Schitt’s Creek makes history yet again with huge, huge wins at SAG Awards

Schitt's Creek Stars Dan, Eugene and Sarah Levy

Schitt’s Creek won big at the 27th Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday (4 April), taking home the award for Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

Catherina O’Hara, who plays Moira Rose in the hit series, which recently ended after its sixth season, also won the award for Best Comedy Actress.

Dan Levy, who stunned on the virtual red carpet in a cream suit by The Row followed by an incredible burgundy Dries Van Noten outfit, appeared with fellow Schitt’s Creek stars dad Eugene Levy and sister Sarah Levy to accept the ensemble award.

He said: “Oh my goodness, to get to share this award with my brilliant sister and my incredible dad is absolutely extraordinary.

“Thank you so much to SAG-AFTRA for this insane honour.”

He added: “What a way to say goodbye.”

O’Hara said in her acceptance speech that she would “share” the award with Annie Murphy, who plays Alexis Rose and was also nominated for Best Comedy Actress.

She continued: “I’m flattered anyone might believe I could be her mother. Annie is a beautiful soul.

“And of course, for Eugene and Daniel Levy and their amazing writers. Their hilariously empathic storytelling gave me and everyone in the town from which I am currently estranged every possible chance to love, be loved, make happy fools of ourselves and blossom into the best we could be.”

The SAG Awards also saw, for the first time ever, all four film acting awards go to actors of colour.

Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman won best female and male actor in a leading role for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, while Daniel Kaluuya took home best male actor in a supporting role for Judas and the Black Messiah and Youn Yuh-jung won best female actor in a supporting role for her performance in Minari. 

In her speech, Davis thanked the “beautiful Chadwick Boseman”, who passed away from complications related to cancer last year, and writer August Wilson “for leaving a legacy to actors of colour that we can relish for the rest of our life”.
