This Sunday the Emmy Awards are delivered remotely. Jimmy Kimmel conducts, the showman who is sure this will be the least tuned ceremony in its history

Sunday, September 20, 2020, promises to be a day like no other in the entertainment industry, as the Covid-19 pandemic forces the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (ATAS) to develop different Emmy awards. The most prestigious award for small screen productions will be held remotely to prevent the spread of the pandemic, which has already killed nearly 200,000 people at the end of this article.

In an interview with USA Today Jimmy Kimmel in charge of presenting the gala, he hopes that the 2020 Emmy Awards are not boring, but he knows that problems could occur when dealing with a show like never before, where only he will be in front of the camera in the Staples Center in Los Angeles (California); while the nominees wait from their homes for the news of whether they won the award or not.

The favorites

“Watchmen” (HBO), a 9-episode miniseries, is the production with the most chances to win this 2020 at the Emmy (26 nominations). Among the statuettes that the series would have secured according to critics are Best Leading Actress in a Miniseries for Regina King, Best Script for a Limited Series for Damon Lindelof and Cord Jefferson, and Best Limited Series.

What about the regular extension series? Here the victory could also go to HBO, which has a strong contender in “Succession”, nominated not only for Best Drama Series, but for Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Brian Cox, Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Sarah Snook Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Kieran Culkin, Nicholas Braun, and Matthew Macfadyen; etc.

The Best Drama Series category could also be surprising, as competing series include AMC’s “Better Call Saul” (multiple nominees, never a winner), as well as Disney +’s “The Mandalorian,” which surprised the world with the existence of Baby Yoda.

On the comic series side, the battle seems to be between “The Good Place” (NBC / Netflix) and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (Amazon Prime Video). It could also be the year of “Schitt’s Creek” (Pop).
