Schitt's Creek became the first comedy series to win all of the four main acting categories in a single year, as well as the first comedy or drama series to win all seven major awards (Series, Acting, Writing, and Directing) in a single year. They also won two additional awards at the Creative Arts Emmys, becoming the most awarded comedy in a single year. Dan Levy also became the first person to win an award in all four major disciplines (Series, Acting, Directing, and Writing) in a single year.
I highly recommend “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and the “challenger” documentary on Netflix. I had to turn Adam Sandler’s new movie off. I can’t wait to see the Borat film, I loved the first and hear this one is living up to the billing. Sasha Baron Cohen is having a nice few months here.
I also finished “The Haunting of Bly Manor” and would recommend that as well. The first 5 episodes were a little slow for me, but the final episodes pulled it together and was an enjoyable watch. Another netflix series.
