Looks like Hollywood’s “white out” is on hiatus–at least in TV Land. This morning the nominations for the 63rd Annual Emmys were announced and Black Hollywood is finally feeling the love. Taraji P. Henson got a nod in the “Best Actress in a Mini-Series Or Movie” category for Lifetime’s ” Taken From Me: The Tiffany Ruben Story.” Idris Elba and Laurence Fishburne will face off in the “Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie” arena–Elba for BBC crime procedural “LUTHER”, Fishburne for HBO’s “Thurgood” (based on the life of the first black supreme court justice Thurgood Marshall). Andre Braugher (“Men of A Certain Age”), Sofia Vergara (“Modern Family”), and Archie Punjabi (“The Good Wife”) also round out the Emmy’s diverse spectrum of nominees.
