This year's Emmy Awards look different due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Namely, Hollywood's brightest stars are attending the award show from the comfort of their own homes.

Prior to tonight's production, executive producer Reginald Hudlin told Variety that an estimated 140 camera feeds would be coming into the Staples Center, the home base for the production team. The famed arena also serves as Jimmy Kimmel's stage for the evening.
