We Owe These Ten Black Actors One of Michael Che's 'Reparations Emmys'
The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards had an awkward dissonance between its lip service to diversity and the noticeable lack of diversity in the night’s winners. That fact was underscored by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s overwhelming sweep, taking home eight Emmys and seemingly cementing itself as a new Hollywood favorite. The Amazon comedy focuses on the life of an upper class white woman in 1950s New York, but recast with a political awakening sub-plot fit for “progressive” times. The night’s big snubs included Atlanta’s 13 losses, with Donald Glover losing all three of his nominations, Issa Rae losing best lead actress in a comedy series to Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan, and Sandra Oh losing best lead actress in a drama series though her win would have broken important ground for Emmy diversity.
