Emmy Award Nominations Announced

Two shows with black lead characters received Emmy nominations: 1) "Everybody Hates Chris," and 2) "The Unit." They received one nomination each. Of course, Grey's Anatomy, created and produced by a black woman, Shonda Rhimes, right, received 11 nominations. So maybe racial characterizations do not matter in Hollywood or America anymore. Right! There are blacks sprinkled throughout the shows that are nominated (Complete List).

Alfre Woodard received a supporting actress nomination for her role as Betty Applewhite on Desperate Housewives. The show "Black - White" about makeup being used to make a black family white and a white family black received a makeup nomination. "American Idol" producers were nominated in the Outstanding Reality-Competition Program category and one of its three judges is black (Randy Jackson). We know. We know. This race stuff doesn't matter. Right!
