LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Schitt’s Creek” has capped a huge night at the Emmy Awards — completing a clean sweep of the show's comedy categories.

The show won best comedy series and acting trophies for stars Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy.

It's a feat that couldn't quite be matched by drama series winner “Succession,” which won four of trophies.

Zendaya made history as the youngest drama series actress winner.

Sunday's prime-time show includes ambitious live video feeds from 130 socially distanced nominees.

Limited series “Watchmen” was the leading nominee, winning trophies for Regina King and best limited series.
