Network erupts with criticism of EMMY 2021: All those nominations, but no actor of color left at home award
Of the 12 acting categories at the Emmy Awards ceremony, no actor of color won an award for performance, despite the record number of nominees for this year.
However, the racial composition of the show that attracted the most attention this year including roles in "The Crown", "Ted Lasso", "Mare of Eastton", "Hacks" and "The Queen's Gambit", was mainly dominated by groups of actors colorless actress.
Even Emmy presenter Cedric Entertainer made a joke hinting at how difficult it is for a colored candidate to win an award for performance.
"The good news is that there are a lot of people of color nominated tonight," said Cedric Entertainer. "Like my Anthony Anthony ... This is Anthony's 11th nomination, but tonight he is against Michael Douglas and Ted Lasso. Good luck, partner, but I have to say, it still seems hard here for a tutor. "
While the show itself featured a range of different presenters, the first hour only rewarded white performers. RuPaul Charles became the first colored Emmy Award winner. He spoke on stage after winning his 11th prize for the outstanding competition program for "RuPaul's Drag Race" - surpassing cinematographer Donald A. Morgan and making him the most decorated artist of color at the Emmy Awards.
Some people on social media criticized Academy of Television Arts and Sciences voters for robbing the awards of a handful of nominated actors, writers and artists of color - given the increased control of representation at entertainment awards shows in recent years.
Ndërsa asnjë person me ngjyrë nuk fitoi një çmim aktrimi të Dielën, disa shfaqje me një kast kryesisht jo të bardhë morën disa çmime, përfshirë Charles për "RuPaul's Drag Race", Michaela Coel për shkrim të jashtëzakonshëm në serialin "I May Destroy You" dhe " Hamilton "për varietetin e jashtëzakonshëm të veçantë. Debbie Allen gjithashtu u nderua me Çmimin prestigjioz të Guvernatorëve.
Gloria Calderón Kellett, bashkë-krijuese e "Një ditë në një kohë", i kërkoi publikut të shikojë përbërjen racore të fituesve të çmimeve Emy, si një reflektim i përparimit, ose mungesës në Hollivud.
