There May Not Have Been a Red Carpet, but the 2020 Emmys Stayed Home in Style

There May Not Have Been a Red Carpet, but the 2020 Emmys Stayed Home in Style

Plunging necklines. Shimmering sequins. Tailored tuxes. They may not have made their way onto a red carpet this year, but there were nevertheless plenty of each at the reimagined 72nd Annual Emmy Awards, where Hollywood showed us that one pandemic don’t stop no show.

The best moments from the very unusual 2020 Emmy Awards

The best moments from the very unusual 2020 Emmy Awards

We knew the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards were going to be different, with

celebrities basically Zooming into the show from all over the globe on Sunday. Telecast producers anticipated designer pajamas and outlandish at-home moments, and it’s fair to say their expectations were exceeded. It all puts The A.V. Club’s Emmys uniform of laundry-day knockarounds to shame.

Here are some of the best...

Schitt's Creek is the first TV series to sweep all 4 acting categories at the Emmys

Schitt's Creek is the first TV series to sweep all 4 acting categories at the Emmys

As Jimmy Kimmel repeatedly pointed out in the first hour of the 2020 Emmy Awards, tonight has been completely owned by Schitt’s Creek, with the Catherine O’Hara kicking off the ceremony by landing Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy, followed shortly by Dan Levy winning Outstanding Writing For A Comedy, Dan Levy and Andrew Cividino winning Outstanding Directing For A Comedy, Eugene Levy...

Here are the winners of the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards

Here are the winners of the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards

Green screens. Over 130 incoming live feeds. An alpaca, somehow. The 72nd Primtime Emmys were destined to be the strangest to date thanks to an unwieldy pandemic that rendered the entire event a remote affair. To their credit, ABC and the Television Academy have been prepared to embrace an impending mess since the initial planning stages. And after five nights of pre-taped Creative Arts...

Jimmy Kimmel opens the 2020 Emmy Awards with a Quibi joke and a shocking realization

Jimmy Kimmel opens the 2020 Emmy Awards with a Quibi joke and a shocking realization

The main message from ABC and host Jimmy Kimmel in the lead-up to tonight’s at-home, mid-pandemic Emmy Awards was “this is going to be weird.”

Kimmel said as much a few days ago while teasing his plans for the unavoidably unusual telecast, which he had said would involve him, alone, in the Staples Center with an alpaca named Isabelle while all of the nominees sit in front of one of 130 or so...

The Emmys accidentally give Jason Bateman an Emmy, quickly apologize and take it back

The Emmys accidentally give Jason Bateman an Emmy, quickly apologize and take it back

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards are a marathon, not a sprint—and the producers almost made it to the finish line without a hiccup. Almost.

The highest-profile awards will be handed out Sunday evening during

the Primetime Emmy Awards hosted by Jimmy Kimmel , but Nailed It! host Nicole Byer spent five nights hosting ceremonies for the technical, guest acting, hosting, and voice acting awards (or...

Watch Baby Yoda vibe to the Schitt’s Creek and Curb themes in this Emmys music medley

Happy Emmys weekend!

On Sunday , in what we can only assume will be a deeply strange ceremony, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will hand out their most high-profile awards of the year (though they’ve been doling out the Creative Arts Emmys all week; congrats to Emmy-winner Quibi , a phrase that will nestle comfortably against “Oscar-winner Suicide Squad” in our brains...

Are TV movie stars at a disadvantage when nominated for Emmys against limited series actors?

Are TV movie stars at a disadvantage when nominated for Emmys against limited series actors?

The hosts of The A.V. Club’s new podcast Push The Envelope have previously discussed the merits and complications of separating Primetime Emmy Awards categories by genre. But there is one subsection of TV where the Television Academy basically says anything goes: the limited series and movie categories.

In this Wild West subsection, comedies compete against dramas in all categories and TV...

Which actors will win, and which should win, at the 2020 Emmys?

Which actors will win, and which should win, at the 2020 Emmys?

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday, September 20, but instead of gathering at the Microsoft Theater or a similar venue, nominees will have to pick a Zoom background and film their reaction shots from the comfort of their own homes. Which, when you think about it, means they’ll be watching the ceremony in the same fashion we are (albeit with a much higher probability of...

Emmys producers tease 135 live feeds and an alpaca: It's "a logistical nightmare"

Emmys producers tease 135 live feeds and an alpaca: It's "a logistical nightmare"

When

Jimmy Kimmel signed on to host and executive produce the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards , he never imagined having to put the show together during a global pandemic. But after coming to peace with what has become our new normal these past few months, Kimmel and his fellow executive producers Ian Stewart and Reginald Hudlin made the decision to—rather than try and recreate the normal Emmys...

What shows will win, and which should win, at the 2020 Emmys

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will still take place on Sunday, September 20, and we can once again count on Jimmy Kimmel to host. The rest feels more up in the air than usual, as the ceremony will be attended virtually by nominees and presenters. Here are A.V. Club TV editor Danette Chavez’s predictions of the winners of the major series awards, as well as some last-minute stumping for ...

Do co-stars nominated for the same Emmy hurt or help each other’s chances of winning?

Do co-stars nominated for the same Emmy hurt or help each other’s chances of winning?

Rising tides raise all ships, or so goes the cliché. In Emmy terms, that means the more awards your show gets, the better it is for everyone who works on the show. But how does that translate when you’re going head-to-head with your costar? On this week’s episode of

Push The Envelope , our editor-in chief, Patrick Gomez; managing editor, Erik Adams; and TV editor, Danette Chavez discuss the...

Insecure’s Issa Rae on her character’s growth and bringing the show back to its roots

Insecure’s Issa Rae on her character’s growth and bringing the show back to its roots

This may not be Insecure’s first year in the Emmys spotlight, but 2020 is easily its biggest. With eight nominations total, an overdue Outstanding Comedy Series nod could not have come at a better time: As we noted in July, season four of the Issa Rae starrer rendered some of the most engaging television we’ve watched thus far, thanks, in large part, to a long-gestating friend break-up...

Watchmen director Stephen Williams on uncovering the series’ real American hero story

Watchmen director Stephen Williams on uncovering the series’ real American hero story

Given the track record for comic book adaptations, Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen series, an adaptation of the Alan Moore graphic novel, stood an equal chance of telling a ripping action-adventure story as it did ending up like so much space squid on a windshield. But with the help of producers like Stephen Williams and writers like Cord Jefferson, Lindelof was able to craft one of the boldest and...

What We Do In The Shadows’ Stefani Robinson thinks Jackie Daytona’s human disguise is pretty convincing, actually

What We Do In The Shadows’ Stefani Robinson thinks Jackie Daytona’s human disguise is pretty convincing, actually

Stefani Robinson has a bad case of what she’s been calling “pandemic brain”—so much so, she kind of forgot that FX was running an Emmys FYC campaign for What We Do In The Shadows. And so it was a surprise—first a shocking one, then a delightful one—when she got a phone call from her dad congratulating her on her Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series nomination for the Shadows season two...

D’Arcy Carden on her Good Place goodbye, unconventional Emmys plans, and Barry’s delay

D’Arcy Carden on her Good Place goodbye, unconventional Emmys plans, and Barry’s delay

D’Arcy Carden received her first Emmy nomination this summer—though it should’ve been her second. It’s difficult to watch “

Janet(s) ,” from the third season of Michael Schur’s phantasmagorical sitcom The Good Place, and argue otherwise: In that episode, she portrays not only afterlife assistant Janet and one of her impartial “Neutral Janet” counterparts, but also uncannily inhabits the roles...
