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.

And the winner is ... Catherine O'Hara!

The actress, 66, took home the 2020 Emmy Award for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for her performance as the beloved Moira Rose in Schitt's Creek during Sunday's virtual ceremony.

O'Hara accepted the award with her costars at a viewing party in Toronto, Canada.

"Thank you members of the Television Academy for nominating me alongside these very cool women," she began. "I will forever be grateful to Eugene and Daniel Levy for the opportunity to play a woman of a certain age, my age, who gets to fully be herself."

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.
