The best bits from last night’s Emmy’s and the full list of winners

While last night’s Emmy Awards show might have been a bit different from previous years, lacking in glitz and glamour with acceptance speeches given virtually and a dress code that was a bit more on the casual side, it was certainly one to remember.

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who expertly delivered hilarious bits throughout the night. One of our favourites included a mini Friends reunion with Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow. 

Jimmy video called Jennifer to make sure she got home okay, in time for her category to be announced, when her Friends co-stars joined her on the screen. When a confused Jimmy asked what they were all doing in Jennifer’s house, they replied, “We’ve been roommates since 1994 Jimmy.” Of course!

Since our beloved celebs weren’t able to attend the awards show in person, instead the production team sent camera crews to more than 130 locations around the world, to make sure nominees and winners were still being honoured and seen in one way or another.

One show in particular, seemed to win big, picking up awards left, right and centre. Schitt’s Creek won a total of seven awards last night, including Outstanding Comedy Series, and all four acting categories, with Eugene Levy winning Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Catherine O’Hara winning Lead Actress, Dan Levy taking home Best Supporting Actor and Annie Murphy winning Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

The elated cast and crew were able to enjoy their celebrations together at a socially distanced viewing party in Canada, where they delivered their virtual acceptance speeches.

Another huge win of the night was for Lead Actress in a Drama Series which was won by Zendaya, for her role as Rue in Euphoria. The 24-year-old actress made history, becoming the youngest person to ever win that category and only the second black woman to win.

Sadly our very own Paul Mescal lost out to Mark Ruffalo for Lead Actor in a Limited Series. The Irish actor received his very first Emmy nod for his role as Connell Waldron in the BBC’s adaptation of Sally Ronney’s Normal People. Better luck next time Paul!
