Black and slaying: everyone Black that won at the 2021 Emmys

Black folk stay winning and we love to see it. The Creative Arts Emmys and Formal 73rd annual awards ceremony took place last night on the 19th of September.

Bringing out the stars in full glare, the award ceremony was as glamorous as expected. This year saw some ground-breaking performances. Courtney B. Vance in HBO’s sci-fi/horror Lovecraft Country and Ghanaian-British actress Michaela Cole were among some of the winners.

Michaela Coel‘s limited series I May Destroy You was an absolute favourite. I May Destroy You got plenty of nominations, bringing in 18 for Outstanding Limited Series, Actress in a Limited Series, and more.

While performance awards was the theme we cannot deny that fashion took centre stage.
