The Emmys may have a different look this year, but that didn’t stop Schitt’s Creek from raking the in the awards. The hit comedy show started the evening with 15 nominations, and so far they’ve come away with 7 wins.
Earlier, the cast and some members of the crew got themselves tested for Covid-19 and then self isolated so they could celebrate the nominations together. Turns out, they’re going to be celebrating a whole lot more.
Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Annie Murphy and Dan Levy all took home the awards for Best Leading Actress, Leading Actor, Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor. Talk about a clean sweep.
The show also bagged the awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Director and Outstanding Writing. Understandably, Twitter is mighty impressed.
Schitt’s Creek made a point to make viewers feel safe by showcasing women without harassment, queer love without trauma, sexual fluidity without shame, economic disparity without mockery, and creativity without limitation. What they built is just so special. They deserve it all. pic.twitter.com/a6xCPX9eUl— Sarah McGonagall (@gothspiderbitch) September 21, 2020
Schitt’s Creek is a triumph of television and I HATED it so much in the first few episodes—why should I care about these white people—that it took me two years between starting it to go back and finish it.— Imani Gandy ✊🏾 (@AngryBlackLady) September 21, 2020
If you’re stuck on season 1, push through. I promise you it’s worth it.

I’m pretty sure that’s the first time any comedy program has swept Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Supporting Actor all in the same year. Schitt’s Creek just made history.#Emmys— Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) September 21, 2020
