Watch Dan Levy Get Emotional, Political in Historic Emmys Speeches

Dan Levy from Schitt's Creek at 2020 Emmys

The Canadian series Schitt's Creek swept the comedy category of the Emmy awards. On Sunday night, the show took home all seven of the comedy awards. This added to the two awards the show had previously been awarded. In all, the nine trophies made history as the most awards of a comedy series in its final season. This comes as the show had already made history with the most nominations (15) of a comedy series in its final season.

Dan Levy plays multiple roles on the show. He is both a star with David Rose, a co-creator with his father Eugene Levy, the head of the Writer's Room, and he made his directorial debut with the series. The first episode of season six was Dan's debut as a solo director. He was awarded in every aspect of his contributions to the show. 

As a result, Levy gave four different awards speeches dressed in a custom Thom Browne suit, similar to the one he won in the finale of Schitt's. At points he seemed to become visible emotional — possibly on the brink of tears — and at others he went political. Each time, he had to remove his socially-distanced mask to give his words. Watch the speeches below.
