LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Schitt’s Creek” has capped a huge night at the Emmy Awards — completing a historic sweep of the show's comedy categories. The show won best comedy series and acting trophies for stars Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy. It's a feat that couldn't quite be matched by drama series winner “Succession,” which won four trophies. Zendaya made history as the youngest drama series actress winner.  Sunday's prime-time show includes ambitious live video feeds from 130 socially distanced nominees. Although the rise of streaming services including Disney+ and Apple TV+ dominated the TV landscape, it was Emmy stalwart HBO that stole the show.
