2020 Emmy Awards: Full list of winners from 1st-ever virtual ceremony

For the first time in history, the Emmy Awards went live and virtual.

Canadian standout comedy (and fan favourite) Schitt’s Creekswept the comedy categories, leaving other shows in the dust.

The ambitious 72nd Emmy Awards ceremony was hosted virtually by return emcee Jimmy Kimmel onstage at downtown L.A.’s Staples Center, central command for camera feeds relayed from 130 nominees socially distanced at home or elsewhere in 10 countries and 20 cities.

HBO’s limited series Watchmen was the leading nominee going into the show, and its star Regina King won her fourth Emmy for lead actress. Schitt’s Creek took every comedy trophy, including lead actress, lead actor, best supporting actor and actress, best writing (episodic) and best direction, and best overall comedy.

It was the first time in Emmy history that a Canadian show has won that many awards — consecutively and cumulatively. For the first hour of the broadcast, Schitt’s Creek took every trophy.

Watchmen won best limited series, and series star Yahya Abdul-Mateen won best supporting actor for his work on the show.

Best actor in a drama went to Succession star Jeremy Strong, while Euphoria star Zendaya became the youngest winner in the drama actress category at age 24 (topping Jodie Comer, who was 26 when she won last year for Killing Eve).

Arguably the biggest award of the night, best drama, went to HBO’s Succession.
