Congratulations, bébé! The cast of Schitt's Creek scored quite a few wins from the Canadian Screen Awards, including the Rose family matriarch, Catherine O'Hara. She won herself an award for the fifth year in a row and her video acceptance speech has total Moira vibes.
The 2020 Canadian Screen Awards were originally set to be held in March but got postponed to a virtual presentation schedule in May.
From May 25 to 28, winners are being live-streamed on the Canadian Academy's Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels.
May 27 saw the cast of Schitt's Creek swoop the winning board, with Catherine O'Hara winning Best Actress in a comedy for the fifth year in a row for her role as Moira Rose.
The 66-year-old gave an iconic virtual acceptance speech in her typical hilarious fashion, with a hint of her Schitt's Creek character.
"Wow thank you, kind Canadian Screen Academy members...I feel like one very lucky lady to have worked on Schitt's Creek," O'Hara said before speech wrap up music began suddenly playing in the background.
Looking around in confusion, the actress mumbled to herself but continued speaking. "With my dear friend Eugene Levy and his infinitely talented son, Daniel. And the wonderful writers and directors and our dreamy castmates and crew members."
As the music continued getting louder, O'Hara matched the pitch in her voice in order to keep up and eventually turned to fully singing her speech. After admitting defeat to the music trying so desperately to get her to wrap up, she eventually yelled, "Okay! Thank you, thank you."
It's basically what Moira totally would have done if she was cut short while thanking the cast and crew who worked on The Crows Have Eyes 3: The Crowening.

O'Hara's on-screen husband also took home an award for Best Actor in a comedy.
"Well, I can't say that I'm not shocked because I am. Stunned, would be a better word," Eugene Levy opened up in his video acceptance speech. "This is not helping my relationship with my son, who has been knocking it out of the park on the show since day one, in terms of comedy performance."
Levy continued, "This has been a great learning experience for me, working with this group of extremely talented actors. And it's been a joy working with them in front of the camera and everyone behind the camera for six years on the show."

The six-season-long sitcom also won itself an award for Best Comedy, and creators Eugene and Dan Levy shared words of thanks to their fellow cast and crew members.
"We are so grateful for the recognition and I want to dedicate this award to our incredible team of over 145 beautiful Canadians," Dan said in his video. "We would not be here without you and we love you all so much and we miss you."
Father Eugene added thanks to the CBC network and their support for the series, as well as Pop TV for airing the show in the US, ITV in the UK, and the Canada Media Fund for supporting them throughout the years.
"Finally, I want to thank my magnificent partner Daniel Levy, who's done such a great job in getting this show to where it currently is, which is an exceedingly good place," the Rose family patriarch added.

Also sweeping the board is Emily Hampshire, the hilarious face behind Rosebud Motel manager, Stevie Budd. She won Best Supporting Actress in a comedy for the fifth year in a row.
In her video speech, Hampshire shared, "I am so grateful to be on this show. I am so grateful to get to play Stevie. I am so sad that it's over, and just thank you Dan, Eugene, CBC."
"this feels extra specially special." - @emilyhampshire https://t.co/NcI8Tmz5u7— Schitt's Creek (@Schitt's Creek)1590677963.0
