‘Not a Single White Man’ - Teen Vogue Celebrates ‘Diversity’ of TV Awards

5.3k views

Teen Vogue magazine is celebrating. The nominees for the 2017 Television Critics Association awards have been released, and in the acting category there’s not a single white man. 

The 2017 TCA Awards recognize outstanding television programming in the 2016-2017 season. Comprised of over 200 television critics from the United States and Canada, the TCA honors actors, producers and programs in a variety of categories, including news and information, youth, reality, drama and comedy.

Teen Vogue approves of this year’s acting category:

“As for the acting awards, there's not a single white man to make the cut. The category ‘Individual Achievement in Acting’ has nearly all women: Carrie Coon for The Leftovers and Fargo Claire Foy for The Crown Nicole Kidman for Big Little Lies, Jessica Lange for Feud: Bette And Joan, Elisabeth Moss for The Handmaid’s Tale and Susan Sarandon for Feud: Bette and Joan. The only man to make the list is Sterling K. Brown This Is Us, an actor of color.” This, writes John Paul Brammer, is “good news coming out of the world of television.”

Forget about content of character or acting ability. The only thing that matters is skin color.

The winners of the 33RD Annual TCA Awards will be announced on Saturday, August 5, 2017, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  The event will be hosted by Kristin Chenoweth.
