A number of fresh faces are joining the Emmy race as Pose‘s Mj Rodriguez, Bridgerton‘s Regé-Jean Page and I May Destroy You‘s Michaela Coel are among a wave of 45 first-time performer nominees.
Tuesday morning, Jasmine Cephas Jones and Ron Cephas Jones unveiled the nominees list for the upcoming 73rd Emmy Awards. While previous winners and nominees, such as Ted Danson, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jean Smart, added to their roster, the voting members of the Television Academy handed kudos to a refreshingly diverse crowd of talent.
