‘Schitt’s Creek’ Sweeps Comedy Category At Emmys

Catherine O’Hara finally got her well-deserved Emmy for playing Moira Rose on “Schitt’s Creek”.

The first award of the 72nd Emmys went to O’Hara who accepted from a small gathering with her castmates in Toronto.

“Can you believe Eugene Levy has a microphone in his bedroom?” she joked as a trophy presenter in a tuxedo hazmat suit passed her the award.

O’Hara thanked her costume and wig team — vital contributors to the creation of Moira’s iconic looks.

In keeping with her character, O’Hara infused some of her extensive vocabulary in the speech.

This was O’Hara’s second Emmy; she hasn’t won since 1982 when she won with Eugene Levy for their writing on “Second City”.

Eugene Levy followed it up by taking home the second award of the night.

“That brings me to my multi-nominated partner Daniel Levy,” he said while talking about how he created the show. “Thank you, son.”

The fun didn’t stop there, as Daniel won for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy.

Annie Murphy continued the rout of the comedy section with her win for Outstanding Best Supporting Actress; unsurprisingly, the award for Outstanding Comedy went to “Schitt’s Creek”.

“I can’t believe Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara are my friends,” Murphy said while accepting her award.

The nine wins set a new record for the most in one year, passing “Frasier”‘s six wins in 2004.

Mariah Carey celebrated the crew.

And Ramy Youssef shared a look at what happens when you lose.
