The cast of Schitt's Creek had an absolutely amazing night at the 2020 Emmy Awards on Sept. 20. The beloved Canadian series swept all the top comedy categories! The lovingly named "Schitt's sweep" caused a celebration online for many, including Canadians, members of the LGBTQ+ community and Hollywood stars.
Fellow Canadian Sandra Oh appeared to be as excited for the Schitt's Creek cast's big win at the Emmys as she was for her own nomination at the awards ceremony. (Killing Eve received eight nods.) The actress tweeted as Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Dan Levy, Annie Murphy and the rest of the Schitt's Creek cast and crew cleaned up the Emmy comedy awards.
"Woo hoo!!! Congratulations @SchittsCreek!! Catherine Eugene & Dan! 3 Canadian sweep!!!" Sandra tweeted as the awards came in.
