Moira Rose would be so proud!

Schitt's Creek star Catherine O'Hara won the award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical at the 2021 Golden Globes. And, believe it or not, it was her first-ever win at the Globes for her iconic turn as the Rose family matriarch on the beloved Pop TV series.

And, of course, she delivered her acceptance speech with a martini in hand. 

"Thank you, thank you!" O'Hara gushed while virtually accepting her awards, before going on to say she was "happily and seriously indebted" to her onscreen husband and son, Eugene and Daniel Levy, who created Schitt's Creek

"From day one, they treated me like something like this might happen!" she said. "They created an inspiring, funny, beautiful family love story in which they let me wear a hundred wigs and speak like an alien. From the first read-through where no one had to fake a laugh to  the final day on set where everyone, except me, had to hold back their tears. It's an experience that I will forever hold dear to my heart and I am proud to be part of their family."

O'Hara also went on to share a sweet message about Schitt's Creek, which ended its six-season run in April of last year, bringing joy to people while quarantining due to the Coronavirus pandemic.



"While we were sheltering in place, Netflix brought the show around the world and I'm very happy that our family in lockdown might have comforted you and yours," she said. "I hope that it will not take you six years to realize your greatest asset is having each other to love."

Of course, as she was delivering her speech, O'Hara's husband Bo Welch blasted applause from his phone at various moments. Johnny Rose would not be amused!

O'Hara's big win comes after Schitt's Creek swept the Emmys in September, taking home every major award in the comedy category.

O'Hara beat out Emily in Paris' Lily Collins, The Flight Attendant's Kaley Cuoco, The Great's Elle Fanning and Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist's Jane Levy to take home the award.
