TV’s biggest awards night looked a little different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards did not have a red carpet and many stars and nominees watched from the comfort of their home in their favorite pajamas. Still, it did not stop fan-favorite shows—including Schitt’s Creek, Watchmen, and The Morning Show—from winning big at the 2020 Emmys.
If you somehow haven’t seen these popular shows or want to rewatch them in their entirety, you can still stream them all online thanks to the age of cord-cutting. Below is a list of every show that won a major award during the 2020 Emmys and where you can stream them online.
Plus, if you want to amp your streaming up a little more, we recommend watching with the Roku Ultra, which is the best streaming device we’ve ever tested. It’s easy to use and offers 4K content, so you can watch these Emmy-winning shows in the best possible quality.
