Emmys 2020: Andrew Cividino and Daniel Levy win Outstanding Director for a Comedy Series for 'Schitt's Creek'
It seems that there is no beating 'Schitt's Creek' which is now in the lead of bagging the most Primetime Emmys this year
Even though the pandemic has stopped many productions around the world, one of the entertainment's biggest nights, the 72nd annual Emmy Awards is still a highlight — with social distancing in mind of course. Host Jimmy Kimmel records from Downtown Los Angeles as nominees, presenters and the winners are cut to during the virtual event.
With 'Schitt's Creek' having bagged three awards in the comedy category already — Outstanding Comedy Actress, Outstanding Comedy Actor, and Comedy Writing — this doesn't come as a surprise.
Andrew Cividino and Daniel Levy have bagged the award in the category of Outstanding director for a comedy series and were presented the award by Kimmel himself. They won for 'Schitt's Creek' episode titled 'Happy Ending'. These wins for the series is a very deserving one, and many are glad that the show is getting recognized to an extreme this year. It seems that there is no beating 'Schitt's Creek' which is now in the lead of bagging the most Primetime Emmys this year.
