The virtual 72nd Awards saw the media series, superhero drama and the fan-favourite comedy grab a number of gongs on the big night. HBO’s limited series Watchmen was the leading nominee going into the show, and its star Regina King won her fourth Emmy for lead actress. The nominees were listed in a previous EWN report found here.

Canadian sitcom “Schitt’s Creek” made history for its swan song season at the Emmy Awards Sunday night, nabbing all seven categories in which it was nominated, including best comedy series. In posts on Twitter, the CBC and Pop TV said it’s the first time a comedy or drama has swept all four acting categories, while the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences declared it’s the first time a series has won all seven comedy categories.

The theme of tackling racism

Of the more than 100 acting nominations in the drama, comedy, limited series and television movie categories this year, more than a third of them went to black actors — a new record Aside from the awards themselves, the night honoured the career achievement of Tyler Perry. The African-American entertainment mogul has championed greater diversity in Hollywood, and this year paid funeral costs for black victims of police violence including George Floyd.

The theme of tackling racism featured prominently throughout the night. Many stars in famously liberal Hollywood kept a wary eye on President Donald Trump’s re-election bid on how he expressed grief over the death of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
