The Emmy Awards rolled around again on Sunday – but with a major difference. Gone was the glitz and glamour of the red carpet, and for the first time ever, winners were announced in a virtual show, with Jimmy Kimmel remotely hosting proceedings from inside the Staples Centre.

It was a big night for Schitt's Creek, which won nine prizes, breaking the Emmys' record for the most wins in a single season for a comedy. Succession, meanwhile, took home the night's top prize, winning Best Drama Series, as well as Best Actor for Jeremy Strong.

So what were the standout moments of the night? HELLO! takes a closer look

Jennifer Aniston tackles a fire

Jennifer Aniston was one of the stars who appeared in person alongside Jimmy on the night. Tasked with being the evening’s opening presenter, she patiently waited as the host sanitised the first award of the night – which went to Catherine O'Hara for her performance in Schitt's Creek. Then, just to be safe, Jimmy decided to throw the envelope in a bin and set it alight.

Jennifer was on hand with a fire extinguisher to put out the persistent blaze, and the pair continued to host unscathed! Jimmy then urged Jennifer to head home before her own category (best actress in a drama series) was announced.

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 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.
