Simply the Best: Lenny Award Winners 2020

2020 lenny award winnersIn the TV show, Schitt’s Creek, there’s an ongoing inclusion of the song “The Best” by Tina Turner. It pops up in the form of an acoustic serenade, an endearing lip sync, and it even finds its way into a pivotal scene in the show’s finale.

In our last Lenny Award blog post, we talked about how gratifying it is to be acknowledged and appreciated for hard work, and compared it to the success of Schitt’s Creek and their Emmy sweep. Keeping with the Schitt’s Creek theme, we hope you’ll queue up Tina Turner’s hit song as you read through the Lenny Award winners who are simply the best.
