Emmys 2020 Live: See the complete list of nominees for the virtual ceremony The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards set for Sunday This year’s fifth and final night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Watchmen has got the maximum nominations this year. It received a leading 26 nominations. The Amazon Prime Video’s comedy The Marvelous Mrs Maisel is the second most-nominated series with 20 nods, followed by Netflix’s Ozark with 18 nominations.This year, Emmy Awards are different courtesy coronavirus pandemic. The award ceremony is happening virtually. Jimmy Kimmel, who has earlier hosted the ceremony, will take the stage in the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles but this time the audience won’t consist of celebrities decked up in their best outfits. He will host the show in the presence of production staff and a few stars.
To avoid the drawbacks of a Zoom call, the showrunners have arranged for many movie-quality cameras, lights and microphones to capture live and spontaneous reactions from winners in their living rooms. Producers are monitoring 130 live feeds from about 20 cities, including Los Angeles, New York, London, Tel Aviv and Berlin.
Producers of the show, airing on ABC and Hulu Live, have encouraged the nominees to dress however they want — and to feel free to have their kids and family pets with them on the couch when the winners are announced.
This year, it’s still going to be TV industry’s biggest night out… but we’ll come to you! We are assembling a top notch team of technicians, producers and writers to work closely with Jimmy Kimmel and with you and your team, to make sure that we can film with you (and loved ones or whomever else you choose to be with) at your home, or another location of your choice.”
Speaking to BBC Breakfast earlier this week, Succession actor Brian Cox said nominees had been told Emmy producers would send staff to personally deliver trophies to the winners in their homes.
