And so did the fans:

Schitt's Creek has brought joy to so many people across the world throughout its six seasons. Dan Levy's ability to beautifully execute the representation so many people desperately needed to see on their TV screens is one of the many reasons why this cast deserves to win. (The show is also just really freaking funny.)
