TV series “Schitt’s Creek” and “Succession” are the biggest winners of this year’s awards
The TV series “Schitt’s Creek” and “Succession” are the biggest winners of this year’s Emmy Awards, held online for the coronavirus pandemic. Unlike the previous ones, this year the red carpet and all the glamor that normally accompanies this manifestation were missing.
Canadian “Schitt’s Creek” won nine awards, breaking the record in the number of Emmys for comedy. The series has been shown since 2015, and this year the sixth and final season was broadcast.
The American satirical comedy “Succession” was awarded the main prize, for best drama series, and Emia was also awarded to lead actor Jeremy Strong. The HBO-produced series also won awards for best screenplay and direction.
Another HBO series, “Watchmen,” won an Emmy for Best Mini-Series. It is a film adaptation of the legendary graphic novel by Alan Moore, which deals with racism in America.
The stars of the series Regins King and Yahya Abdul Matin II also received the Emmy. Zendaya became the youngest winner of the award for best actress in a drama for her role in “Euphoria”.
The host of the ceremony at the empty Staples Center in Los Angeles was comedian Jimmy Kimmel, who was joined by several guest presenters, while most of the winners gave speeches from home.
