    Black Men Emmys 2014

    2014  is proving to be a strong year for Black actors as the nominees for the 66th Annual Primetime Emmys were announced earlier this morning.  Idris Elba was recognized for his work as DCI John Luther in the BBC mini-series “Luther,”  landing on the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries as well as Chiwetel Ejiofor for the jazz-age drama “Dancing On The Edge.”  Reg E. Cathey, who played barbecue  joint owner Freddy  on the Netflix hit “House of Cards” and Joe  Morton (“Scandal”) will compete for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series Emmy.

    In the comedy categories, Don Cheadle scored his third Emmy nod for the “Showtime” dramedy “House of Lies,” and Andre Braugher made the Outstanding Supporting Actor list for cop sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

    Black actresses also held it down as Kerry Washington  was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in A Drama Series category for a second year in a row for “Scandal” and Angela Bassett got some well deserved Emmy love for her chilling performance as voodoo priestess Marie Leveau in “American Horror Story: Coven.”
