How to watch the Emmys from the UK tonight and what will be different this year

The 72nd Emmys will be a very different show this year as the event is set to take place virtually due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

The show, which honours the best TV shows and actors over the past year, will be hosted by comedian and talkshow host Jimmy Kimmel. 

Other presenters will include Oprah Winfrey, Laverne Cox and Morgan Freeman, while music star H.E.R is expected to perform during the show's ‘In Memoriam’ section.

This year the Emmys will stream from an empty Staples Center in Los Angeles, with all the nominees, presenters and performances broadcasting from their homes around the world. 

Here's how you can follow the action:
