And THAT’S on#BlackGirlMagic!!
Following the debut season finale on April 12, Quinta Brunson and Abbott Elementary’s mockumentary sitcom could receive a record-breaking number of Emmy nominations!
Brunson might be nominated for “Outstanding Comedy Series,” “Lead Actress in a Comedy,” and “Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series,” according to Variety.
She will become the first Black woman to garner three Primetime Emmy nominations for the same television series if she wins all three.
In 2021, Michaela Coel received four nominations for her limited series I May Destroy You.
The show is not only a pivotal smash, with a near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes score, but it also became the first comedy to quadruple its ratings since its original airing. It jumpedmore than 300 percent after 35 days of viewing across linear and digital platforms, despite a slow start with its premiere back in December.
Brunson, show’s creator, writer, and executive producer, also stars in the sitcom. Together with her co-stars Sheryl Lee Ralph, Tyler James Williams, Lisa Ann Walter, and Janelle James, Brunson plays an elementary school teacher who goes above and beyond to encourage her children.
In addition to Brunson, the rest of the cast has all had their moments of brilliance.
Williams portrays a substitute first-grade teacher named Gregory Eddie; Chris Perfetti portrays the humorous history teacher Jacob Hill. William Stanford Davis is among the supporting actors nominated by the studio as the eccentric school custodian Mr. Johnson.
They’ve submitted James plays as an ineffective school principal named Ava Coleman. Ralph plays a pious kindergarten teacher Barbara Howard, and Walter for considered a supporting actress as the funny second-grade teacher Melissa Schemmenti. Orlando Jones will be cast as Gregory’s unsupportive father as a guest actor.
Although none of the actors has ever been nominated for an Emmy, there is a concerted attempt to have a few of them make the cut.
Hulu has all of Abbott Elementary’s episodes available to watch right now. The 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards will be telecast on NBC on September 12th.
Yessss! Pull through Quinta Brunson and Abbott Elementary!
