Zendaya beat out an impressive field of actresses as she earned Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards.

The  24-year-old actress earned the big win for her work on HBO series Euphoria as Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), Olivia Colman (The Crown), Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Laura Linney (Ozark), and Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) were all nominated.

She was shocked by the win as she said: ‘I’m really, really nervous. Okay. Okay. Oh, gosh. I just want to say thank you to the TV academy, and all the other women, this is crazy. Thank you, HBO and A24 for your support. Thank you to my family and my team. To the incredible cast and crew of Euphoria.’ 

Earning it: Zendaya beat out an impressive field of actresses as she earned Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards

On the series she plays protagonist Rue Bennett as it centers around a group of high school students as they grapple with issues of drugs, sex, and violence.

She gave a shoutout to her character as she said: ‘I’m so lucky and I’m inspired by everything you do. And Sam, I appreciate you so much. I’m so grateful you trusted me with your story, Rue.’

Zendaya made sure to acknowledge the COVID-19 pandemic as well as unrest surrounding racial injustice in America as she said: ‘And I feel like this is a weird time to be celebrating, but there is hope in the young people out there. I know our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that, but there is hope in the young people. 

Beaming: She was shocked by the win as she said: ‘I’m really, really nervous. Okay. Okay. Oh, gosh. I just want to say thank you to the TV academy, and all the other women, this is crazy. Thank you, HBO and A24 for your support. Thank you to my family and my team. To the incredible cast and crew of Euphoria’

Support system: The young star was surrounded by her friends and family who couldn’t help but cheer her own during the duration of her speech

‘And to my peers out there doing the work in the streets, I see you, I admire you, and I thank you. And thank you so, so much. This is — whoa, okay. Thank you.’

The young star was surrounded by her friends and family who couldn’t help but cheer her own during the duration of her speech. 

Schitt’s Creek opened up the show in historic form as it swept the comedy categories en route to winning the first seven gongs of the night.

It all culminated when the Pop TV sitcom took home Outstanding Comedy Series as it was the first time the comedy categories have been swept since Modern Family in 2014. 

The series beat out Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dead to Me ,The Good Place, Insecure, The Kominsky Method, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and What We Do in the Shadows.

Wow factor: Schitt’s Creek opened the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards in historic form as it swept the comedy categories en route to winning the first seven gongs of the night including Outstanding Comedy Series 

Creators and father-son duo Eugene and Daniel Levy accepted the honor together as the son took time to urge viewers to vote.

Daniel said: ‘Oh, boy. Our show at its core is about the transformational effects of love and acceptance. We need it now more than ever before. If you have not registered to vote, please do so, and then go out and vote. That’s the only way we need love and acceptance out there. Dad, do the rest of the fun stuff, sorry for making this political.’

His father then took the microphone to thank production and the networks involved in the show before focusing on his son.

Eugene ended his speech by saying: ‘I also want to thank once again this young man, who took our fish out of water story about the rose family and transformed it into a celebration of inclusivity, a castigation of homophobia, and a declaration of the power of love. Thank you, Daniel. Thank you, academy, thank you.’

The sitcoms big run began with Catherine O’Hara earned the very first awards of the night which was presented by Jennifer Aniston and host Jimmy Kimmel.  

Golden: Catherine O’Hara won the first award of the night as she faced stiff competition in the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category including Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Linda Cardellini (Dead to Me), Issa Rae (Insecure), and Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish)

Wow factor: Jennifer Aniston presented the first gong of the night 

She faced stiff competition in the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category including Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Linda Cardellini (Dead to Me), Issa Rae (Insecure), and Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish). 

Catherine said: ‘Thank you for nominating me, and for topping off this fun evening with a trophy treat. I’ll forever be grateful to Eugene and Daniel Levy for giving me the opportunity to play a woman of a certain age, my age, who gets to be fully her ridiculous self. 

‘They gathered the most fun-loving people in Toronto, and led us to be the best we can be for each other. But I must pay an especially big tribute to Debra Hanson, our wardrobe whisperer. And my makeup angel, and to our hair wrangler. Every day, they made me who I thought I was. And I would be an ungrateful person not to share it with them.’

‘It was an honor to be in your company’: Eugene Levy was next as he won Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Schitt’s Creek

Sweet: As Schitt’s Creek was created by Eugene and his son Daniel – who was next to win an award – he made sure to credit his child during his speech as he said: ‘That brings me to my multi Emmy nominated partner, Daniel Levy’

Catherine’s big win only began Schitt’s Creek’s massive night as the sitcom, which aired on Pop TV, took home the first five awards of the night.

Eugene Levy was next as he won Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

The 73-year-old Canadian actor beat out heavy competition including Anthony Anderson (Black-ish),  Don Cheadle (Black Monday), Ted Danson (The Good Place), Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method), and  Ramy Youssef (Ramy).

