2020 Emmy Awards: ‘Schitt’s Creek,’ ‘Watchmen,’ and ‘Succession’ Win Big on TV’s Most Celebrated Night

Jimmy Kimmel-hosted award show aired live on Sunday from Los Angeles

September 21, 2020

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards went off without a hitch Sunday night, despite the fact the auditorium was empty due to pandemic concerns and Stern Show veterans Jimmy Kimmel and Jennifer Aniston literally started a trash fire halfway through the show.

The evening’s biggest winners were the HBO dramas “Succession” and “Watchmen” (with four awards each) and Pop TV’s Canadian series “Schitt’s Creek,” which swept the comedy categories, presumably to recent Stern Show guest Seth Rogen’s delight. Other winners included “Euphoria’s” Zendaya, “Ozark’s” Julie Garner, late-night host John Oliver, Governors Award-winner Tyler Perry, and even Stern Show executive producer Gary Dell’Abate, who Kimmel name dropped at the very end of the broadcast.
