Last night’s Emmy Awards had several shocking moments, one of the most being Kerry Washington’s loss of “Best Actress in a Drama Series” award. If Kerry did win this award, she would of been the FIRST African-American woman to win an Emmy award in that category. However Ms. Washington did present the award with legendary actress Carroll Diahann, 78 years old,who was the first African-American to play a leading role on television! What an honor!!
