Canadian sitcom Schitt’s Creek has become one of the most-loved shows on the planet, and it was rightfully honoured with two awards at the 78th Golden Globes.
Created by the father and son duo of Eugene and Dan Levy, the show won the Best TV Series (Musical/Comedy) while Catherine O’ Hara won the Best Actress award.
The 78th annual Golden Globe Awards took place on Sunday night, where Amy Poehler and Tina Fey returned as hosts virtually in New York and Los Angeles.
Dan, during his acceptance speech, said, “I would like to congratulate our amazing cast and crew – most of whom are in Canada right now like myself watching from home – for the critical work you all did over these past six seasons. It has taken us to places we never thought possible. And we are so grateful to all of you for it.”
He added, “Thank you to the CBC and Pop TV for making the active choice to keep this little show on the air and give it the time and space it needed to grow like so many TV shows out there.” He concluded his speech by saying, “In the spirit of inclusion, I hope that this time next year, this ceremony reflects the true breadth and diversity of the film and television being made today, because there is so much more to be celebrated.”
