The 2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards is virtual (of course) this year with comedian and Nailed It!host Nicole Byer hosting the five-night ceremony, which kicked off on Monday.
The award streamed for four straight nights on emmys.com and concluded with a grand finale that aired on FXX at 8 p.m. ET/PT on September 19.
While Black-led shows such as VH1’s RuPaul’s Drag Racewon two awards for hairstyling and makeup, former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama’s production company Higher Ground Productions also won an Emmy for directing for a documentary/nonfiction program for American Factory. Araxi Lindsey, who’s the department head hairstylist for black-ish, won the show’s first Emmy for outstanding contemporary hairstyling.
On Sunday, September 20, Jimmy Kimmel returned as host of the Primetime Emmys — or as he called them the “Pandemmys” — where more of our faves like Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson made IRL appearances, while Little Fires Everywhere stars Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon hosted a social distanced New Years Eve viewing party.
