Annie Murphy took home the Emmy for supporting actress in a comedy series for Schitt’s Creek during Sunday night’s Primetime Emmy Awards.
Murphy beat out fellow nominees Betty Gilpin (GLOW), D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), Yvonne Orji (Insecure),Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Marin Hinkle (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel),Kate McKinnon(Saturday Night Live) and Cecily Strong (Saturday Night Live).
“The six years that I’ve spent working on this show have been the best six years of my entire life, and I am so, so proud of the cast and crew and the writers,” Murphy said upon accepting the award, adding that she can’t believe she can call her co-stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara friends.
“I’m so proud of a show that stands for love and kindness and inclusivity and acceptance because those four things are things that we need more than ever right now,” she added.
The 72nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards is airing live on ABC from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Jimmy Kimmel is hosting.
