Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, ‘Black-Ish’, Leslie Jones, And Donald Glover All Earn Emmy Nods!

Comedy News

Yesterday was a big day for comedy when the Emmys were announced. There were some surprises and there were some no-so surprises.

We were expecting to see these announcements for Best Actor and Actress In A Comedy Series;

In the Best Lead Actress In A Comedy Series category, Tracee Ellis Ross is nominated for black-ish. This is her second Emmy nomination for the ABC comedy series, in a category that has been dominated by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won the award 5 years in a row for HBO’s Veep. Could 2017 be year number 6 for her? Or will Emmy voters dethrone her and give the trophy to a fresh face in this category, like Ross?

In the Best Lead Actor In A Comedy Series category, Anthony Anderson is nominated for black-ish and Donald Glover is nominated for Atlanta. This is Anderson’s 3rd nomination for black-ish (he’s never won) and Glover’s first for Atlanta (a new entry in this category this year, its first season).

In the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category, Leslie Jones is nominated for Saturday Night Live. It’s her first Emmy nomination.

For us, we were looking for Deon Cole’s name as he was definitely a sure fire hit to be nominated- so we ask- where was Cole’s name? Did we miss it? Someone tell us!
