Virtual Emmy Awards: 'Schitt's Creek' Wins All Comedy Categories

In the past, Jen always brought her A-game to the Emmys, so we weren't too surprised to see her in such an awesome look again this year - even if the show was held virtually this time around. There has been a mini-Friends reunion moment where co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox came together.

She might have missed out on the outstanding lead actress in a drama award (more on that below) for her role in The Morning Show, but Aniston still managed to steal the show. American television host Jimmy Kimmel is hosting this year's Emmys.

Among the delightful surprises at this year's Emmys (did anyone else gasp when they cut to audiences in previous years, thinking it was a live feed?), we're getting a few IRL appearances from stars.

However, the 26-year-old star did manage to thank the cast and crew of the show, with a particular tribute for Jason Bateman and Laura Linney for "bringing me under your wing, and teaching me how to be not only a better actor, but a better person".

"Of course we don't have an audience", Kimmel said, taking a dig at President Donald Trump saying, "This isn't a MAGA rally", the Times reported.

It is likely that Amazon will announce new smart speakers and smart displays for consumers at its fall event. The September 24 event is invite-only so it is possible that Amazon may not live stream it for the public.

"Thank you to the academy, thank you to HBO", said Strong.

"We've been roommates since 1994, Jimmy", Aniston added, a nod to the Friends' premiere date.

Jimmy Kimmel ran the show at an empty Staples Centre in Los Angeles while award winners gave speeches from their homes. It was a little awkward and also might have been confusing for people who didn't know the Emmys would be entirely virtual.

The Viacom-owned Pop TV, thanks exclusively to a complete sweep of the comedy categories by Schitt's Creek, came in third with a total of 10 awards.

Uzo Aduba, who nabbed a supporting actress Emmy for FX limited series Mrs America, described the feminist icon's death as "absolutely devastating".
