#EmmysSoWhite Trends After White Actors Get All 12 Acting Awards

Sharing is caring!

#EmmysSoWhite is currently a trending topic on social media, as all 12 acting awards were given to white actors at the 2021 Emmy Awards.

According to Variety, a record 49 non-white actors were nominated this year in the acting and reality competition categories. Because of this, this year’s setbacks are even more shocking.

Several actors of color were expected to win this year, including the late Michael K Williams for Lovecraft Country, MJ Rodriguez for Pose and Billy Porter for Pose.

Only three awards were accepted by black people during the night, including I May Destroy You’s Michaela Coyle win and RuPaul’s record win.
