The 72nd Annual New Year's Day at staples theater in Los Angeles. The Emmy Awards ceremony was held in an empty hall. Due to the outbreak, the ceremony was held in the form of a video conference, with the audience, award nominees and guests not present in the hall.
The night's hosts Jennifer Aniston, Tracee Ellis Ross and Jimmy Kimmel appeared in the studio in keeping with social distancing rules. Host Jimmy Kimmel set fire to one of his awards envelopes for fear of a virus. Jennifer Aniston put out a fire on stage.
As usual, the glamorous red carpet ceremony has been replaced by a fun home atmosphere this year. Many of the winners were connected to the broadcast from their homes.
