It’s a Rose family reunion at the Emmy Awards, where Schitt’s Creek has swept the comedy categories. In an outpouring of respect and love for the final season, every member of the Rose family (Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, and Annie Murphy) won their acting category. The series also picked up Best Writing, Best Direction, and Best Comedy series to complete their domination. Schitt’s Creek had a total of 15 nominations this year, with two wins coming early this week at the Creative Arts Emmys. This represents a historic moment: the first time any series, comedy or drama, has swept the acting categories at the Emmys. It is also the most wins in one year for a comedy series.

Despite the event being held virtually due to COVID-19, the Schitt’s Creek cast and crew gathered in Toronto after having negative tests for the virus to celebrate.

First up was Catherine O’Hara winning Best Leading Actress in a Comedy for her iconic performance as Moira Rose:

Next, Eugene Levy won for Best Leading Actor in a Comedy, and his son Daniel was borderline more excited than he was:

Daniel Levy then took home the Best Writing For a Comedy Series prize, shocking him and making the rest of the cast jump to their feet in excitement:

Andrew Cividino and Daniel Levy then jointly won Best Directing For a Comedy Series, again shocking Daniel while being no surprise at all to anyone else in the room:

Daniel Levy then won (for the third consecutive award in a row, if you’re counting) for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series:

To complete the Rose family sweep, a speechless Annie Murphy then took home the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy trophy (we love that journey for her):

Finally ending their evening, the stunned cast and crew were awarded Best Comedy Series:

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Schitt’s Creek – you are all simply the best, and now you’re officially better than all the rest (of the nominees). Check back here for more Emmys coverage!
