We saw diversity again at this year’s Emmys Awards.

Keeping their promise to strive for diversity, Hollywood gave away Emmys last night to many who show diversity in race and ideology.

#BlackExcellence was strong as Donald Glover won two Emmys. One for Best Actor in a Comedy Series and Best Directing in a Comedy Series for his Atlanta comedy on FX. With the Best Director win, he becomes the first African American man to win in that category.

Glover made another big announcement during his acceptance speech that him and his girlfriend are expecting baby number 2!

Another great moment of #BlackExcellence was Master of None’s Lena Waithe, who along with co-star Aziz Ansari, won an Emmy for Best Writing in a Comedy Series. Waithe became the first African American woman to win Best Writing In A Comedy, her acceptance speech incorporated some love for the LGBTQ community.

This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown won his second Emmy in two years, making him the first Black man to win Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series since 1998. Although his acceptance speech was cut short (it was a little long honestly) he finished it backstage with the press.

Riz Ahmed won his first Emmy for HBO’s Night Of and became the first Asian male actor to win an Emmy in an acting category.

Congrats to all the winners!
