Emmys 2020 full winners' list: Succession wins Outstanding Drama Series; Schitt's Creek dominates comedy category

The Emmy Awards honour the best of TV every year, but this time, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the ceremony is going virtual. Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is emceeing the ceremony remotely from a stage inside Los Angeles' Staples Centre.

Canadian sitcom Schitt's Creek, about a rich family left with nothing but a small town, swept the comedy categories, winning seven Emmys for its sixth and final season.

They were the first seven Emmys handed out at Sunday’s unusual ceremony, and the gleeful, tearful cast was jubilant in their face masks and formalwear as they claimed Emmy after Emmy together at a Canadian pavilion.

“Our show is about the transformational effects of love and acceptance, and that is something that we need more of now than we have ever needed before,” Dan Levy said as he took the seventh trophy.

HBO’s limited series Watchmen was declared Outstanding Limited Series, while its star and three-time Emmy winner Regina King was given the best actress award. It was the biggest triumph of a big night for Watchmen, the year’s most nominated show.

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). Jeremy Strong trumped onscreen father Brian Cox in the best actor in a drama series category for HBO's Succession.
