This Year’s Emmy’s Were a Celebration of Women in Their 60s and 70s Who’ve Spent Decades Proving Their Talent
Women in their 60s and 70s took home some of the top honors at this year’s Emmy’s—and we say, it’s about time.
Sheryl Lee Ralph had the room rapt as she accepted her award (her first Emmy) for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. See below for the 65-year-old Abbott Elementary star’s moving words that will inspire you to never give up on yourself.
Another major dose of inspiration: Jennifer Coolidge. The 61-year-old performer won her first Emmy for her ‘Outstanding Supporting’ role in The White Lotus. Coolidge smiled and danced as she gave her acceptance speech, leaving us clapping. You can read and watch more about Coolidge’s moment in The Cut.
And for her role in the show Hacks, Jean Smart, 71, won for the second year in a row. Read more in Variety about her Best Actress win and her legendary career that totals five Emmy wins and 12 nominations.
