'Pose' Stars Indya Moore & Angelica Ross React To Emmy Snubs

After the 2020 Emmy Awards nominations were announced this morning, many fans noticed a few worthy names that were left off the list – particularly in Pose stars Angelica Ross and Indya Moore.

The two actresses took to social media to address the issue with their fans, who called out the Television Academy for not including them on the list.

“I didn’t invent the academy or any of the award shows,” Indya wrote on Twitter. “If they think my work is unworthy Chile that’s just that. … Imagine if we depended on cis ppl to validate anything about us.”

Meanwhile Angelica was more emotional during an Instagram live while speaking of the awards and first explained that her tears were “not about an award or nominees” but more about a bigger issue.

“Ultimately, I need you to understand that I am so tired,” she shared. “Because those of you that know me know that I’m not just working in front of the screen or behind the lens or whatever. I’m working around the clock to get our society to value trans lives and Black trans lives. And listen, I feel what I feel because I feel like there is nothing we can do.”

Angelica added, “I feel what I feel because I feel there is nothing we can do.”
