Catherine O'Hara Reveals How 'Schitt's Creek' Character Moria Rose Would Accept Emmy Award

Catherine O’Hara is a winner!

The 66-year-old won her first acting Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the 2020 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 20) for her portrayal of Moira Rose on Schitt’s Creek.

After the ceremony, Catherine joked that her outlandish and over the top character “would have accepted the ‘Emmanuel’ in a very different way.”

“I think Moira would’ve done some kind of acceptance from the bed, like Joan Crawford,” Catherine shared with People. “Something very dramatic. I’m lucky I’m not her. I got to be with my friends.”

Catherine continued: “I love that idea that maybe Moira would have accepted —virtually, with no audience— and imagined they were [giving a standing ovation] in their homes.”

Speaking in her Moira accent, Catherine imagined the Rose matriarch saying something like, “‘Please, sit down! Please, sit down! I must continue! Please! I have some thank yous!’”

Schitt’s Creek was the big winner of the night, sweeping all seven trophies in the Comedy categories.
