Eugene Levy shares Canadian pride after Schitt's Creek's 15 Emmy nominations

The cast and crew of Schitt's Creek are celebrating after finding out they're up for an incredible 15 nominations at the 2020 Emmy Awards.

The show's much-loved co-creator, Eugene Levy, was feeling patriotic after receiving the news today. 

"My God, I guess Canada kicked some ass on this one," said the Ontario-born star in a reaction interview with arts reporter and film critic  Eli Glasner

Meanwhile, Eugene's son and Schitt's Creek co-creator, Dan, also took to social media to celebrate.

All four leads — Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy — are nominated for their performances in the Canadian comedy series. 

Other nods for the show include outstanding casting, contemporary costumes, and contemporary hairstyling.

The series follows the formerly wealthy Rose family who are forced to relocate to Schitt's Creek, a small town they once purchased as a joke.

Many Canadian fans have taken to social media today to share their love for the hilarious homegrown show.

All that's left now is to wish the cast and crew good luck for the digital Emmy Awards ceremony, which will take place on Sunday, Sept. 20.
