How were the Primetime Emmy Awards 2020?
Emmy Awards was fun as we saw a mini revision of the classic TV show “Friends”. Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, and Lisa Kudrow featured together. Jeremy Strong won the Best Actor for “Succession”. The show also won the Best Drama Series Award. “Watchmen” took home the Best Limited Series, Best Actress for Limited Series, and the Best Supporting Actor Award. Zendaya became the youngest actress to win an Emmy award for the Lead Actress category thereby creating history. The event was as fun as one can think. However, without the fans and the live show, it seemed like the award vibes were missing. Many are happy for winning but the pandemic does not seem like the right time to celebrate the victories.
