Complete list of winners from 72nd “PandEmmys”

(Schitt’s Creek, Watchmen and Diversity won at last night’s Emmy Awards)

Last night, in front of a mostly empty Staples Center, The Television Academy celebrated the 72nd Emmy Awards – or since we are in a pandemic “The PandEmmys” – recognizing excellence in primetime programming and individual achievement for the 2019-2020 television season.

Unlike any broadcast preceding it, the virtual awards were hosted Jimmy Kimmel, featured awards in 23 Emmy categories, plus the Governors Award, presented by top talent from some of television’s most acclaimed programs.

Presenters and surprise guests included Anthony Anderson, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Ty Burrell, LaVerne Cox, America Ferrera, Morgan Freeman, Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, Ken Jeong, Mindy Kaling, Tatiana
Maslany, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Bob Newhart, D-Nice, Randall Park, Issa Rae, RuPaul, Jason Sudeikis, Gabrielle Union, Lena Waithe, J.J. Watt and Oprah Winfrey.

In the comedy categories, if you weren’t a part of POP TV’s Schitt’s Creek, you were well, up sh*t’s creek. The sitcom, which follows the formerly wealthy Rose family who are forced to relocate to Schitt’s Creek, a small town they once purchased as a joke, was awarded a record seven Emmys, sweeping the categories. It all began with the first trophy going to Catherine O’Hara for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

The comedy then went on to win: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Eugene Levy), Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (Dan Levy) and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (Annie Murphy), as well as Outstanding Comedy Series.

The show’s previous seasons hadn’t won an Emmy, although it received several nominations. The series has won 18 Canadian Screen Awards and was the first Canadian comedy series to be nominated for a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Comedy Series.

Diversity Wins Last Night

The 2020 Emmy Awards also saw a number of nonwhite acting winners, with Watchmen star Regina King’s fourth Emmy win. One of the pleasant surprised of the night was seeing Euphoria star Zendaya win as well.

Out of the 19 performer categories — including the guest, short form and voice-over categories from last week’s Creative Arts Emmys — 10 went to Black actors. In addition to King and Zendaya, other winners included Mrs. America’s Uzo Aduba, King’s co-star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Saturday Night Live guests Maya Rudolph (a double winner for voice acting on Netflix’s Big Mouth) and Eddie Murphy, and two of the stars from Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn, Laurence Fishburne and Jasmine Cephas Jones.

Singer-songwriter and GRAMMY-winning artist H.E.R. made her Emmy® debut with a special “In Memoriam” performance.
