CATHERINE O’HARA’S GOLDEN GLOBES SPEECH WAS COMEDIC PERFECTION, OF COURSE
Let’s not forget, Moira Rose’s favourite season is “awards.”
Catherine O’Hara sticks the landing once again, with her near-legendary commitment to Zoom theatre. The Canadian comedic legend won her first Golden Globe — seriously! — for Best Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy, for her splendiferous work as daytime TV actress and socialite-turned-local smalltown politician, Moira Rose, on “Schitt’s Creek” on Sunday. But it’s her acceptance speech which leaves a real impression.
O’Hara learned of her big win from her couch. And as she was giving her speech, her husband, production designer Bo Welch, began playing generic awards show theme music, stock applause sounds, and even played her off the “stage” as she was deep into her thank yous. READ MORE

Award reaffirms that ‘inclusion can bring about growth and love to a community,’ Dan Levy says
Schitt’s Creek won the Golden Globe for best television comedy on Sunday, shortly after star Catherine O’Hara captured the award for best actress for her portrayal of Moira Rose.
Dan Levy — who co-created the show with his father, Eugene Levy — accepted the award remotely and paid homage to the Canadian cast and crew. “The incredible work you all did over these past six seasons have taken us to places we never thought possible, and we are so grateful to all of you for it,” he said.
“Thank you to the CBC and Pop TV for making the active choice to keep this show on the air and give it the time and space it needed to grow.” READ MORE
GOLDEN GLOBES FOR ‘SCHITT’S CREEK’ AND STAR CATHERINE O’HARA
LOS ANGELES — The love just keeps flowing down “Schitt’s Creek.”
The Canadian comedy series created by the father-son team of Eugene and Dan Levy that dominated September’s Emmy Awards is the winner of the Golden Globe for best comedy or musical TV series.
Dan Levy accepted the award Sunday night, saying that by its final season, “Schitt’s Creek” took him and his cast and crew “to places we never thought possible.”
It was the second Globe of the night for the Pop TV series, after Catherine O’Hara won best actress in a TV musical or comedy series early in the show.
It topped fellow nominees “Ted Lasso,” “The Great,” “The Flight Attendant” and “Emily in Paris.”
Moments earlier, Jason Sudeikis scored a minor upset over Eugene Levy and others when he won the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy series for “Ted Lasso.”
