I am so happy for her!!! ~ V
Sheryl Lee Ralph made Emmy history with her win for her role on the beloved ABC sitcom Abbott Elementary—and the world is finally giving the longtime entertainer her much-deserved flowers.
Ralph is a Tony nominee for Broadway’s Dreamgirls and a longtime fixture on stage and in film and television, with roles in productions like Wicked, in movies including Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit and series like Moesha, Ray Donovan and more.
She recognized her under-recognition in her 2022 Emmys acceptance speech.
To anyone who has ever, ever had a dream and thought your dream wasn’t, wouldn’t couldn’t come true, I am here to tell you that this is what believing looks like. This is what striving looks like. And don’t you ever, ever give up on you.
Because if you get a Quinta Brunson in your corner, if you get a husband like mine in your corner, if you get children like mine in your corner, and if you get friends like everybody who voted for me, cheered for me, loved me … thank you, thank you!
