Schitt’s Creek wins big at last night’s Emmys with 7 comedy awards

Schitt’s Creek wins big at last night’s Emmys with 7 comedy awards

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards took place virtually last night with Schitt’s Creek coming out on top 


The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards took place virtually last night for the first time.

Hosted in downtown Los Angeles by Jimmy Kimmel, nominees and winners appeared via video feed from their homes.

It was a record-setting night with fan favourite Schitt’s Creek taking home all seven of the major comedy categories. The show had never won an Emmy before but last night took home all four acting awards, and the directing, writing, and outstanding comedy gongs. Zendaya, star of HBO’s Euphoria, became the youngest person ever to win Outstanding lead actress in a drama series at 24.

After a stellar second season, Succession took home the awards for outstanding drama series, direction and writing. While Jeremy Strong won outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his role as Kendall Roy on the show.

Unfortunately, there were no Irish winners on the night. BBC’s Normal People was nominated in three categories, with Paul Mescal getting a nod for his role as Connell in the outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie category. The Kildare native watched the proceedings from home wearing Louis Vuitton. Mark Ruffalo took home the award for his performance in I Know This Much Is True.
