Quirky feel-good show Schitt's Creek emerged as one of the biggest winner's of the 72nd Emmy Awards, sweeping seven Emmys, including best comedy series and acting awards for Canadian stars Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy.

It was the first time in the Emmy Awards' 72 years that a comedy won all seven categories in the same year, organisers said.

Offbeat Canadian hit "Schitt's Creek" won the Emmy for outstanding comedy series, capping a major sweep in their categories to open the unusual pandemic-era virtual ceremony honoring the best in television.

The “Schitt's Creek” winners got their trophies delivered to a restaurant in Ontario, Canada, where they had gathered to celebrate, by a person dressed in a custom black-and-white hazmat suit, designed to look like a tuxedo.

The coronavirus pandemic meant no red carpet and no physical audience for the show. Instead, producers sent camera kits and microphones to all the nominees, scattered in 125 places around the world, who chose how and where they wanted to be seen.
