Hollywood’s biggest television stars received their awards remotely, as we were treated to the first ‘new normal’ award show in 2020
There was no red carpet preceding last night’s Emmys; no ‘who are you wearing’ interviews, no embraces between actresses as they compare their gowns for the cameras. A 2020 award show is a decidedly different affair, and last night’s proceedings gave us a glimpse into what we can expect from the ‘new normal’ award season.
It turns out that post-Covid award celebrations look like a massive Zoom meeting (read: worst nightmare realised). Casts and crews of Hollywood waved through their webcams at host Jimmy Kimmel, and many opted for a pre-award show Instagram shoot to show off their fashion wares, before settling into something more comfortable for the show itself.
But style certainly was not compromised during the 2020 Emmys – even in their more relaxed get-ups, stars used their wardrobes as a way to make a statement. Actresses Regina King and Uzo Aduba both paid tribute to the late Breonna Taylor while accepting their respective awards, showing their respect for the 26-year-old who was shot and killed by Louisville police in her home earlier this year.
As with every year, we waited with bated breath for fabulous fashion statements at this year’s Emmys, and we were not disappointed. See below for our Best Dressed of the evening.
