Boasting its most diverse roster of nominees ever (including nearly 50 BIPOC in the acting categories alone), the award show’s 73rd annual edition aired Sunday (September 19) with many viewers tuning in with hopes of seeing history made for people of color, people of trans experience, and more. Despite 44 percent of overall nominees being people of color, what viewers got was a peek at only White actors taking home trophies in all of the 12 major acting categories (lead or supporting).
Prompting the explosive Twitter hashtag #EMMYsSoWhite in response, the conversation continues days after the award show upset – as evidenced by Dogg’s latest Instagram rant. Sharing a photo of the list of this year’s EMMY nominees of color, Snoop (born Calvin Broadus Jr.) captioned the pic with:
“Then U wonder why I say f*ck all these bullsh*t ass award shows they not for us Emmy these nuts in ya mouth.”
As of time reported, no reps from the Television Academy have addressed the commentary from Broadus or other critics.
