The last time a show won the top Emmy trifecta of Best Comedy Series, Best Comedy Actress and Best Comedy Actor in the same year, it was 2008. The second season of NBC’s “30 Rock” achieved this rare feat when leads Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin took home prizes along with the series itself. Will the buzzed-about final season of Pop’s “Schitt’s Creek” enter the Emmy history books by claiming Comedy Series, Comedy Actress (Catherine O’Hara) and Comedy Actor (Eugene Levy) at the 2020 ceremony?
According to Gold Derby’s 24 Emmy Experts from major media outlets, these 17 predict Levy will win for playing failed businessman Johnny Rose: Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Debbie Day (Rotten Tomatoes), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Tim Gray (Variety), Chris Harnick (E!), Libby Hill (Indiewire), Matthew Jacobs (HuffPo), Kelly Lawler (USA Today), Wilson Morales (BlackFilm), Mary Murphy (Gold Derby), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Robert Rorke (unaffiliated), Kaitlin Thomas (TVGuide.com), Anne Thompson (Indiewire), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Ken Tucker (Yahoo) and Susan Wloszczyna (Gold Derby). This would be Levy’s third Emmy after winning two for writing “SCTV Network 90” (1982, 1983).
