excitement building for television's biggest night, the emmys. This year, the pandemic has changed everything as we know, and overnight we got a taste of what's to come with creative arts emmys awarded. Chris Connelly joins us with more. Chris, good morning. Reporter: Hey, good morning, whit. Yeah, creative arts emmys wrapping up last night. Primetime emmys tonight hoping to use comedy and creativity to navigate the social distancing era. Tonight, amid the pandemic it will be a primetime emmys unlike any other. No red carpet outside staples center. No audience inside it and no problem for this year's show with Jimmy Kimmel as your host. How will we pull it off this year? I don't know. What is your favorite season? Awards. Reporter: From the sweetly comic roses surviving and thriving up the creek, and the loved one -- A man treated like a woman, but is officially a man. Reporter: To "The mandalorian's" baby yoda caregiving. I don't know what the fuss was about. Reporter: And the savage rivalries of the Roys in "Session." You can't make a tomlet without making some gregs. Reporter: Shows about a family's toxic and tender joy. The only political statement I want to make is this -- Reporter: Much like Saturday night with rupaul winning for reality host. Ron Cephas Jones winning in a drama Emmy for "This is us." Also celebrating the victory of his daughter, "Hamilton" star Jasmine Cephas Jones, for "Free rayshawn." I tear up every time I think about it. That's been the highlight of this journey is to have my journey follow in our footsteps. Reporter: The "The last dance" out-besting "Tiger king," and Maya Rudolph adding to her voiceover Emmy victory for "Big I just want to show you how good you could have had it, America. Reporter: For her "Snl" work as senator, and vice presidential nominee, kamala Harris. "Snl" is one of those magical places so when they ask me to jump, I usually say how high? Reporter: And "20/20's" primetime nominees might be, we'll see them react, and the show will go on. 130 video kits sent to nominees in ten different countries, and a ring light to give those potential winners that emmy-winning glow, whit. The ring light always necessary. Even for the stars. Chris, thank you so much. Of course, be sure to join Chris, me, janai and Eva this evening on ABC newslive for our countdown to the emmys. That's starting at 6:30 P.M. Eastern. We're getting the party started a little bit early tonight. I had to get extra directions for my ring light because I didn't use it correctly apparently. Not as simple as it seems.
