jimmy kimmel 2020 emmy awards

Though the past year of Emmy-eligible television started out fairly stereotypically, 2020 turned the entire world upside down, and the entertainment industry's topsy-turviness is certainly being felt as we enter the Fall TV season. But as the old adage goes, the show must go on, and in this case it's the show that celebrates all the others shows, the 72nd annual Emmy Awards.

This year's remote ceremony is obviously like no other, with many celebs chiming in from home via webcam. But what hasn't changed is the general celebration of all things television, with frequent host Jimmy Kimmel there to lead the way through all the categories and nominees, from first-timers like Disney+'s The Mandalorian and HBO's Watchmen to seasoned vets like This Is Us and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Below you can find all the winners from the 2020 Emmy Awards, and it will be updated throughout the night so be sure to keep checking back in.

It ended up being a big night for some major TV shows like Watchmen, Succession, and Schitt's Creek and there were some one-off surprises as well. Here's hoping Hollywood turns things around and gets back to normal going into 2021, so that the 73rd annual Emmy Awards can return to its normal stage show, assuming that's what audiences even want. In the meantime, stay tuned to CinemaBlend for more updates on all your favorite shows and more and be sure to tune in for all the most awkward moments.

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
