The Emmy's Are Spicing It Up!

Well look at Hollywood, getting their act together. The Emmy’s, Tuesday night, was the time Hollywood finally saw fit to give some of their underrepresented peers a fair chance at winning anything other than best effort. The night showed that along with level breaking inclusiveness through television came...better talents! Who would’ve thought?

‘Master of None’ star Aziz Ansari won the night’s Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series award, along with his Co-Star Lena Waithe becoming the first black woman to win an Emmy for Comedy Writing. Lena Waithe stated in her acceptance speech, “Thank you for embracing a little Indian boy from South Carolina and a little queer black girl from the south side of Chicago.” The night didn’t end with that, Donald Glover also made history by winning two Emmy’s, including Best Directing for a Comedy Series, which has never been won by a black person before him.

Sources say it may have been the voodoo casted by ‘Insecure’ star Issa Rae, when she was asked who she wanted to see win and she responded, “I’m rooting for everybody black.” Whatever it is needs to be kept up because the future of television is looking bright now that people are finally getting their share.
