The Canadian comedy series Schitt’s Creek is much capable of maintaining its Emmys streak for the Golden Globe Awards
Schitt’s Creek broke Emmy records by winning the maximum awards in one season. The show won big in all seven categories of nomination. It bagged awards for Best Comedy Series, all four lead and supporting awards, and prizes for its writing and directing. While the Golden Globe has a different selection process the show still has a good chance for many reasons.
The creators of the show are Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy, who also play the father-son duo on-screen (as Johnny Rose and David Rose). The other main characters of the story are Catherine O’Hara (as Moira Rose) and Annie Murphy (as Alexis Rose). It is a six-season compilation which you can find on Netflix. The huge fan following of the show is an outcome of the unprecedented transition of a mundane storyline into an enticing one. Here are 5 reasons why Schitt’s Creek should dominate Golden Globes after the Emmys.
Watch: The Cast of Schitt’s Creek on Emmys Sweep & Eugene Levy Impressions
1. Depiction of powerful inclusivity
The show’s biggest asset is its power of inclusivity. The creators made it a point to exclude any signs of homophobia on the show. One of the main characters, David (also, one of the creators), unapologetically embraces his pansexuality. The people of the town are not only incredibly approving of his sexuality but also celebrate it as we see in the last season. In the time of rampant homophobia, the show’s comfortable acceptance of homosexuality is something we need to witness with our family.
2. The Riveting Evolution Of Characters
The characters of the story, which arrived in a quaint town with an abundance of misery and anxiety, are soon found to discover an unimaginable journey for themselves. Each one of them organically grows with time at a perfect pace making them likeable as well as relatable. The characters that we encounter as condescending at the beginning start carving out their place in our hearts with the right amount of emotional touch. Even the most ludicrous vocabulary and pronunciation of Moira grows on you as you watch her through the several seasons of the show.
3. The Slice Of Life Narrative
The fish-out-of-water story of the Rose family might be one of the recurrent ones, but what succeeds the tragedy is more than mayhem. It is a saga of pragmatic events, something we missed in an apartment and coffee-house kind of shows. The authenticity of the individual characters and the unfolding of their life will take you by surprise. The less-awkward on-screen chemistry of the couples is eccentric and laudable, with a balanced amount of sophistication. The unadulterated character self-improvement is ultimately a believable one.
4. The Astounding Relatability To The Rose Family
Every family is unique and weird in its own way, yet each one is connected by the ropes of care and hope. This family is no different. An emotionally unavailable mother, an awfully busy father, and two prodigal children, who lived in a billion-dollar mansion earlier, are forced to live in small motel rooms.
The initial hatred for their new abode soon retires as a result of the physical proximity with each other, something they had never experienced before as a family. It is a family, very much like our own, where every member is vividly dissimilar in ideas and opinions. Yet, the story beautifully captures the essence of almost every 21st-century family- different but together.
5. A Cocktail of Emotions Served Throughout Six Seasons
If you are looking for a promising concoction of emotions in one place, this is the show for you. From Moira’s wigs and monochrome ensembles to Alexis’s questionable intelligence, you would not fall short of laughter. David’s romantic relationship is bound to give you goosebumps, if not tears, in certain moments. And Johnny’s sanity and sensibility will restore your faith in the Rose family. The joy, humor, commotion, and amusement of the show are going to keep your family hooked throughout.
6. The Show’s Resonating Ending Is Full Of Hope
The show ends beautifully at a point that consumes you with hope and affection. The family of four ends up following their individual paths of rejuvenation. The not-so-classical ending of the series will undoubtedly leave you craving for more. The captivating topics, themes, and perspectives make a bewitching impression on the minds of the viewers. Once you have finished watching it, you would want to rope in your friends and family too. The show spreads a powerful message of hope, respect, and acceptance.
For reasons afroementioned and more Schitt’s Creek is certainly going to big win this Golden Globe Awards.
