The world might be on fire but there's at least one thing to smile about: Schitt's Creek is finally an Emmy nominee.
On Tuesday, July 16, The Good Place favorite D'Arcy Carden and The Masked Singer judge Ken Jeong announced the nominees for the 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards. The beloved Canadian sitcom, which airs on Pop TV in the U.S., snagged not one but four nominations: Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Eugene Levy), Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (Catherine O'Hara), and Outstanding Contemporary Costumes (for the episode "The Dress"). This is the first nomination for the show, which aired its fifth season early in 2019.
Dan Levy and Annie Murphy may have been snubbed — give everyone on this show an Emmy, dammit — but this is easily the best news of the week. Leave it to Dan Levy, who co-created the series with his father, Eugene, to capture our exact sentiments in just four letters. "OMFG," he tweeted after the nominations were revealed. Same, Dan. Same.
The show's official Twitter also responded to the thrilling news, first by tweeting "oh wow okay," and then by thanking voters.

A massive thank you to the @TelevisionAcad and everyone who voted!
Schitt's Creek returns for its sixth and final season on Pop TV sometime next year.
