Like everything that has been happening in 2020, this year’s Emmys was also held in a never-been-done-before unprecedented manner. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and its social distancing requirements, the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards took place virtually with an empty audience and celebrity guests who were watching from home.

Jimmy Kimmel opened the ceremony at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, from where the Emmys were being filmed. The popular talk show host addressed the unusually empty hall by jokingly saying, “It’s great to finally see people again.” 

However, the “Pandemmys” taking place virtually wasn’t the only novel factor that was a part of this year’s primetime award’s ceremony – the long list of talented winners who won an award for the very first time ever was also definitely noteworthy!