Surprised: Daniel, 37, won in the Writing In A Comedy Series category against Sam Johnson and Chris Marcil (What We Do In The Shadows), Tony McNamara (The Great), Stefani Robinson (What We Do In The Shadows), Michael Schur (The Good Place), Paul Simms (What We Do In The Shadows, and David West Read (Schitt’s Creek)

As Schitt’s Creek was created by Eugene and his son Daniel – who was next to win an award – he made sure to credit his child during his speech as he said: ‘That brings me to my multi Emmy nominated partner, Daniel Levy.

‘Who took our show and brilliantly guided it to this little Emmy party tonight. Thank you, son. Thank you, academy. And to my fellow Emmy nominees, it was an honor to be in your company. Thank you.’

Daniel, 37, won in the Writing In A Comedy Series category against Sam Johnson and Chris Marcil (What We Do In The Shadows), Tony McNamara (The Great), Stefani Robinson (What We Do In The Shadows), Michael Schur (The Good Place), Paul Simms (What We Do In The Shadows, and David West Read (Schitt’s Creek). 

Perhaps an even bigger audience will be able to watch the show soon as Fox Television Studios recently scored the rights to syndicate the show, which is set to air all seasons starting from later this month. 

Celebration: Regina King was a big winner as she earned Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her work in Watchmen

Sisterhood: The 49-year-old actress – who wore a Breonna Taylor tribute T-shirt – said: ‘Wow. This — this is so freaking weird. Oh. My sisters, it’s an honor to be in this category with you. I truly love being a thespian’

Regina King was a big winner as she earned Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her work in Watchmen. 

She beat out Cate Blanchett (Mrs. America)m Shira Haas (Unorthodox)Octavia Spencer (Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker), and Kerry Washington (Little Fires Everywhere). 

The 49-year-old actress – who wore a Breonna Taylor tribute T-shirt – said: ‘Wow. This — this is so freaking weird. Oh. My sisters, it’s an honor to be in this category with you. I truly love being a thespian. 

‘Thank you, television academy, for choosing me to represent the thespian community.’

She went on to thank HBO and the entire team behind the production of the drama series before urging viewers to participate in the upcoming election before paying tribute to recently deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. 

Shining moment: Yahya Abdul-Mateen II also won for Watchmen as he earned Supporting Actor in Limited Series or Movie beating out Jovan Adepo (Watchmen), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend), Louis Gossett Jr. (Watchmen), Dylan McDermott (Hollywood), and Jim Parsons (Hollywood)

Shoutout: The 34-year-old actor said: ‘Watchmen was a story about trauma, and the lasting scars of white domestic terrorism, police corruption and brutality. But it was also a story of a god who came down to Earth to reciprocate to a black woman. And he did all of that in the body of a black man, and I’m so proud to have played him’

King concluded:  ‘You got to vote. I would be remiss not to mention that, being a part of a show like “Watchmen.” Have a voting plan, vote up the ballot, please. Go to ballotpedia.com, and it’s very important. Be a good human. Rest in power, RBG. And thank you.’

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II also won for Watchmen as he earned Supporting Actor in Limited Series or Movie beating out Jovan Adepo (Watchmen), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend), Louis Gossett Jr. (Watchmen), Dylan McDermott (Hollywood), and Jim Parsons (Hollywood). 

The 34-year-old actor said: ‘Watchmen was a story about trauma, and the lasting scars of white domestic terrorism, police corruption and brutality. But it was also a story of a god who came down to Earth to reciprocate to a black woman. And he did all of that in the body of a black man, and I’m so proud to have played him. 

‘I dedicate this to all the people in my life, my early investors. I love you, I appreciate you, and this is for you. Thank you.’ 

Hulking up: Mark Ruffalo won Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his work on I Know This Much Is True beating out competition including Jeremy Irons (Watchmen), Hugh Jackman (Bad Education), Paul Mescal (Normal People), and Jeremy Pope (Hollywood)

‘Our story was about a man, it’s about family’: The 52-year-old actor talked about the importance of the series which was centered around a middle-aged Dominick Birdsey who recounts his troubled relationship with Thomas, his paranoid schizophrenic twin brother, and his efforts to get him released from an asylum

Mark Ruffalo won Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his work on I Know This Much Is True beating out competition including  Jeremy Irons (Watchmen), Hugh Jackman (Bad Education), Paul Mescal (Normal People), and Jeremy Pope (Hollywood). 

The 52-year-old actor talked about the importance of the series which was centered around a middle-aged Dominick Birdsey who recounts his troubled relationship with Thomas, his paranoid schizophrenic twin brother, and his efforts to get him released from an asylum.

