Tonight’s Emmy Awards brought out stars from both behind and in front of the camera, including a groundbreaking number of Black nominees in acting categories.

This year sees at least one actor of color nominated in every single acting category, with HBO’s now-canceled Lovecraft Country leading the way with a Black actor nominated in each drama acting subcategory despite its cancelation after only one season on-air.
