Catherine O'Hara Wins An Emmy Award For Moira Rose On Schitt's Creek
Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy have won an Emmy Award each for their iconic characters Moira and Johnny Rose on Schitt's Creek.
The Canadian actors have been lauded and praised for their quirky and eclectic characters since the show debuted more than half a decade ago.
After several nominations over the years, Catherine and Eugene have been crowned.
Ms O'Hara has taken home the first award of the night, Best Comedy Actress, and was shortly followed by Eugene.
Dany Levy, Eugene's son, who also played David Rose, Johnny's Son, has also picked up an Emmy tonight for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.
The ceremony is being held virtually this year due to the pandemic, so there isn't the usual glitzy red carpet, flurry of entertainment reporters and photographers or massive audience.

Instead, the awards will be handed out virtually and Jimmy Kimmel has been enlisted to host the evening's awards.
Catherine has been nominated for an award for Moria 18 times and clinched the win for 10 of the times.
The show is all about the Rose family, who have to pack up their lives and leave their glamorous belongings behind after video store magnate and patriarch Johnny (Eugene Levy) is defrauded by his business manager.
A synopsis explains: "They are forced to rebuild their lives with their sole remaining asset: a small town named Schitt's Creek, which they had bought for their son as a joke birthday gift back in 1991.
"The Roses relocate to Schitt's Creek, moving into two adjacent rooms in a run-down motel. As the family adjusts to their new lives, their well-to-do attitudes come into conflict with the more provincial residents of Schitt's Creek, including mayor Roland Schitt (Chris Elliott), his wife Jocelyn (Jenn Robertson), and the motel's manager, Stevie Budd (Emily Hampshire)."
The sixth and final season debuted on Netflix earlier this year and everyone bid farewell to the incredible show.
