Canadian Screen Awards: Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara to Get Career Tributes
The 'Schitt's Creek' co-stars will honored by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television on Feb. 25 at the Four Seasons Hotel.
American Pie star Eugene Levy and fellow SCTV alum Catherine O'Hara are to receive career tributes from the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television during a pre-Oscar party in Beverly Hills on Feb. 25.
Levy and O'Hara, who co-star in the Schitt's Creek comedy on Pop (formerly TV Guide Network), are to receive Legacy Awards during the An Evening With Canada's Stars celebration at the Four Seasons Hotel. Levy and O'Hara have been frequent co-stars in Christopher Guest movies including Best in Show and A Mighty Wind after first meeting at Second City in Toronto.
"Though they are not an official duo, they have played together so often and so well that we thought it only fitting to honor them together," Academy chair Martin Katz said Tuesday in a statement. Levy has appeared in more than 60 movies, including Bringing Down the House, Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and Father of the Bride Part 2.
He will also voice the role of Dory’s father in the upcoming Disney Pixar feature Finding Dory with fellow Canadian actor Ellen DeGeneres. O’Hara's film credits include Beetlejuice, Home Alone and Lost in New York, and she has made TV guest appearances on Six Feet Under and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Schitt's Creek nabbed 14 nominations for the upcoming Canadian Screen Awards, which are set to take place March 13 in Toronto.
