What to look out for in the 2020 EmmysWill Ganss breaks down the stay-at-home fashion and the new diverse class of the Emmy’s, the first major award show since the pandemic.2020-09-18T15:42:01Z

This year, the 2020 Emmy Awards are going online, complete with a virtual media center where members of the press can be connected with the winners in real-time to conduct the interviews they would normally do in a backstage press room.

Televisions biggest night boasts appearances by Anthony Anderson, America Ferrera, Issa Rae, Gabrielle Union, J.J. Watt, Lena Waithe, Oprah Winfrey, Jason Bateman, Sterling K. Brown, Laverne Cox, Count Von Count, Morgan Freeman, Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, Lin-Manuel Miranda, D-Nice, Randall Park, RuPaul, Patrick Stewart, and Jason Sudeikis. H.E.R. is also set for a special musical performance and Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the evening.

Streaming channel ABCNews Live will also have a virtual preshow called “Countdown to the Emmys.” This 90-minute live special is hosted by Good Morning Ameica weekend co-anchors Eva Pilgram and Whit Johnson and ABC News Correspondent Janai Norman. The special will feature live interviews with nominees; showcase the most diverse group of nominees ever; predict who will win and who might surprise during the ceremony; spotlight the unprecedented year for TV production; and revisit some of the greatest fashion to grace Emmys red carpets of the past, along with a glimpse at this year’s “couch couture.”

Jimmy Kimmel Took His Family on an RV Road TripJimmy Kimmel talks about buying an RV going on a family road trip over his summer vacation.

Pilgrim, Norman, and Johnson will be joined by ABC News correspondent Chris Connelly and ESPN’s The Undefeated senior entertainment reporter Kelley Carter live from outside of the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

It will certainly be a different kind of awards show. As Kimmel explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, “The fact of the matter is, it’s more fun to do jokes in front of an audience. There’s no question about that. But we’re just trying to be as creative as possible given the constraints and there are a lot of areas you can have fun with. Because everybody knows how an award show goes, but nobody really knows how it goes from a bunch of houses. So, we’re going to play with the conventions that we typically see at the Emmys and all these other award shows and adapt them. It’s almost like a home game version of a beloved television show. It’s like playing Wheel of Fortune in your house.”

The 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards air live Sunday, September 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
