The Emmy Awards is one of the most anticipated events in Hollywood and the global scene at large. Talented and worthy recipients in the entertainment and film industries are honored for their outstanding roles and achievements.
The 71st edition of the Emmy awards took place in Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 22, 2019.
One of the highlights of the ceremony, especially for the black community was the recognition of 21-year old Jharrel Jerome, who won the award of Lead Actor in a Limited Series for the movie, “When They See Us”.
