Comments

Despite taking place with an all-new virtual format, the Emmys went off mostly without a hitch on Sunday, seeing big awards success for Watchmen, Succession, and Schitt's Creek.

The 2020 awards saw Zendaya's first Emmy win for best lead actress in Euphoria, as well as a win for Mark Ruffalo, taking out the best lead actor in a limited series category for his role in I Know This Much Is True.

Watchmen's Regina King unsurprisingly won best lead actress in a limited series, with Watchmen (GameSpot's number 1 show of 2019) also winning awards for best limited series, best writing for a limited series for Damon Lindelof and Cord Jefferson, as well as Yahya Abdul-Mateen II taking out best supporting actor in a limited series.

On the comedy side of the awards night, Schitt's Creek dominated, taking out every award in the entire category including wins for each of its main cast members.

Here is the full list of winners. To brush up on everyone who was nominated for the various categories, check out our list here.
