Jimmy Kimmel, this year’s host struck the perfect tone of keeping everyone entertained while still acknowledging the bizarre nature of the ceremony.

The empty chairs in the staples Centre in Los Angeles were filled with cardboard cut-outs of celebrities, to make up for the lack of an audience.

Zendaya made history with a surprise win for best drama actress, becoming the youngest ever winner in that category. The actress and her family’s ecstatic reaction to her win provided one of the most Gif-able moments of the night.

Lastly, Regina king an Emmy superhero, and queen of the limited series, won best actress in a limited series at the show for her role as Angela Abar, aka the masked hero sister night, on HBO’s “Watchmen.”

King was handed the trophy as she sat in a living room in the pandemic-altered Emmys.

It’s the fourth Emmy in six years for king, she won the same award in 2018 for “Seven seconds,” and took best supporting actress in a limited series or TV movie for two different roles on “American crime” in 2015 and 2016.
