Sheryl Lee Ralph’s NAACP Image Awards dress took a 1,000 hours to make

Sheryl Lee Ralph looked like a Queen when she walked the red carpet at the NAACP Image Awards. And that was largely because of the beaded gown she wore that fit her body like a glove!

It is like it was made just for her, and it was. “How proud and happy we are to introduce you to Pistis Ghana Limited,” the award-winning actress wrote. “The husband and wife team of Kabutey and Sumaiya who spent 1000 hours constructing this gown of beaded royal Kente cloth for me @naacpimageaward.”

Kabutey and Sumaiya’s hard work shines brilliantly on the Abbott Elementary star. They found their perfect muse in the actress.


Sheryl Lee Ralph does think some white celebrities are African-American!

There was an episode of Abbott Elementary this season where Barbara thought that white celebrities were actually black.

Today, when Sherly Lee Ralph was on The Talk, Natalie Morales asked her about that. And it turns out that was based on her truth.

The Emmy-winning actress explained that when she hears names like Orlando Bloom and Darren Star, she is sure they are African-American. So imagine her shock when she met the Sex and the City creator in real life and saw that he is caucasian.

That is a true story that made its way into her fictional character. And now we have just another reason to love Ralph!

Yesterday was a big night for Abbott Elementary at the Golden Globes because the show brought home three awards. And three seems to be its lucky number because the sitcom was picked up for a third season today.

The news is not a surprise because it is ABC’s #1 series and its viewership is up 31% from its debut season.

Congrats to new Golden Globe winners Quinta Brunson and Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, Lisa Ann Walter, Chris Perfetti, William Stanford Davis, and Emmy winner Sheryl Lee Ralph on their winning everything, including our hearts!

Tune in for a new episode tonight at 9p. I wonder how much longer it will be in the timeslot? I have a feeling it will have first period, I mean the first timeslot, next season.

Jackée Harry reacts to Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Emmy win 35 years after hers

Sheryl Lee Ralph has been acting for 45 years, but she has never won a major award until last night. That is when the actress finally won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role in Abbott Elementary.

Since the actress has been working in the biz nonstop for so many years, she has several friends who are so excited for her. One of those friends was Jackée Harry, who was the last African-American to win that same award. So the 227 wrote a message for her friend.

Winning my Emmy was a career highlight, but it was also a lonely experience. For 35 years I’ve been the only black woman to win Outstanding Supporting Actresses in a Comedy Series.

But that all changes tonight… and it’s come full circle!

The network originally wanted @thesherylleeralph to play Sandra on 227, but I got the part and won an Emmy for it. Now, Sheryl joins me as the 2nd black woman in this category and deservedly so! 🎉 I’m so excited for her Emmys win!

Sheryl’s had a remarkable career AND she’s one of the nicest people in Hollywood. Barbara Howard on Abbott Elementary is another fabulous character we’ve been fortunate to watch her breathe life into. 🙏🏾

Congrats, Sheryl & welcome to the club! 🏆 #BlackGirlsRock #Emmys

The Emmys got it right when they gave Ralph the award. She deserved the award for her current role and all the parts that came before it.

And if you are going to wait 45 years to bring home that statuette, then you better give a speech as big as Ralph’s because we are not going to forget it anytime soon.
