Eugene and Dan Levy, the father-son duo who co-created and co-starred in the Emmy Award-sweeping CBC comedy Schitt's Creek, have been named Entertainers of the Year by Entertainment Weekly.  

EW called 2020 "a monumental year" for Dan and Eugene. "Love this journey for them, indeed."

Others included in EW's list include Kelly Washington, Pedro Pascal, Sacha Baron Cohen, Chadwick Boseman and Taylor Swift.

In the interview with EW, Dan and Eugene shared their experiences on set, funny anecdotes off-stage as well as some heart-felt feelings toward each other.

"I've never had to prove myself. I've never had to explain myself and that, fundamentally, is the support that every father needs to give their son," said Dan in the EW interview.

"Particularly where the son is a gay or queer person, because that relationship is crucial. And I think for a lot of people, they don't get that support from their fathers. I'm grateful."

The audience's love for the Rose family extended onto the Levy's, from their family bond and creative journey to their eyebrows. 

Dan also landed on People's Sexiest Man Alive list in November. The star joked to the magazine that it's a "niche market." Maybe, funny is just the new sexy. 

You can watch all six seasons of Schitt's Creek for free, on CBC Gem.
