This year’s rather different primetime Emmy Awards – or “Pandemmys” – have happened, and there are many happy winners.

They may not have been able to attend the regular annual schmoozefest, but with the wonders of online connection at least we got to see most of the nominees, many of whom frocked up regardless.

Many of the Emmys were hand delivered, via folk ensconced in hazmat suits.

The event was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, and a lot of fun was had in a time that really needs a lot of fun.

Comedy-wise, it was an absolute Schitt-fest, with the wonderful Schitt’s Creek nabbing every award that it was nominated for. Watchmen did very well, as did Succession when it came to drama.
