Emmys: Jeremy Pope & Billy Porter react to nominations as record number of Black actors get nods

View this post on Instagram

Thank you to the Television Academy, my entire HOLLYWOOD family, and to Ryan Murphy for giving me my television debut. My heart is full. ⁣ ⁣ I'm proud to see so many Black artists nominated this year. It gives me hope that systemic change in our entertainment industry is not only possible, it’s imminent. ⁣ ⁣ As an artist, it takes a lot of faith to trust that there is space for the stories I want to tell and that the dreams in my heart are tangible.⁣ ⁣ Today was a reminder that seeing is believing and everything is possible.

Record Number of Black Actors Receive Emmy Award Nominations



(All comments are reviewed before being published, and I review submissions several times per day.)

One Remark

  1. Emmys today mean as little as the Oscars do. People get nominated for programs that few watch (mostly boring) and for work that was made to look good by the editing staff. The network shows are now looked over (because they’re not the “artsy” cable fare. As an actor, I watch the network people grow into roles and become some fine actors, but they are purposely overlooked. I’ve seen these other programs and they are no better than movies where a character can never be endeared to the public, and the time is so short that few can really get interested in the goings-on, and there’s little time to introduce, run, and complete a plot to everyone’s satisfaction. Movies and most cable-fare are too boring for me to appreciate.
