Critics praised last week’s 62nd Annual Emmy Awards for finally bringing some life to the generally stiff ceremony.
One publication even said that the ceremony finally “entered the 21st century.”
In a letter posted by the Huffington Post, actress Regina King feels it was like every other ceremony.
Since the Emmy ceremony, I have been going back and forth about whether or not I should compose this letter. I try hard in my daily life not to engage in uncomfortable situations regarding race. But sometimes it’s very difficult to find other reasons that better explain why certain events play out the way they do. It is impossible for me to ignore the published statistics regarding the number of people of color mentioned, celebrated or honored in the history of the televised Emmys. Up to and including this year, there have been only 53 non-white actors nominated for Emmys out of nearly 1,000 possible nominations in the top four acting categories for drama and comedy.
We thank Regina for not limiting her outrage to just the lack of representation of black actors, but to all of the Asian, Latino, etc. actors out there working just as hard as their white counterparts!
