Here’s our pick of the best behind-the-scenes snaps from the 2020 Emmy Awards.

Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards looked very different to any other.

And, since all this social distancing meant that there was no red carpet, it was up to the stars themselves to share their experience of the Emmys via their Instagram feeds.

It makes sense, then, that social media has been absolutely flooded with some pretty incredible photos. Think behind-the-scenes snaps, bold fashion moments, messages of support, and more.

Here, we’ve rounded up just some of our favourites.

Kerry Washington

Little Fires Everywhere star Kerry Washington donned a leopard print Dolce & Gabbana gown for the night, pairing her look with emerald Chopard jewels.

“Haven’t dressed up in a while so had to make the most of it,” she said.

Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee Ellis Ross made sure to match her face mask to her frothy Alexandre Vauthier frock.

“I made my own red carpet for the Emmys, complete with some camera clicks,” she captioned her video of the look.

Reese Witherspoon

“Shortest Emmys commute yet,” joked Reese Witherspoon, who selected a Louis Vuitton LBD for the evening.

“Bringing the festivities to my lawn and excited to celebrate!”

Jameela Jamil

“No bra? No heels? NO PROBLEM,” said Jameela Jamil.

“Wearing PJs to the 72nd Emmy awards (from my house) is my kind of vibes. Excited to see if we win any of the 7 awards we have been nominated for!”

“I still did my make-up and wore a sequin dressing gown, because… it’s what Tahani would have wanted,” Jamil added. 

“And this is her day, not mine.”

Issa Rae wore a bold Sergio Hudson design for the Emmys, which she celebrated “in Inglewood with the homies.”

“Wouldn’t have it any other way,” she added.

Y’all looked good tonight! Stay safe everyone and have a great night. REMEMBER TO VOTE THIS NOVEMBER! YOUR VOICE MATTERS!!!!”

“Sitting here with my @ozark crew hat wishing I could be with everyone to celebrate in person,” wrote Emmys winner Julia Garner. “I’m so proud to be on this show. It has changed my life in so many ways. 

“I’m so grateful. I’m not only grateful to be working, but to be able to work with people I love. Also I want to give a special thanks to Meryl Streep, who wasn’t on the zoom call tonight. When I was 15 I watched Sophie’s Choice and it made me want to be an actress. I wouldn’t be doing this if it weren’t for you. And thank god because I don’t really know how to do anything else!! So thank you. 

“Love to you all!! Thank you for putting a smile on my face this year. The world is better because you are all in it. We can get through anything if we do it together. Let love be our guide.”
