Man, oh man, are you kidding me? Wow. Thank you. To all my fellow players. I wanted to thank my mom for taking me to plays and musicals in Kansas City every time they came by, be it a ghost from the opera. I want to thank my dad for taking me to movies. Took me to “Beverly Hills Cop” when I was nine years old, and I knew I wanted to be a black cop in Detroit. I’ll get there. And again, I thank my fellow castmates for making me better for just having the job again. Thanks again, great. ‘
Catherine O’Hara was the recipient of Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her performance on Schitt’s Creek.
I share this with Annie Murphy. I am flattered that anyone could believe I could be her mother. Annie is a beautiful soul, and of course to Eugene and Dan Levy, and they are great writers. Telling their stories gave me and everyone in the city from which I am currently estranged every possible opportunity to love, be loved, fool ourselves and thrive to be the best we can be. As if that wasn’t enough, now this, thank you. ‘
