If you've been anywhere near the internet today, you'll have probably seen that Schitt's Creek swept the FLOOR at the Emmy awards last night [20 September 2020]. In the virtual ceremony, which saw nominees tuning in from their homes with their family, the Canadian series won nine prizes - breaking the Emmys record for most wins in a single season for a comedy.
Schitt's Creek broadcast its sixth and final season this year, and won the best comedy series prize, with the show's creators Eugene and Daniel Levy (father and son), picking up best comedy actor and best supporting comedy actor respectively.
Catherine O'Hara was named best comedy actress, with Annie Murphy winning best supporting actress in a comedy series, while the series also won best directing and best writing.
So yeah, that's a lot of prizes. And if you've woken up this morning thinking, 'huh, maybe I need to watch Schitt's Creek then'. First of all, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING? And secondly, you'll be happy to know that you can actually watch all six series on Netflix UK.
The plot follows the Rose family; who were once filthy rich, but are reduced to living in a ramshackle motel they once bought as a joke when they fall on hard times. That motel is Schitt's Creek.
In his acceptance speech for best writer, Daniel thanked his dad Eugene for his supporting work, commenting, "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, which saying that out loud right now feels like a wild choice on your part, but I am very grateful for it."
