Schitt's Creek (Nearly) Sweeps LGBTQ+ Dorian TV Awards 

Dorian TV

Schitt's Creek won big at the Dorian TV Awards.

The heartwarming Pop TV show, which wrapped this year, picked up five accolades at the Sunday virtual ceremony celebrating the nominees from GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics. They were Best TV Comedy, Best TV Performance - Actress (Catherine O'Hara), Best Supporting TV Performance - Actress (Annie Murphy), Best Supporting TV Performance - Actor (Dan Levy), and Best LGBTQ TV Show.

At the Dorians TV Toast 2020, Dan Levy thanked GALECA members “for supporting our show from day one. ... It is a great honor to be recognized by all of you, because, let's be honest, you got good taste.”

It was a near sweep of the major categories. Eugene Levy was also nominated for Best TV Performance - Actor, but he lost to Hugh Jackman for his performance as a corrupt gay superintendent in the HBO drama Bad Education.

Schitt's Creek was also nominated for Best TV Musical Performance (Noah Reid, “Always Be My Baby"), but the category went to Janelle Monáe and Billy Porter for the opening number of the 92nd Academy Awards.

Other major winners from the Dorian TV Awards included Killing Eve (Best TV Drama), HBO's Watchmen (Best TV Movie or Limited Series and Most Visually Striking Show), and Best Unsung TV Show (FX's What We Do in the Shadows).
