#TrueTopicsPodcast: POC Representation at The Emmys

 

The Emmys Has Moved to 2024

The ceremony is scheduled to be broadcast on Fox on January 15, 2024, with the Creative Arts Emmys on January 6 and 7, at the Peacock Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, following a delay from September 2023 due to the 2023 Hollywood labor disputes and writers strike. Nominations were originally announced on July 12, 2023.

Actresses like Janelle James from nominated show Abbott Elementary expressed her excitement back in July when the original list of nominations were revealed.

“I am so honored to be recognized along with the other talented nominees by the Television Academy. Living out my dreams of making a living in the arts and sharing the gift of laughter is made that much sweeter working alongside my Abbott cast mates and the fantastic writers and crew on the show” via Entertainment Weekly.

James is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Taraji P. Henson is thrilled to be Emmy-nominated as well for a comedy for once: “I came out here to be a funny girl.” Henson is also nominated for Abbott Elementary for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.

Although excited to see representation of color in the nominations, it was short lived once the writers went on strike immediately after. It was also interesting that cast members from THREE shows, “Abbott Elementary,” “Squid Game” and “Ted Lasso” comprised 13 of the 26 nonwhite acting nominees for the 74th Emmy Awards.

Check out what the True Star Podcast had to say about the nominations and who they hope will win this year.
