10 Black Actresses Receive 2015 Emmy Nominations



The 2015 Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced this morning, and 10 Black actresses received nominations!



Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson have made history by being the first two black women to receive Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category in the same year .
Kerry Washington was nominated for this award in 2013 and 2014. Before Washington's 2013 nomination, the last black woman to be nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series was Cicely Tyson in 1995. Unfortunately, a black woman has never won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama.

The nominations are listed below:
