It's a weird year for the Emmy Awards. Though, when you break it all down it's kind of just a weird year for everything. With that said, everyone's adapting to the odd situation the best they can. Nominees were sent video kits to ensure the best streaming quality possible, and production crews worked tirelessly to create the show. Given the circumstances, it was a solid event. Schitt's Creek rightfully swept the comedy categories despite some stiff competition, Mark Ruffalo gave one heck of a speech, and Watchmen came for what was theirs. 

Here were our predictions, if you want to join us in laughing at how much we got wrong! And, without further ado, here are the winners of the 72nd Emmy Awards.
