Emmy Awards 2020: The full list of winners


The 72nd Emmy Awards took place digitally for the first time, on Sunday September 20, without an audience due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The ceremony was hosted virtually by Jimmy Kimmel onstage at downtown L.A.’s Staples Center. 

Canadian sitcom Schitt’s Creek was the night’s big winner, as they took every comedy trophy, including lead actress, lead actor, best supporting actor and actress, best writing (episodic) and best direction, and best overall comedy.
Best actor in a drama went to Succession star Jeremy Strong, while Euphoria star Zendaya became the youngest winner in the drama actress category at age 24, topping Jodie Comer, who was 26 when she won last year for Killing Eve.
Regina King and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II took home acting awards for Outstanding Lead Actress and Outstanding Supporting Actor, respectively. Uzo Aduba won supporting actress for her work on Mrs. America and Mark Ruffalo took home lead actor for HBO’s I Know This Much Is True.
