(Newser) Schitt's Creek, the little Canadian show about a fish-out-of-water family, made history at Sunday's Emmy Awards with a comedy awards sweep, something even TV greats including Frasier and Modern Family failed to achieve, the AP reports. The awards for the Pop TV series included best comedy series and trophies for its stars, including Catherine O'Hara and father-son duo Eugene and Daniel Levy. “It is absolutely incredible. I think my dad said it best earlier this evening: it’s a dream you don’t want to wake up from, to be honest. What an absolutely unbelievable way to end our series,” Daniel Levy said backstage. In his acceptance speech, he said the sitcom was about "the transformational effects of love and acceptance, and this is something we need more now than ever before,” encouraging people to register and vote to achieve that goal. Other winners, including Watchmen star Regina King, made a point that the Nov. 3 general election was near. Click here for the complete list of winners, or read on for more from the ceremony:
