‘Schitt’s Creek,’ ‘Last Week Tonight’ and ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ won early honors.

The Producers Guild of America are handed out Wednesday in a virtual ceremony.

Schitt’s Creek won the first award of the night for outstanding comedy TV series, nabbing the honor for its sixth and final season. Star and producer Eugene Levy noted that calling Schitt’s Creek the highlight of his fifty years in the business would be an understatement. “This show has been a joy to work on,” said Levy.

Last Week Tonight‘s John Oliver accepted the award for live entertainment or talk by poking fun of the fact that nominees pre-taped their speeches. Said Oliver: “I’m pre-taping this anticipating we might win. If we haven’t won, please destroy this and pass my congratulations to the real winner, which I’m guessing is Dr. Oz. He’s had quite a year!”

RuPaul’s Drag Race nabbed the game and competition television honor.

Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross opened the show by noting the all-Zoom affair was an awards ceremony unlike anyone could have imagined.

“It has been a year like no other in modern history. But through all the political, scientific and social cries for justice, one thing has remained unchanged, the need to be entertained,” said Ross. “That’s what we as producers and artists do. We entertain.”

The ceremony comes a few days after the PGA revealed the winners in categories during a daylong series of nominee panels hosted by the guild: YouTube’s Defying Gravity: The Untold Story of Women’s Gymnastics was named outstanding sports program, HBO’s The Power of We: A Sesame Street Special won for best children’s program; Apple TV’s Carpool Karaoke: The Series was named best shortform program ; and the guild’s new Innovation Award was given to YouTube’s Burning Man project BRCvr.
