Are you beloved CBC comedy Schitt’s Creek? Well then congrats, my friend, because you just had a hell of a night at the 2020 Emmy Awards!

Domination was the name of the game for the 72nd annual Emmy Awards, with only a handful of shows claiming the lion’s share of trophies in their respective genres. But among those dominant performers, no series was more overpowering than Schitt’s Creek in its final season. The Eugene and Dan Levy-created series went an astonishing seven-for-seven, winning in every category it was nominated in (becoming the first show ever to do so). This included all four acting categories (won by Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Dan Levy, and Annie Murphy), one writing category, one directing category, and the big one: Outstanding Comedy Series.

Following Schitt’s Creek rampage, Watchmen took over the proceedings for a bit. HBO’s latest limited series hit perhaps wasn’t as dominant as initially suspected, losing out on two acting categories (Outstanding Lead Actor went to I Know This Much is True‘s Mark Ruffalo and Outstanding Supporting Actress went to Mrs. America‘s Uzo Aduba). It also couldn’t claim the directing trophy despite having three nominees (that one went to Maria Schrader’s work on Unorthodox – which was deserving but may have been the surprise of the night all the same). Watchmen did, however, pick up the big limited series prize in addition to awards for Regina King, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and writers Damon Lindelof and Cord Jefferson.

Drama may have been the most democratic genre of the night with Julia Garner picking up her second acting award for Ozark, and The Morning Show‘s Billy Crudup and Euphoria‘s Zendaya scoring surprising, but deserving upsets. Still, HBO’s latest drama juggernaut Succession remained in control of every other category, taking home Outstanding Drama Series in addition to writing, directing, and acting (Jeremy Strong) awards.

This year’s Emmys was the first year in a long time in which Game of Thrones wasn’t casting a shadow over the proceedings. Yet even without that high-budget, surefire hit, much of the awards on the night went the “chalk” route with expected winners.
