"Schitt's Creek's" Levy, O'Hara win Emmys
After 45 years of nothing-but-funny and a six-year run down "Schitt's Creek," Catherine O'Hara has an acting Emmy.
O'Hara won the Emmy Award for best actress in a TV comedy for her role as Rose family matriarch Moira on "Schitt's Creek" on Sunday night.
Jennifer Aniston presented the award, the first handed out at Sunday night's ceremony, from Staples Center, and O'Hara accepted in a remote restaurant-like pavilion with the "Schitt's Creek" cast in face masks and formalwear around her.
A man in a black tie hazard suit handed her the trophy.
"May you have as much joy being holed up in a room or two with your dear family as I have with my dear Roses here," an emotional O'Hara said.
Her co-star, Eugene Levy, won his first acting Emmy Sunday for “Schitt’s Creek” to his first acting Emmy.
Levy won the Emmy Award for best actor in a comedy series on Sunday night for Pop TV’s “Schitt’s Creek,” taking home the trophy for the sixth and final season of the show he co-created with his son, Dan Levy.
“It’s kind of ironical that the straightest role I’ve ever played lands me an Emmy for a comedy performance. So now I seriously have to question what I’ve been doing for the past 50 years,” said Levy.
With Levy’s win, “Schitt’s Creek” takes the first two Emmys of the evening.
He accepted the trophy in a remote, restaurant-like pavilion surrounded by his cast mates including his longtime collaborator Catherine O’Hara, who minutes earlier won best actress in a comedy series for playing his wife on the show.
