Finally! Plus Size Emmy Nomination Representation

Award ceremonies are usually a hotbed of resentment when nominations are announced. This year was a mix of joy and anger when the Emmys announced.

I mean, can you blame most of us?  No Lead Actor/Actress nominations or Supporting for The Underground Railroad. But a nomination for Emily in Paris?! Still there’s more representation than the previous year.
