The 2020 Emmy Awards are going down now and the historic event has been full of surprises. For the first time in its 72-year history, the annual event is being produced without an audience and so far, the virtual presentation is going pretty well.

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the mostly virtual event has featured a few of our faves (like Tracee Ellis Ross, Zendaya and Anthony Anderson) as presenters in the flesh, while other famous faces like Issa Rae and Kerry Washington have appeared from remote locations.
