Emmy Winners 2020: The Full List of Awards

“Schitt’s Creek” broke a record with seven Primetime awards and nine Emmys in total in the comedy categories, and “Succession” took home five awards, including best drama series. Here are other notable moments from the night.

  • Catherine O’Hara won her first acting Emmy for her role as Moira Rose on “Schitt’s Creek.”

  • Tyler Perry accepted the Governors Award, which recognizes “extraordinary” or “cumulative” accomplishment, and gave a heartfelt speech that tied a story about his grandmother to the experiences of Black Americans.

  • Zendaya made history by becoming the youngest winner for best lead actress in a drama for her role in “Euphoria.”

  • Several winners implored viewers to vote. Others made statements about racial justice during speeches and through their wardrobe.

  • Jimmy Kimmel hosted from a nearly empty Staples Center while nominees tuned in from around the world. Read his opening monologue.

  • An ad featuring Billy Porter, Lin-Manuel Miranda and others called on Hollywood to become more inclusive. “We are more than a splash of color on your white canvas,” Porter said.
