They did it! The Rose family made history when Schitt’s Creek blew like a breath of fresh air, and swept the Comedy Category at the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards Show on Sunday night.
They were nominated for 15 awards, and won a staggering 9 of those awards, including every major award in the Comedy Category! This makes them the FIRST show ever to sweet the Comedy Category.
I mean, if there was ever a show that was going to break history, it HAD to be Schitt’s Creek all the way, AMIRITE?!?
Dan Levy was definitely the big winner of the night, taking home home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, Writing a Comedy Series, and Directing a Comedy Series.
Of course, Moira, Catherine O’Hara, finally won her Emmy, and she did it in the most Moira way possible — surrounded by her “family,” on a history making show (it was all virtual this year AND this was the first year a show swept the Comedy Category), and full of the grace and charm that only Moira could bring to the show.
Eugene Levy and Annie Murphy also won for their portrayal of Johnny and Alexis Rose. I am so stinking happy for them!
The show was also nominated in 2019, but it
was robbed didn’t take home any awards last year. That’s okay, they were saving up those big wins for 2020!
Celebrities were just as excited about the Schitt’s Creek wins as the rest of the world, sharing their fandom via the Twitterverse.
Woot-Woot! Maybe this is the turn around that 2020 needed. Things are now looking up, and the Schitt’s Creek cast FINALLY got the recognition they deserve!