In his speech Ruffalo opened up about the importance of taking care of vulnerable people in America incouding people with mental illness as he said: ‘Our story was about a man, it’s about family.  It’s about a man who is fighting for his brother who is living with mental illness. It’s a story that is common throughout so much of the world today. And it asks a big question, how are we going to deal and honor and take care of each other and our most vulnerable people? And we do that with love, and we do that with compassion, and by fighting for them. And that is what we have to do today. 

‘We have to come together with love, for each other. And if you have privilege, you have to fight for those who are less fortunate, and more vulnerable. And that is what a great about America, our diversity. One thing I’ve learned from my wife and children, we’re stronger together when we love each other and we respect each other’s diversity. And so we have a big, important moment ahead of us.’ 

Jimmy Kimmel is the host of the event as he kicked off the show without an audience and instead canned audio and video from prior Emmy shows.

The 52-year-old then revealed that there was not actually an audience in attendance and that he was all alone as he poked fun at President Trump’s recent Nevada rally: ‘Of course I’m here all alone. Of course we don’t have an audience. This isn’t a MAGA rally, it’s The Emmy’s.’

This year’s Emmys honoring the best in television has already been radically different as producers scrambled to create Hollywood’s first major pandemic-era awards show.

The coronavirus has turned Tinseltown upside down, bringing productions to a halt even as stay-at-home orders around the world send binge-watching through the roof. 

Adding to the unpredictability on a night of firsts, 130-odd nominees who were sent cameras to hook up in their own living rooms have been encouraged to get creative with their speeches.

There will be no red carpet and no star-studded audience. A-listers are invited to trade gowns and tuxedos for pajamas.

‘Ratings have been flagging for award shows for years… This is, if nothing else, an opportunity to mix things up, to do an award ceremony in a way unlike any other that’s been done,’ said IndieWire TV awards editor Libby Hill.

‘Even if Sunday night is a complete disaster, it’s at least going to be an interesting disaster. And that’s really all you ask for in 2020.’

Capturing this year’s somewhat anarchic zeitgeist, Watchmen leads the charge with a whopping 26 nominations, primarily in the limited series categories.

The eerily prescient comic book adaptation that debuted last October confronts historic US racism, police violence and even mask-wearing. It also wowed critics and audiences alike.

Watchmen speaks so specifically in so many unprecedented ways to the moment in which we’re living right now,’ said Hill.

Simply stunning: Jennifer Aniston looked gorgeous as she presented the first award of the night 

Shining star: Tracee Ellis Ross was one of the first presenters of the night

Dapper: Jason Sudeikis presented Outstanding Comedy Series 

‘I think people will probably get pretty tired of hearing Watchmen’s name getting called… it’s as much of a lock as we have right now.’ 

With HBO’s record-breaking Emmys juggernaut Game of Thrones having finally mounted a dragon and soared off to Westeros, the awards in the drama series categories promise to be more fiercely contested this year.

‘It’s a relief for HBO that they have Succession hitting at the right time,’ said Deadline awards columnist Pete Hammond.

The critically adored show about a powerful family’s back-stabbing battle for control of a dynastic media empire won a writing Emmy in its first season, and has amassed 18 nominations this time.

Flying solo: Jimmy Kimmel is the host of the event as he kicked off the show without an audience and instead canned audio and video from prior Emmy shows

Like prom night: The 52-year-old then revealed that there was not actually an audience in attendance and that he was all alone as he poked fun at President Trump’s recent Nevada rally: ‘Of course I’m here all alone. Of course we don’t have an audience. This isn’t a MAGA rally, it’s The Emmy’s’

Social distancing: Kimmel kept quite the distance between he and presenter Jennifer Aniston

Uh oh: They lit the Emmy envelope on fire in a garbage can

But it is tied with Ozark, a dark money-laundering tale set in the American heartland from Netflix, which despite landing a record 160 nominations this year is still desperate to win its first major series Emmy.

Lurking in the background are British royals saga The Crown and Star Wars tale The Mandalorian, which boasts lavish Thrones-esque production values and has already scooped five Emmys in technical categories this week for newcomer Disney+.

Comedy this year appears to be a toss-up between previous serial winner The Marvelous Mrs Maisel- Amazon’s quirky tale of a 1950s housewife who becomes a standup comic – and Schitt’s Creek.

Keeping it clean: There were sanitizer stations in the shape of the Emmy Award

Sprawling: The event was held inside the massive Staples Center arena in Downtown Los Angeles as it is shown before showtime 

The latter, a Canadian comedy about a privileged family forced to live in a rundown motel, failed to earn a single nomination in its first four years, but became a sleeper hit after airing on Netflix and signed off with a heartwarming final season. 

Aside from the awards themselves, the night will honor the career achievement of Tyler Perry.

The African-American entertainment mogul has championed greater diversity in Hollywood, and this year paid funeral costs for black victims of police violence including George Floyd.  

Taking all precautions: All attendees were subjected to COVID-19 tests including Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross.
