Canadian Comedy Series “Schitt’s Creek” Completes Historic Sweep at 72nd Emmy Awardsby Miranda Priestly Hey, I'm web Developer
Canadian sitcom Schitt’s Creek has been awarded Best Comedy series award at the 72nd edition of Primetime Emmy Awards in recognition of its outstanding belly tickling situational comedy.The award became a cherry on the top as it completed a historical sweep in all major comedy genre award categories. Most of the cast received a nod with the likes of Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Catherine O’Hara, and Annie Murphy all coming out winners in their respective categories. Daniel Levy should have the biggest smile on his face as he heard his name as a winner in writing as well as direction category. The later one he shared with Andrew Cividino with whom he had collaborated in helming the project.
Schitt’s Creek has now written its name in the history books as the first show ever to win every single major award at the Emmys.
The final season ended the journey of the Rose family on a very high note, concluding every character arc on a happy ending. It had received a total of 15 nominations which was three times the number it had received last year. However, it was the first instance when the sitcom was able to bag the biggest award in the comedy genre and with it, it established an imprint of long-lasting legacy.
In 15 nominations, Eugene and O’Hara spearheaded the team in the Lead Actor and Actress category. The mastermind of the show Daniel Levy received the nod in Best Supporting Actor in comedy series with Annie Murphy winning it in Best Actress category, and along with that, it received two nominations in comedy writing and one in comedy directing, comedy casting, non-prosthetic contemporary makeup, contemporary hairstyling, contemporary costumes, editing, and sound mixing.
It was a familiar name in the Creative Arts Awards as well, with the sitcom winning the award in the contemporary series casting during the fourth night of the award ceremony and contemporary costumes award during the fifth (final) night, i.e., on Saturday.
Following on the footsteps of Sofia Vergara and Ty Burrell starrer “Modern Family”, “Schitt’s Creek” became the first family sitcom after internationally renowned HBO series to win the Comedy Series Emmy Award. The former had won it in 2014.
Competing with the winning sitcom were high quality shows such as NBC’s Kristen Bell starrer “Good Place”, Rachel Brosnan starrer Amazon Prime show Marvelous “Mrs Maisel,” an FX show “What We Do in the Shadows,” Larry David starrer HBO show “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and Issa Rae’s show “Insecure” ( also an HBO product).
From Netflix’s side, “Dead to Me” and “The Kominsky Method” were the nominees in the category.
Schitt’s Creek, though a CBC television product, but all the six seasons of the show can be streamed on Netflix (Unlimited) and Amazon Prime (pay per watch).
It was a weird award show with no audience, and people connecting through video conferencing, but Jimmy Kimmel handled the awkwardness really well with his comedic virtuosity and sensitivity. Disney+ show “The Mandalorian” and HBO shows “Watchmen”, and “Succession” have been some well-deserved winners from Sunday night’s unprecedented award ceremony.
