The 72nd Emmy Awards, or the “Pand-Emmys”, as host Jimmy Kimmel called them were one for the books. For starters, Kimmel hosted the show from a nearly empty (thank you for showing up, Jason Bateman) Staples Centre in Los Angeles while the nominees tuned in from around the world. And though there was no glitzy red carpet, Hollywood turned up in their finest designer wear, injecting a dose of glamour into the ceremony.

Emmys history was made several times tonight and delighted not just the winners but everyone who tuned in to catch the awards. Schitt’s Creek (pictured above) broke a record when it swept seven accolades in the comedy category and took home a total of nine Emmys, the most ever for a comedy in a year. Zendaya become the youngest ever Emmy winner for Lead Actress in Drama when she won for Euphoria, and the second-ever African American woman following Viola Davis to win the category in 72 years. Regina King picked up an Emmy for her portrayal of Angela Abar in Watchmen, making it her fourth career Emmy. She is now tied with Alfre Woodard for the most acting Emmys won by an African American performer.
