LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — TV’s biggest weekend has finally come, but it will look a little different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will be held virtually on Sunday, with Jimmy Kimmel hosting from a (mostly) empty Staples Center.

To maintain the spirit of the live show, 130 production units have been sent across the globe to involve the nominees in the night, even from their homes, according to IndieWire.

“I think it’s about 20 cities, and 125 different locations. And I think it’s about 10 countries. If you think about those logistics,” said executive producer Ian Stewart in a Q&A with entertainment journalists on Wednesday. “If there’s 130 live feeds coming in, it’s like trying to watch 130 Sports matches at the same time. You have so many things coming in and also so many things that can stop coming in.”

While the red carpet has been canceled, a pre-show is still in the books, with a look back at some of the best Emmys red carpet looks from previous years as well as celebrity interviews.

Just 24 awards will be handed out on Sunday, as a majority of the statuettes have already been presented this week during the Creative Arts Emmys. The Creative Arts Emmys will wrap up Saturday night, with 30 more awards to be handed out.

So far, HBO, Netflix, and Disney+ are the top winners heading into the main event on Sunday. “The Mandalorian” has helped Disney+ secure six wins. HBO and Netflix have earned a dozen each.

The nominees for the top awards are below. A full list of nominees and winners can be found here.
