It’s crazy zoom audio, surprisingly technical issues and historic successes – especially for Canadian comedy Shits Creek – Sunday at the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards.
Despite the organizers having to send nearly 130 camera kits to nominees worldwide to accommodate the stars at home due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, everything came together despite calls and anticipation of a general disaster.
Here are some highlights from the night of upsets, historic achievements and big statements.
“Hello and welcome to Pond-Emmys” host Jimmy Kimmel announced the launch of the show. The Late-Night Show host’s opening monologue is an open acknowledgment of both the unfamiliarity and futility of participating in an awards show during an epidemic.
At first, the audience looked like a typical awards show, with the audience’s pans showing smiling and smiling stars. The desolate Staples Center in Los Angeles reveals vacant seats, until Kimmel admits he is mostly alone.
“Alone,” Kimmel joked. “Like Prom Night.”
He mentioned the strange reason why the Television Academy chose to continue the program. He said going during the epidemic was “useless and unnecessary”, but what other year would it be different?
“It doesn’t matter what happens tonight,” Kimmel said. “It’s not going to stop COVID. It’s not going to put out the fires, but it’s fun. We need fun right now. My God, do we need fun?”
Top honors for Shits Creek
After the monologue, the show began with the Comedy Awards. Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy topped the Emmys as Best Comedian and Actor, and this is just the beginning for the much-loved, produced ones in Canada Shits Creek.
The show won comedy awards and received top honors in all seven categories. Following the success of O’Hara and Levy, Annie Murphy was named Emmy Best Supporting Actress, and Daniel Levy was named Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Comedy Writer and Best Director of a Comedy Series, along with Andrew Cividin.
