What can we say about our beloved fave Schitt’s Creek’s Emmy sweep? Well as Alexis would put it: Wow. Wow. Wow-ee!
As we said before, the Schitt’s Creek final season was a perfect sendoff for fans, and it’s amazing to see all that hard work rewarded by the Emmy’s. It’s a true crime that the show hasn’t been given an Emmy in the past at all – which makes it even more amazing when they set an Emmy record tonight for sweeping the writing, directing, all four acting and comedy series categories.
We were screaming with joy, and so were fans everywhere. Even the Schitt’s Creek Twitter account shared a happily surprised post about the night’s turn of events.
Schitt’s Creek is one of the most heart-warming and well-written shows on television, and it deserves all the accolades. As do its cast and crew.
One of the best parts of the evening was the cast of Schitt’s Creek gathering in person to watch the Emmy’s. That poor awards deliverer was busy for the first part of the show, but at least she didn’t have to travel far in that hazmat suit.
We got to see just how proud and loving this cast was of each other. When all of the cast accepted their award, you could see Dan Levy just beaming with pride behind each of them.
And can we talk about the father-son duo of Eugene and Dan Levy? Their absolute love for each other had us in our feels all night.
Best lead actors
Though it is rare for a TV series to sweet all four of the acting awards, the Schitt’s Creek cast absolutely earned their trophies. We only wish there was an award for the rest of the ensemble, because they all truly made the show wonderful.
Catharine O’Hara created a beautiful character in Moira Rose. She spoke with an accent that was unique in and of itself, and her flare for dramatic drove a lot of the comedy in the show. Yet through the years, we got to see Moira grow not only as a person, but as a wife and mother. Her relationship with her family at the end of the series was not what it was in the beginning, and O’Hara brought a lot of heart to the role. And in a perfect world – the Crowening would also be released as a short film and she’d win an Oscar for it.
Eugene Levy brought so much heart to the final season of Schitt’s Creek. Especially the scenes between Johnny and Stevie, when he took the young businesswoman under his wing and basically became her adopted dad. Also, he really stretched his wings as a father this season, comforting Alexis when she was hurt, and bonding with Patrick before he married David.
Best Supporting Actors
Of all the characters that changed during the entire series, Alexis Rose probably was the most significant. And Annie Murphy brought her to life in the most amazing way. Annie could have earned the trophy for the break up scene between Alexis and Ted alone. It was so bittersweet and heartbreaking, and she deserves all the recognition for it.
Dan Levy as David Rose is a gift to the world, and it’s nice that the world is finally acknowledging that fact. David has a lot of bravado, but he is also one of the most vulnerable characters on the show. This came to light this year with his scenes preparing for his wedding with Patrick, and deciding whether or not to leave Schitt’s Creek.
Dan swept the night, also winning for writing and directing. And he also won the night with his amazing suit, that was a grey version of David’s wedding outfit. We loved it! He deserves all the awards that he got for bringing this show about love to the world. The show also won for Outstanding Comedy Series.
“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,” he said in his acceptance speech.
We couldn’t agree more. Schitt’s Creek was all about love – of a family, a community, friendships, and romances between couples. And for its fans.
We all can’t wait to see what these actors and the creatives behind the show will do next. We’ll be there for it.
