Schitt's Creek Becomes First Show Ever To Sweep All Four Categories At The Emmys

Schitt's Creek Becomes First Show Ever To Sweep All Four Categories At The Emmys

The 2020 Emmy Awards have been absolutely dominated by the much-loved comedy show Schitt's Creek.

It managed to win all four major acting categories, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress, as well as three other gongs for writing and directing.

The show also won the coveted Best Comedy Series award at the 72nd Emmy Awards and the cast was spellbound by the achievement.

Eugene Levy, who played the Rose family patriarch Johnny, nabbed his first Emmy in 37 years while Catherine O'Hara, who played Moira, won her first ever acting Emmy.

The actor addressed everyone at the virtual ceremony, saying: "I guess it's kind of ironical that the straightest role I've ever played lands me an Emmy for a comedy performance. So now I seriously have to question just what I've been doing for the past 50 years.

"And that brings me to my multi-Emmy nominated partner: Daniel Levy, who took our show that we came up with and brilliantly guided it to this little me party tonight. So thank you, son."

Eugene's son Dan, who not only played Johnny's on-screen son, David, but also co-created and co-wrote the show (winning an Emmy for Best Writing in a Comedy Series in the process) expressed his shock and surprise at the announcement.

Dan said: "I just want to say thank you to my dad for giving me the reins to this show, even though I didn't have any experience in a writers room. Saying that out loud right now feels like a wild choice on your part, but I am very grateful for it."

The Final Season Of Schitt's Creek Has Landed On Netflix Early

published at21 days ago

"And I am so, so proud of the cast and the crew and the writers, and I can't believe that Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara are my friends.

And I'm so proud to be a part of a show that stands for love and kindness and inclusivity and acceptance, because those four things are things that we need more than ever right now."

Schitt's Creek tells the story of the Rose family, who have to leave their life of luxury after video store magnate Johnny 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.
