The androgynous Australian model, singer and V.J. Ruby Rose broke through in the United States as Stella Carlin, Piper’s devious love interest in Season 3, and quickly became a face of gender-fluid awareness. Her “Orange” stint was brief, but her star has been on the rise since, with roles in several blockbuster action films including a sharpshooter in “XXX: Return of Xander Cage,” a sultry assassin in “John Wick: Chapter 2” and — why not? — a marine scientist in the monster-shark opus “The Meg.” Next up, Rose will star as Kate Kane, better known as Batwoman, TV’s first openly lesbian superhero, in a series that will debut on CW in October.
In the era of “peak TV,” with significant strides made in recent years in terms of a broader representation of marginalized communities, is that diversity also being represented at the Emmys? Not quite.
This year, there are a total of 24 acting nominations for people of color (not including hosting duties), which represents quite a drop from last year’s record 38. Although only three of the 38 nominees actually took home trophies: Darren Criss for Lead Actor in a Limited Series for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”; Regina King for Lead Actress in a Limited series for “Seven Seconds”; and Thandie Newton for Supporting Actress for “Westworld.”
There are no actors of color in a number of key categories, including Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, as well as
This year’s Emmy’s nominations are here, and life is good… if you’re Game of Thrones, or HBO. For everyone else the 2019 Emmy nominations were a mixed bag of surprise nods, beloved actors and series finally getting their due, and oh-so-many painful snubs.
We’ve already compiled an easy-to-use list of all of this year’s major Emmy nominations so you can start planning your awards pool. We’ve also touched on this year’s big surprises and its bigger snubs. But now we’re taking things big picture. Here’s which networks and streaming services brought their A-game, and which ones missed the mark.
As diversity and inclusion attempt to stay afloat in Hollywood, this morning’s Emmy nominations showed that although the needle has been slowly moving, it hasn’t been moving enough to see change. This year, there were only 24 acting nominations for people of color. In addition, two reality show hosts of color were nominated which brings the total to 26. This is a major dip from last year’s record 38 and even less than 2017 which counted 27 diverse nominees.
Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us came in with the most nominations for people of color including a first-time nod for Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for Jharrel Jerome’s stunning turn as the real-life Korey Wise in the Netflix limited series. Other well deserved nominations from the series included Niecy Nash and Aunjanue Ellis for Lead Actress Limited Series or Movie as well as Marsha Stephanie Blake for

“Crash Into Me” arrives amid a slew of new projects for Criss, who shot to fame in 2010 as Blaine Anderson on “Glee.” In November, he’ll appear alongside Woody Harrelson and Luke Evans in the World War II drama, “Midway.” He’s also gearing up to write, executive produce and star in a new musical comedy series, “Royalties,” for the shortform video platform, Quibi.
Most Oscarologists are aware that half of the Best Picture winners so far this decade have been biopics or truth-based tales featuring real-life people. The titles? “The King’s Speech,” “Argo,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Spotlight” and “Green Book.”
But did you realize that Emmy’s limited series contest also has a long-held fondness for truth-based tales. Looking at the Gold Derby combined odds list, I realized that five out of the top six contenders are either biopics or accounts of an impactful real-life event. Showtime’s “Escape at Dannemora,” the front-runner for now before the Emmy nominations are announced on Tuesday, is based on a 2015 prison escape in Upstate New York (see photoabove). HBO’s historical drama “Chernobyl” zeroes in on the 1986 nuclear disaster in the Soviet Union.
