Even city landmarks couldn't help but celebrate the Schitt's Creek Emmy sweep. The CN Tower and the new Toronto Sign turned gold to honour the award-winning Canadian show. The tribute did not go unnoticed, as cast members gathered downtown to enjoy the spectacle and join the Schitt's Creek Emmy celebrations in Toronto.

Sunday was a big day for Canada as the heart-warming sitcom broke records at the Primetime Emmy Awards.

The show took home nine awards and broke the record for most Emmys won in a single year.

Wins included Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series, and Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series.

The cast members weren't the only ones showered in gold. Major Toronto landmarks glowed to commemorate the show's success.

A video posted to Instagram by Schitt's Creek producer Amy Segal showed several of the show's cast members snapping photos and enjoying the view.

Toronto local Dan Levy and costar Noah Reid, who played the sitcom's most loveable couple, can be seen beaming up at the golden CN Tower.

Dan Levy also shared an image of him with cast and crew members in front of the tower.

"Our hometown went gold for us tonight. What an honor. Thank you, Toronto!"

John Tory announced that the sign would be lighting up in the show's honour yesterday.

"...Congratulations again to the cast and crew of #SchittsCreek for showing the strength of our local screen industry!" he wrote on Twitter.

The CN Tower also took to Twitter, sharing, "The #CNTower is going gold at the top of the hour tonight to celebrate @SchittsCreek’s #Emmys sweep last night!"

The show, which stole the hearts of viewers across the country, wrapped up with its final season earlier this year.

The last season will finally be arriving on Netflix next month, so it's the perfect excuse to binge the entire series again.
