Emmys 2020: Schitt’s Creek should be the frontrunner for Outstanding Comedy

Schitt’s Creek Season 6 should win an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy

The 2020 Emmy nominations are out, and fans of Schitt’s Creek were pleased to learn that the final season could finally win a primetime award. Season 6 had a whopping 15 nominations after Season 5 only had four. It’s safe to say that the show’s exposure on Netflix and Hulu has certainly put the right eyes on the Canadian comedy.

But of those 15 nominations, which one is Schitt’s Creek most likely to win? The Rose family has plenty of competition in the major categories spanning outstanding comedy, best actor (Eugene Levy), best actress (Catherine O’Hara), supporting actor (Dan Levy), and supporting actress (Annie Murphy).

Competing against the likes of Dead to Me, The Good Place, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is no easy task. However, Schitt’s Creek recently finished telling the beautiful stories of the Rose family, and it’s time they get their due as the best comedy around.

Schitt’s Creek Season 6 culminated in one of the best series finales in recent memory. Moira and John were ready to return to stardom after being humbled. David married the love of his life. Alexis leapt as gracefully as she could out of the nest to live on her own. Stevie blossomed into a well-rounded character with her new-found ambitions. “Happy Ending” is more than worthy of every nomination it received.

As much as viewers wish they could consume new episodes, Dan Levy made the right call by bringing the show to an end before it reached the point of being forced off the air. Every season was well-received with viewership numbers growing year over year instead of trending backward.

Despite being a “very niche” show, Schitt’s Creek defied the odds and is ready to sweep awards season this year. The entertainment industry should send its best wishes and warmest regards to the beloved Rose family one last time because, well, it’s simply the best.
