The 2018 Creative Arts Emmys made history Saturday night when, for the first time, all four guest-acting statues went to black actors.
Ron Cephas Jones was recognized in the guest actor in a drama series category for his role as William Hill on NBC’s “This Is Us,” and Samira Wiley won the guest actress in a drama series award for her role as Moira on Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Comedians Tiffany Haddish and Katt Williams took home prizes in the guest actress and guest actor in a comedy series categories. She won for her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig and he for his role as Willy in FX’s “Atlanta.”
The stars were all first-time Emmy winners, with Haddish making history two-fold: Her “SNL” appearance in November marked the first time a black female stand-up comic hosted the show since its inception in 1975.
