It was Black Folks Magic all up and through the 2020 Emmy Awards on Sunday! Even though there was no red carpet or in person applause, the show still went on (virtually, of course) and it was a momentous occasion for some of our faves.

ZENDAYA MAKES HISTORY

Zendaya took home the lead drama actress win for HBO’s “Euphoria” and in the process became only the second Black woman to ever win in the category — the first was Viola Davis in 2015. And at 24-years-old, Z also became the youngest ever best actress in a drama series winner!

REGINA KING RECOGNIZED FOR GREATNESS

With her win in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie category, this makes four impressive Primetime Emmy wins for Ms. Regina King. Oh, and she gets major point for putting the spotlight on Breonna Taylor during her acceptance speech.

UZO ADUBA SHINES

Uzo took home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie. And just like Regina, Aduba also took the opportunity to say Breonna Taylor’s name.

YAHYA ABDUL-MATEEN II CONTINUES “WATCHMEN” SUCCESS

Regina wasn’t the only one from the “Watchmen” to bring home the gold, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II also won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role on the critically-acclaimed show.

TYLER PERRY INSPIRES
