave without giving them the trophy (which seems kind of rude).
