Eugene accepted the award from the Schitt's Creek watch party, taking the mic to declare, "You see, I told you I was good!" before noting, "I guess it's kind of ironic that the straightest role I ever played lands me an Emmy for a comedy performance."
"So now I seriously have to question just what i've been doing for the past 50 years," Eugene added, going on to thank his wife and the show's production team, writers and cast. "And as a dad, getting to work on camera for six years with both of my kids Daniel and Sarah...such a joy. Love you both and could not be prouder."
Eugene continued, making sure to give a special shout-out to his son: "That brings me to my multi-Emmy nominated partner, Daniel Levy, who took our show that we came up with and brilliantly guided it to this little Emmy party tonight. So thank you son and thank you Academy."
Levy's Emmy is a long time coming, as it's not only his first since 1982, but his very first acting award ever.
What a great way to say goodbye to Schitt's Creek and the beloved Rose family!
