Nominated for a record-breaking 26 trophies at the 2020 Canadian Screen Awards, beloved TV show Schitt’s Creek—which wrapped its sixth and final season last month—took home six of the night’s biggest honours.

Additionally, Lisa Parasyn and Jon Comerford won for Best Achievement in Casting, and Annastasia Cucullo and Ana Sorys won the Best Achievement in Hair award for their work on the Season 5 episode “Life is a Cabaret.” Catch Dan Levy, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara’s acceptance speeches (taped from their homes, of course) on the Schitt’s Creek Instagram account here.

Other comedy hits that won big include The Baroness von Sketch Show, which took home all the five awards for which it was nominated in the Variety or Sketch Comedy category, and Kim’s Convenience and Letterkenny earned two awards each. On the drama side, Anne with an E, which also recently ended its run, won five awards. Murder mystery Cardinal took home seven awards during the virtual ceremony including best drama series, best writing for a drama series, and best lead actor and lead actress in a drama series.
