The entertainment world rejoiced in July when the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences released the most diverse nomination pool in Emmy history. This year’s Emmys continued to make history with Viola Davis becoming the first black female actress to win in a Drama Series and Uzo Aduba, one of just two people to win for the same role in two genres. The history-making awards brought us collective and carefree #BlackGirlMagic from the moment these fearless women hit the red carpet. Our favorite looks from the night are below.
