Schitts Creek, Succession, 'Watchmen' top Emmy Awards

Schitt's Creek, the little Canadian show about a fish-out-of-water family, made history at Sunday's Emmy Awards with a comedy awards sweep, something even TV greats including Frasier and Modern Family failed to achieve.
Zendaya, 24, became the youngest lead drama actress winner for her role as a troubled teenager in Euphoria."
I know this seems like a really weird time to be celebrating, Zendaya said. But I just want to say there is hope in the young people out there. I know our TV show doesnt always feel like a great example of that, but thanked young people out there doing the work.
Succession, a family power struggle over a media empire, was honored as best drama series, and creator Jesse Armstrong used the opportunity to offer unthanks, including to President Donald Trump for what Armstrong called his crummy handling of the pandemic.
Succession star Jeremy Strong won the drama actor trophy for his role as an aspiring heir.
The awards for Pop TV's Schitt's Creek included best comedy series and trophies for its stars, including Catherine O'Hara and father-son Eugene and Daniel Levy.
It is absolutely incredible. I think my dad said it best earlier this evening: its a dream you dont want to wake up from, to be honest. What an absolutely unbelievable way to end our series, Daniel Levy said backstage.
In his acceptance speech, he said the sitcom was about "the transformational effects of love and acceptance, and this is something we need more now than ever before, encouraging people to register and vote to achieve that goal.
Other winners, including Watchmen star Regina King, made a point that the Nov 3 general election was near.
