The First Major Hollywood Awards Show To Go Virtual, The (Pand)-Emmy's Were Peak 2020!
Schitt's Creek, Succession and Watchmen take home the glory at the 72nd Emmy Awards! The last thing people will remember about the 2020 Emmy Awards is not who won - Zendaya 24, became the youngest ever winner of best drama actress for her performance in Euphoria, Schitt's Creek made history by sweeping all the comedy categories and HBO won pretty much everything! The 72nd Annual Emmy ceremony itself will be the what sticks in people's minds as it was the first major awards ceremony in Hollywood to go virtual. Here are our  takeaways from last night's ceremony
  • The first major awards ceremony go virtual, it was a very strange sight to see Jimmy Kimmel addressing an empty auditorium!

  • You've got to feel for the production team at this years Emmy's who managed camera feeds relayed from 130 nominees at home or elsewhere in 20 cities across 10 countries

  • In this the strangest of years viewers were treated to a (or at least half of one)  'Friends' reunion. Jennifer Aniston who was scheduled to appear at the ceremony was chatting with Jimmy Kimmel when Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow wandered into the shot and joked about how the three ladies had been living together as roommates since 1994.

  • Zendaya made history when she became only the second African American and the youngest ever woman to win Best Actress at the Emmy's.

  • The usual post show analysis of the best fashions from the Awards Ceremony was limited because of the virtual nature of the event, but the winner of the most outrageous fashion choice was.. Hazmat Suits with some trophy winners (and losers - we see you Ramy Youssef) being presented their trophies by people clad in hazmat suits.
