‘Succession,’ 'Schitt's Creek,' 'Watchmen' top Emmy Awards: Full winners list

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards from the Staples Center in Los Angeles while nominees join the show remotely from their homes.

The 72nd Emmy Awards aired Sunday night and recognized the best in primetime TV, focusing on programs released between June 1, 2019, and May 31, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way the award show was presented this year. It was mostly virtual and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Staples Center in Los Angeles while nominees joined the show remotely from their homes. 

“Schitt's Creek,” the little Canadian show about a fish-out-of-water family, made history at Sunday's Emmy Awards with a comedy awards sweep, something even TV greats including “Frasier” and “Modern Family” failed to achieve.

Zendaya, 24, became the youngest lead drama actress winner for her role as a troubled teenager in “Euphoria."

“Succession,” a family power struggle over a media empire, was honored as best drama series, and creator Jesse Armstrong used the opportunity to offer “unthanks,” including to President Donald Trump for what Armstrong called his “crummy” handling of the pandemic.

“Succession” star Jeremy Strong won the drama actor trophy for his role as an aspiring heir.
