Colorless Night at the Emmy's

Andre Braugher
Last night was my first time watching the Emmy's award show for several years.  One thing that was shockingly apparent was the total lack of color throughout the night.

Out of all the African-American, Latino, and other minority actors and actresses on television, there were maybe 3 to 5 non-white presenters all night and the same if not fewer number of non-white actors and actresses were even just nominated.  Not to take away from any of the winners this year, but is the academy really saying that the there was nooo more talent worthy of even being recognized???

Idris Elba had two nominations this year.  Also nominated were Taraji P. Henson, Andre Braugher and Laurence Fishburne.
