The 2017 Prime Time Emmy’s Make Black History!

Posted by: cnikky

The 2017 Prime time Emmy Awards were held last night and history was made!  Lena Waithe became the first black woman to win an Emmy for Best Comedic Writer!!  She teamed up with Master of None star and creator Aziz Ansari for the fantastic episode on season 2 of his Netflix series, entitled ‘Thanksgiving.’ The episode delves into the traditions of the typical black family on Thanksgiving and the semi-autobiographical story of how she came out to her family.  It was my favorite episode of the season and I couldn’t be happier for Lena and Aziz!

Cover Girl Issa Rae – Best Make-Up and Hair

In addition to their win, Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) won for Best Actor and Director in a Comedy Series for Atlanta, Sterling K Brown won for This is Us,  Riz Ahmed won for his incredible performance in the mini series The Night Of, Ava Duvernay won for her documentary on Netflix the 13th and rapper Common won for Best Song for the title track to the same documentary.   Big Little Lies won ‘big’ along with the new Hulu series A Handmaids Tale.
