Continue reading to find out some of the nominees of the categories and the conversation about the diversity that is seen this year during the Emmy Awards.
Emmy nominees are more inclusive
Within 2020, a big topic in the media and in the world, in general, has been diversity and inclusivity. The Emmy Awards have definitely been a part of this conversation and included more nominees of color.
According to a report by L.A Times:
“ In the acting categories, 33% of the nominees are Black, compared with 14% the five years prior”
“Performers of color made up 37% of the total of nominations overall, which is 6% more than in any of the past five years”.
Some people have noticed, however, that diversity is lacking other minorities like people of Asian, Muslim, and Native American descent.
The Emmy Awards have not said anything about people’s comments on the diversity situation.
