Everything you need to know ahead of the 2020 Emmy Awards

The ceremony will take place on Sunday

SHARE

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will air this Sunday, so we’ve listed everything you need to know ahead of the ceremony.

For the first time ever, the Emmys will take place virtually – due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The ceremony was originally supposed to take place at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, but organisers announced plans to host the event virtually back in July.

According to Variety, Jimmy Kimmel will host this year’s Emmys from a stage inside the Staples Center, and there will be no red carpet or audience.

Instead, the production will dispatch camera rigs and crews to more than 130 locations around the world, so nominees can appear on the show virtually.

The ceremony will kick off at 8pm EST, which will be 1am Irish time, and the entire show is being aired on ABC, and streamed on YouTube TV.

A number of Irish people are nominated for an Emmy Award this year – including Paul Mescal, Andrew Scott, Lenny Abrahamson, and Fiona Shaw.

Paul has been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series for Normal People, and Lenny Abrahamson has received a nod for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series.

Normal People author Sally Rooney and screenwriter Alice Birch have also been nominated in the Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series category, and Louise Kiely has been nominated for Outstanding Casting for a Limited Series.

Meanwhile, Andrew Scott is up for the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series award, thanks to his role in Black Mirror, and Killing Eve star Fiona Shaw has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
