20th Primetime Emmy Awards

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 20th Emmy Awards, later known as the 20th Primetime Emmy Awards, were handed out on May 19, 1968. The ceremony was hosted by Frank Sinatra and Dick Van Dyke. Winners are listed in bold and series' networks are in parentheses.

The top shows of the night were, Get Smart and Mission: Impossible. Get Smart won three major awards, while the most nominated show was the anthology drama CBS Playhouse with nine, it also won three major awards.

The first posthumous Acting Emmy went to Marion Lorne for her performance in Bewitched, while The Avengers was the first non American produced nomination, having been syndicated from ABC Weekend TV, which was a part of the United Kingdom Independent Television Network, by ABC. However, other than sharing the same initials, the two companies were independent of each other.
