‘Pose’: Mj Rodriguez becomes first trans woman with this Emmy nomination

The 2021 Emmy nominations are here! Usually, let’s be real, award show nominations are a time when everyone groans and moans. Mainly about the systemic racism, sexism, classicism, pick your “ism” within the Hollywood system. Even so, whenever we get a historic first nomination, it doesn’t feel like all the “isms” of the world have been solved, but it feels like a baby step has been taken forward.

Yesterday, Mj Rodriguez made Emmy history by becoming the first trans woman to score a Best Lead Actress in a Drama nomination at the Emmys. To which we say, it should have happened sooner and we hope that she wins it. Seriously, Rodriguez has the ability to leave us all a mess of tears as Blanca Rodriguez on the now ended show Pose. If anyone deserves the win, then it’s her.

Naturally, Twitter is full of emotions over the nomination. So let’s celebrate by seeing the best reactions toward this historic Emmy nom! 


Gorgeous, stunning, flawless
