Emmys 2020: Why the awards couldn't resist 'Schitt's Creek'

It seems fitting that the Emmy Awards—in a year that has seen a cancellation of the Olympics—chose to go ahead with a televised ceremony. 2020 has seen us burrow into our television screens like never before, for comfort and reassurance, for reruns and long-overdue binges, for movies we had always meant to catch up on and those we’d otherwise have watched on a larger screen, for news that looks like bad reality TV and for talk shows where guests video-call from their bedrooms. The idiot box has held us together in unexpected, necessary fashion.
