Queen Sugar wins for Outstanding Drama Series (2017)
The show has yet to receive any Primetime Emmy Award nominations
It’s absolutely criminal how much this OWN show doesn’t receive the recognition it deserves. With strong performances, subtle direction and deep dives into topics impacting Black families of the South, the show has achieved amazing work in television. Add in Ava DuVernay‘s push to hire all women directors, and you have the recipe for a groundbreaking show.
The Emmys have yet to acknowledge this though, considering three seasons of the show have received zero nominations.
