“Schitt’s Creek” Sweeps the 2020 Emmy Awards with Seven Wins

    Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Annie Murphy, and Dan Levy in "Schitt's Creek"

    Schitt’s Creek has been around for six seasons, but it took some time for the Emmy voters to take notice this show. That moment finally came this year, as this Canadian sitcom got the credit it deserves in the form of seven Primetime Emmy wins.

    Schitt’s Creek was named as the best comedy series, in addition to winning the awards for best directing and writing in comedy series. Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy, and Dan Levy all won Emmys in the acting categories. This is actually the first time in the history of this award show that a single comedy series came out victorious in all four main acting categories.

    When it comes to the rest of the winners’ list, Succession was the biggest winner of the night in the drama categories, while Watchmen dominated the limited series categories. These weren’t the only big wins for HBO. Zendaya made history as the youngest winner for a lead actress in a drama with her role in Euphoria.

    The virtual Primetime Emmy Awards were held on September 20th. The ceremony was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, with Hazmat suit-clad presenters delivering the awards to the winners.
