Creative Arts Emmys 2020 Night 5 (Full List of Winners)

Creative Arts Emmys 2020 Night 5 (Full List of Winners)

This year’s fifth and final night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies aired Saturday night “virtually live” on FXX, and viewers discovered that first hand, when a snafu happened late in the broadcast during the award for guest actor in a drama.

When the winner was revealed, the screen read Ron Cephas Jones (“This Is Us”) — but the voice over announced Jason Bateman, from “The Outsider.” Producers quickly realized their mistake, and pulled the visual down, going to commercial. When the show returned, an on-screen note offered an apology:

Lazy loaded image

It turns out Cephas Jones was indeed the winner, although if he had sent in an acceptance speech, it wasn’t played.

And so goes Emmy 2020, a most unusual year that has led to a most unusual setup for this year’s Emmy Awards. A virtual Emmys was bound to have some hiccups, and this could perhaps be a foreshadowing of Sunday night’s main Emmy Awards, as producers have promised to expect the unexpected — including a few gaffes along the way. Live TV!

The FXX telecast was the finale of the 100 Creative Arts awards passed out over five days this year. (Normally, the Creative Arts Emmys are presented over two nights the weekend before the primetime ceremony.) Like the four shows streamed earlier this week, segments for the show were pre-taped, but the show was produced in real time, as reps from Ernst & Young revealed winners to the show’s control room over the next two hours — hence, perhaps the accidental button pushing.

Among the night’s other winners: “RuPaul’s Drag Race’s” RuPaul Charles broke the record for most consecutive hosting wins, landing his fifth consecutive Emmy for reality or competition program host. Eddie Murphy, meanwhile, won his first-ever Emmy, for hosting “Saturday Night Live” — which landed

  • JPMorgan Private Bank’s Monica DiCenso told Bloomberg on Friday that the stock market won’t see the bullish outcome it’s expecting from a Biden win unless there’s a blue wave victory. 
  • The head of US equity strategy said that it will be difficult for Biden to pass a large stimulus bill without Democratic control of the Senate. 
  • The stimulus would also offset higher corporate taxes that are likely under a Democratic administration, she said. 

JPMorgan Private Bank’s head of US equity strategy told Bloomberg on Friday that the stock market won’t see the bullish outcome it’s expecting from a Joe Biden victory unless there’s a full blue wave outcome.

“It does appear increasingly likely that we see a blue wave and I think that is what the market is pricing in right now when you see equities continue to move,” Monica DiCenso said.

The strategist explained that it will be much harder for Biden to pass a large stimulus bill without Democratic control of the Senate, and said: “I really do think you probably need the blue wave for the real bullish outcome that many people are talking about to come to fruition.” 

DiCenso added that the stimulus, combined with continued low interest rates, will be the “perfect backdrop for equities over the near to intermediate term.”

While some investors are nervous that a blue wave will be negative for stocks because Biden’s corporate tax hikes will crush company earnings, DiCenso said the stimulus spending will offset higher taxes.

Bank of England Warns That Full Brexit Could Be Bumpy for Investors | Investing News

Bank of England Warns That Full Brexit Could Be Bumpy for Investors | Investing News

By Huw Jones and David Milliken

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s full exit from the European Union could be bumpy for investors as banks staff new hubs in the bloc, but there are few threats to wider financial stability, the Bank of England said on Thursday.

Britain left the EU in January and full access to the single market under transition arrangements expires on Dec. 31, with future access for financial services largely to be decided.

The BoE’s Financial Policy Committee said that most risks to stability that could arise from disruption to cross-border business after December have now been mitigated.

“Some market volatility and disruption to financial services, particularly to EU-based clients, could arise,” the FPC said.

Brussels has granted market access for UK clearing houses from January, though only for 18 months.

There are currently 59 trillion pounds of derivative contracts between UK clearers and their members in the bloc, 48 trillion pounds of which is due to expire after December, the FPC said.

Banks and insurers that have used London as an EU gateway have set up new or expanded existing hubs in the bloc.

“Financial institutions were continuing to make preparations and engage with clients and customers to minimise any disruption and it was important that they continue to do so,” the FPC said.

On average, over two-thirds of clients of UK-based banks have now completed the necessary documentation to enter into derivative trades with the EU entities, the FPC said.

Insurance companies in Britain have restructured their business in order to service the vast majority of their 60 billion pounds of EU liabilities, it said.

“The number of clients actively trading in the new entities is materially lower. Some operational risks therefore remain, including if many clients seek to migrate to the EU entities in a
