‘Schitt’s Creek’ Breaks The Record For Most Wins For A Comedy Series After Emmy Victory

The TV sitcom ‘Schitt’s Creek’ aired on CBC Television from January 13, 2015, to April 7, 2020, swept Emmys at Sunday night and set a new record for most Emmy wins by a comedy series in a single season.

The series, starring Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy, Chris Elliott, Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Noah Reid, Sarah Levy, Karen Robinson, Dustin Milligan, John Hemphill and Rizwan Manji, was nominated for 15 Emmys at 72nd Emmy Awards, and won all seven major comedy awards including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Directing.

Daniel Levy, who received Emmys for Outstanding Directing For A Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For A Comedy Series, Outstanding Comedy Series, and Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series said during the acceptance speech before apologizing for making this political:

“Our show at its core is about the transformational effects of love and acceptance, and that is something that we need more of now than we’ve ever needed before. (…) go out and vote because that is the only way that we are going to have some love and acceptance out there”

Meanwhile, the official Twitter account for the series released the following statement:

“With Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Dan Levy, and Annie Murphy winning their #Emmys tonight, that means our little Canadian show is the first comedy OR drama to ever sweep all four acting categories, and that is absolutely wild.”

As remember the series also was nominated twice for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series for its portrayal of LGBTQ+ people.
