What the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards lacked in normalcy, it made up for with history. The coronavirus pandemic forced ‘adjustments’ including winners accepting their awards remotely. And, in the case of one show, accepting a lot. It was a record setting night for “Schitt’s Creek” which took home Best Actress and Actor, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress. As well as, Best Comedy Series. In fact, the show swept all 7 Comedy categories. Other awards of the night included “Succession” winning best drama with Jeremy Strong winning Best Actor. Zendaya became the youngest ever Best Actress winner for her performance in “Euphoria.” “Watchmen” was awarded Best Limited Series with Regina King and Yahya Adbul-Mateen the second winning in their categories. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the awards in a mostly vacant Staples Center.
