The 37-year-old began by congratulating the show’s “amazing cast and crew,” most of whom he said were watching from their homes in Canada.
“We are so grateful to all of you for it," he added.
Levy then went on to call for more diversity overall in next year’s Golden Globe nominations and ceremony, noting that "inclusion can bring about growth and love to a community."
"I hope that this time next year, this ceremony reflects the true breadth and diversity of the film and television being made today, because there is so much more to be celebrated," he said.
Dan Levy, alongside Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy all received nominations for their Schitt’s Creek performances in their respective categories.
It’s not the first time the show has totally swept an awards ceremony, either.
