How ‘Schitt’s Creek’ cast was able to gather for 2020 Emmys amid COVID-19

The cast of “Schitt’s Creek” have gotten a lot of camera time at the 2020 Emmys thanks to their impressive winning sweep on Sunday night.

But how were they able to gather together for the virtual award show amid the coronavirus pandemic?

The show’s Instagram account revealed on Sunday that Daniel Levy, Eugene Levy, Annie Murphy, Catherine O’Hara, Noah Reid and Karen Robinson gathered in Toronto, Canada, “adhering to Ontario’s COVID-19 guidelines.”

Dan, 37, the show’s co-creator and co-star alongside his father, Eugene, is from Toronto.

“All in attendance have been in isolation since returning negative COVID-19 tests,” the “Schitt’s Creek” Instagram account added.

During the award show, the group sat in socially-distanced tables and wore face masks, but understandably removed them when giving an acceptance speech.

“Schitt’s Creek” won all seven Primetime awards for comedy, including Outstanding Comedy, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (Annie Murphy), Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (Dan Levy), Directing for a Comedy Series (Andrew Cividino and Dan Levy), Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series (Dan Levy), Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Eugene Levy) and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (Catherine O’Hara).

The Emmys took other precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the award show without a live audience and the nominees tuned in from their own homes.

A rep for the Emmys did not immediately return our request for comment.
