[ # ] Jackée Harry reacts to Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Emmy win 35 years after hers
September 13th, 2022 under Jackée Harry

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.
