What the Emmys Learned From Previous Makeovers (Including Rod Serling's 1965 Disaster)

  What the Emmys Learned From Previous Makeovers (Including Rod Serling's 1965 Disaster) A version of this story on Emmys show makeovers first appeared in the Emmy Hot List issue of TheWrap's Emmy magazine. We don't yet know exactly what this year's Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will look like, but we know it will be a dramatic change from every previous Emmy show. With no live audience, the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted show will put a new, COVID-mandated spin on the awards-show template. Already, the show's producers have reached out to high-profile nominees and offered help with wardrobe, lighting and other ways to make everybody look fabulous from wherever they'll be during the show.

The 2020 Emmys ceremony was a virtual affair last night. To keep to social distancing orders, presenters and The Pose star was nominated in the Outstanding Best Actor in a Drama Series category and wore a “Tonight was absolutely incredible,” Porter wrote on his Instagram account.

Billy Porter is still using fashion to make a statement this awards season, even without photographers and a red carpet amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The outstanding lead actor in a drama series nominee — famous for wearing jaw-dropping looks like a velvet Christian Siriano tuxedo ball gown and a Baja East blue crystal jumpsuit to everything from the Oscars to the Grammys — did not disappoint tonight at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted remotely by Jimmy Kimmel and streamed live on the Television Academy's website.

Why This Year's Emmys Ratings May Not Decline as Much as You'd Think

  Why This Year's Emmys Ratings May Not Decline as Much as You'd Think Jimmy Kimmel can do a lot of things, but when it comes to savings the virtual Emmys from record ratings lows, even he can only do so much. The 72nd annual Emmy Awards, also known as the first (and hopefully not annual) virtual Emmy Awards, air Sunday on ABC. By Monday, we'll likely have new record-low TV ratings for the Emmys — though the Nielsen numbers may not drop as much as you would think. Last year, Fox's turn with the Emmys drew 6.9 million total viewers, which was down 32% from 2018 (10.2 million total viewers) to a new record low. Those 2019 Emmys, which were host-less and also on a Sunday, declined 33% in ratings among adults 18-49, falling from a 2.4 to a 1.6.

"It took me a minute to process all of the conflicting thoughts I had about yesterday. A record number of Black actors received #Emmy nominations this year, myself included. For that, I am grateful," he wrote.

Reflecting on the years of hard work it took him to receive recognition for his work, the actor added, "I have been doing this for a long, long time...If you had told me at 20 that I would win my first Emmy at 50…that I would win at all would have been inconceivable."
