HBO’s Watchmen Is The Biggest Winner At Emmy Awards 2020

HBO’s Watchmen by Damon Lindelof is a spiritual sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ legendary comic book of the same name, picking up decades after the events of the source material. It ended its nine-episode first season run in December 2019.

It’s scary how relevant the themes of the series is in light of recent events, as the TV series also touched on police brutality, white supremacy, as well as the past and present plight of Black people, including the 1921 Tulsa massacre.

Developed by Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers), Watchmen won Outstanding Limited Series, with Regina King winning Outstanding Lead Actress for her role as Angela Abar / Sister Night and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II winning Outstanding Supporting Actor for his role as Cal Abar / Doctor Manhattan.

Lindelof himself and writer Cord Jefferson also won Outstanding Writing in a Limited Series for Watchmen Season 1 Episode 6 ‘This Extraordinary Being’.

Watchmen only missed out on three others awards that it was nominated for, including Outstanding Lead Actor (in which Jeremy Irons lost to I Know This Much is True’s Mark Ruffalo), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series (Jean Smart lost to Mrs. America‘s Uzo Aduba), and Outstanding Directing in a Limited Series (three different Watchmen episodes lost to Netflix’s Unorthodox).

Watchmen also won the following awards:

  • Outstanding Casting for a Limited Series.
  • Outstanding Sound Editing for a Limited Series.
  • Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited Series (putting Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross one Tony away from an “EGOT”).
  • Outstanding Cinematography for a Limited Series (This Extraordinary Being).
  • Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes (“It’s Summer and We’re Running Out of Ice”).
  • Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Limited Series (“A God Walks into Abar”).
  • Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Limited Series (“This Extraordinary Being”).

Overall, Watchmen won a whopping 11 awards at the Emmy Awards 2020.
