The Schitt's Creek cast swept up a ton of awards during the Emmys on Monday, but it wasn't the first win for Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara. The longtime friends, who play onscreen couple Johnny and Moira Rose on the hit series, have been working together since the '70s and actually earned their first Emmy together. In 1982, they took outstanding writing in a variety or music program for their work on the Canadian television sketch comedy show Second City Television.

While they already have Emmys for writing, their recent wins at the 2020 award show marks their first acting Emmys — Eugene took home outstanding lead actor in a comedy series and Catherine nabbed outstanding lead actress in a comedy series. The cast also took home outstanding comedy series. Talk about full circle! In honour of their big night, we couldn't help but relieve their first Emmy win. Let's just say, it's one heck of a throwback. See the cute photo ahead.
