Watch: USS Delbert Black commissioned at private ceremony

Sept. 26 (UPI) — The USS Delbert Black was commissioned at Port Canaveral in Florida on Saturday.

The ceremony was private, with a small number of in-person guests and speakers, due to COVID-19. But it was livestreamed, with some Navy and political leaders delivering remarks remotely.

In the days leading up to the 2020 Emmy Awards, the big concern was how the producers and host Jimmy Kimmel were going to pull off a virtual ceremony. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Kimmel would be at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Most nominees would be home or wherever they chose to be, and would be connecting remotely. The possibility of technological foul-ups and other potential disasters loomed large.

As it turned out, though, the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards show on Sunday came off with only a few technical glitches.
