Green screens. Over 130 live incoming streams. An alpaca, in a way. The 72nd Primtime Emmys were destined to be the weirdest yet thanks to a heavy pandemic that made the entire event a distant affair. To their credit, ABC and the Television Academy have been prepared to face an impending mess from the early stages of planning. And after five nights of pre-taped Creative Arts Emmys that still managed to end in a goof – in particular, briefly awarding the Guest Actor in Drama award. to the wrong guy… We were more than prepared to witness some train wrecks.

But all things considered, the night passed without too many incidents! In fact, we could have used a little more excitement. This poor alpaca got bandaged for nothing. Never mind. It’s probably a testament to the endless possibilities at your fingertips. If the Emmys can progress from a distance with just one small fire, then perhaps the future of tentpole awards ceremonies may promise a slight break with tradition. Imagine what a remote ceremony could look like next year with a little more time to plan.

Additionally, there were more interesting factors that were sure to make this year’s event one to watch, such as the lack of now-completed shoes. The iron Throne, Veep, and even upset comedic from last year Flea bag, leaving some highly coveted statuettes up for grabs. Ahead of Sunday’s big show, the Creative Arts Emmys showed their early love Course de dragsters de RuPaul, Guardians, Saturday Night Live, and Rick and Morty. Quibi even managed to win gold, pointing out that literally anything can happen.

The ceremony opened with sincere desperation as host Jimmy Kimmel took to the stage to note that having fun in these trying times is frivolous, but necessary amid a series of archived audience footage. ABC finally took the veil off to show that things were “just a little different!” This year with a room full of cardboard cutouts. And then after a series of mandatory social distancing jokes (which progressed throughout the evening, like there weren’t a ton of other things to ridicule), the real fun began.

Ruisseau Schitt swept the comedy categories and made a bit of history while Guardians also managed to win big. The dramatic sequel turned out to be a bit biting as Succession, euphoria, and Ozark share the lot. Succession would end up winning for the Outstanding Drama Series, but the Variation turned out to be one of the less predictable aspects of the night. Overall, HBO has won the most trophies, Netflix has managed to cause a bit of upheaval with Ozark, and a win for Zendaya served as a beautiful, bright spot for a quaint evening.
