Last night was the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards and it was truly unlike any other Emmy’s due to COVID-19 concerns and necessary social distancing measures. The ceremony was originally supposed to be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but was instead held at the Staples Center and largely featured a digital format due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the winners giving speeches virtually from their homes. Despite many of the nominees appearing from the comfort of their own homes, a fair number of them were still dressed up, and there were still plenty of luxury timepieces to be spotted, and among them were a number of noteworthy Omega watches.
