So…Is Watchmen Seriously Not Getting A Second Season?

  So…Is Watchmen Seriously Not Getting A Second Season? As the annual Emmy Awards celebrate the best in the business, a number of television shows are getting the praise that they deserve. Among them is the HBO/Sky Atlantic original show Watchmen, a limited series exploring the science fiction world of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Late last year, the superhero drama took the world by storm during its 9-episode story arc, ending in a stunning finale that left audiences begging for more. Given its obvious industry success, could a second chapter be in Watchmen‘s future?

“My husband Bill and our son also did test positive, but we’re all doing well and taking care of each other so I’m going to get back to doing that,” she said.

After 45 years of nothing-but-funny and a six-year run down “Schitt’s Creek,” Catherine O’Hara has an acting Emmy.

O’Hara won the Emmy Award for best actress in a TV comedy for her role as Rose family matriarch Moira on “Schitt’s Creek” on Sunday night.

Jennifer Aniston presented the award, the first handed out at Sunday night’s ceremony, from Staples Center, and O’Hara accepted in a remote restaurant-like pavilion with the “Schitt’s Creek” cast in face masks and formalwear around her.

A man in a black tie hazard suit handed her the trophy.

“May you have as much joy being holed up in a room or two with your dear family as I have with my dear Roses here,” an emotional O’Hara said.

The win puts O’Hara in the elite company that her peers and co-stars have already held her in for decades.

Past winners of the award include Lucille Ball, Mary Tyler Moore, Candice Bergen and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

O’Hara had one previous Emmy for writing on “SCTV” in 1982 in the earlier days of years of collaboration with her “Schitt’s Creek” co-star Eugene Levy.

It looked like any awards show as Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage at the Staples Center in a tuxedo and started cracking jokes to laughter from famous audience members.

Watchmen takes the limited series Emmy after wins for Regina King and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

  Watchmen takes the limited series Emmy after wins for Regina King and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Who watches the Watchmen? Emmy voters, clearly. HBO's Watchmen on Sunday took home the award for Outstanding Limited Series at the Emmys, beating out shows including Mrs. America and Little Fires Everywhere. The superhero series, which is adapted from the graphic novel, was one of the most critically acclaimed shows of 2019, and it received the most nominations of any series at this year's Emmys with 26. In an acceptance speech for Outstanding Limited Series, Watchmen creator Damon Lindelof dedicated the award to the victims of the Tulsa race massacre, which was depicted in the series.

But it was anything but typical. While Kimmel was real as he opened the 72nd Emmy Awards on Sunday night, the audience was clearly phony, inserted from past footage.

“Welcome to the pandemmies!” Kimmel said to open his monologue. “You can’t have a virus without a host.”

Kimmel played it straight until halfway through the opening bit, when he admitted he was nearly alone and the telecast showed the sea of empty seats.

Nominees were represented by cardboard cutouts, and by Jason Bateman of “Ozark” pretending to be one.

Kimmel then walked into a room where he was surrounded by dozens of nominees shown on video feeds from their homes, hotel rooms and other remote locations. “I feel like I'm in a Best Buy,” he joked.

It’s eerily empty both outside and inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles during the run-up to an Emmy Awards unlike any other.

At a moment when the red carpet would normally be thronged with black-tie stars, media and fans, spaced-out security and staff and a handful of show contributors were among the only people outside on Sunday afternoon.

Tracee Ellis Ross, nominated for best actress in a comedy series for “black-ish,” leaned out of an arriving SUV to take a coronavirus test before entering to take part in the show.

Many other nominees are expected to take part from their homes, hotels and other remote locations.

Little else has been revealed about the 72nd Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. The show starts at 5 p.m. Pacific/8 Eastern on ABC.
