Television ’ s biggest night always brings out some of the industry’ s biggest names – and The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards were hosted from an empty Staples Centre in Los Angeles, with Some stars did appear with Kimmel – such as Jennifer Aniston – to announce the nominees for a category

Jimmy Kimmel is the host of the event as he kicked off the show without an audience and instead canned audio and video from prior Emmy shows.

The 52-year-old then revealed that there was not actually an audience in attendance and that he was all alone as he poked fun at President Trump's recent Nevada rally: 'Of course I'm here all alone. Of course we don't have an audience. This isn't a MAGA rally, it's The Emmy's.'

This year's Emmys honoring the best in television has already been radically different as producers scrambled to create Hollywood's first major pandemic-era awards show.

The coronavirus has turned Tinseltown upside down, bringing productions to a halt even as stay-at-home orders around the world send binge-watching through the roof.

Late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel hosts the 72nd Emmys live on Sunday from an empty theater in Los Angeles with winners beaming in from the safety of their homes due to Covid-19.

Adding to the unpredictability on a night of firsts, 130-odd nominees who were sent cameras to hook up in their own living rooms have been encouraged to get creative with their speeches.

There will be no red carpet and no star-studded audience. A-listers are invited to trade gowns and tuxedos for pajamas.

'Ratings have been flagging for award shows for years... This is, if nothing else, an opportunity to mix things up, to do an award ceremony in a way unlike any other that's been done,' said IndieWire TV awards editor Libby Hill.

Emmys 2020: Schitt's Creek wins for comedy series, completes historic sweep

  Emmys 2020: Schitt's Creek wins for comedy series, completes historic sweep Pour yourself a glass of Moira rose: Pop's Schitt's Creek won the comedy series Emmy at the 72nd Annual Primetime Awards. With the win, the show swept all of the major comedy categories at this year's Emmys. Stars Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Catherine O'Hara, and Annie Murphy all won for acting in the show, while Daniel also won for writing and directing, sharing the latter with Andrew Cividino.

Stars Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Catherine O'Hara, and Annie Murphy all won for acting in the show, while Daniel also won for writing and directing, sharing the latter with Andrew Cividino.

'Even if Sunday night is a complete disaster, it's at least going to be an interesting disaster. And that's really all you ask for in 2020.'

Capturing this year's somewhat anarchic zeitgeist, Watchmen leads the charge with a whopping 26 nominations, primarily in the limited series categories.

The eerily prescient comic book adaptation that debuted last October confronts historic US racism, police violence and even mask-wearing. It also wowed critics and audiences alike.

Watchmen speaks so specifically in so many unprecedented ways to the moment in which we're living right now,' said Hill.

'I think people will probably get pretty tired of hearing Watchmen's name getting called... it's as much of a lock as we have right now.'

With HBO's record-breaking Emmys juggernaut Game of Thrones having finally mounted a dragon and soared off to Westeros, the awards in the drama series categories promise to be more fiercely contested this year.

'It's a relief for HBO that they have Succession hitting at the right time,' said Deadline awards columnist Pete Hammond.

The critically adored show about a powerful family's back-stabbing battle for control of a dynastic media empire won a writing Emmy in its first season, and has amassed 18 nominations this time.

But it is tied with Ozark, a dark money-laundering tale set in the American heartland from Netflix, which despite landing a record 160 nominations this year is still desperate to win its first major series Emmy.

Emmy winners highlight push for social justice

  Emmy winners highlight push for social justice LOS ANGELES (AP) — Regina King and Uzo Aduba used the come-as-you-are fashion edict for Sunday's virtual Emmy Awards to highlight the national struggle for social justice. Both Black actresses wore T-shirts featuring Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old EMT from Louisville, Kentucky, who was shot and killed by police in March. King’s T-shirt featured Taylor’s face. “The cops still haven’t been held accountable,” King said in a Zoom session with media. “She represents just decades, hundreds of years of violence against Black bodies.

Lurking in the background are British royals saga The Crown and Star Wars tale The Mandalorian, which boasts lavish Thrones-esque production values and has already scooped five Emmys in technical categories this week for newcomer Disney+.

Comedy this year appears to be a toss-up between previous serial winner The Marvelous Mrs Maisel- Amazon's quirky tale of a 1950s housewife who becomes a standup comic - and Schitt's Creek.

The latter, a Canadian comedy about a privileged family forced to live in a rundown motel, failed to earn a single nomination in its first four years, but became a sleeper hit after airing on Netflix and signed off with a heartwarming final season.

Aside from the awards themselves, the night will honor the career achievement of Tyler Perry.

The African-American entertainment mogul has championed greater diversity in Hollywood, and this year paid funeral costs for black victims of police violence including George Floyd.

Another record low in viewership for 'Pandemmys' .
NEW YORK (AP) — The novelty of television stars getting Emmy Awards delivered to their homes wasn't enough to keep the annual show from slipping further in popularity. The Nielsen company said 6.1 million people watched the Emmys on Sunday night, down from 6.9 million in 2019 and the third straight year of record low viewership. The Emmys faced competition from both NFL football and the NBA Western Conference finals. The coronavirus pandemic eliminated any chance fans had of seeing stars on a red carpet, although host Jimmy Kimmel gamely tried to make do in a mostly empty auditorium with actors accepting awards remotely.
