'Emmys So White' Trends After All 12 Acting Awards Go to White Actors

#EmmysSoWhite is currently a trending topic on social media after all 12 acting prizes at the 2021 Emmy Awards went to white actors.

A record number of 49 non-white performers were nominated this year in the acting and reality competition categories, according to Variety. This makes the snubs this year even more shocking.

Several actors of color were expected to win this year, including the late Michael K. Williams for Lovecraft Country, MJ Rodriguez for Pose, and Billy Porter for Pose.

Only three awards during the night were accepted by Black people, including a win for I May Destroy You‘s Michaela Coel and a record win for RuPaul.
