In support of their television mom and dad, Marsai Martin and Miles Brown attended the Emmys Diversity Brunch in Los Angeles on September 10th. Both Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross are 2016 Emmy Award Nominees. Anderson has been nominated for the Outstanding Leading Actor in a Comedy and Ross has been nominated for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy. Black-ish itself has received an award nod for Outstanding Comedy Series.
“It’s great to be nominated. It would be better to go home with a statue but it’s fun,” Anderson told E! News after the announcement was made. “It’s humbling to be associated with the talent that I’m associated with…and to have your work recognized by your peers and the academy,” he added. “It’s just a beautiful thing.”
In addition to preparing for the awards, the Black-ish cast is also busy working on the new season. The Johnson’s are back and looking better than ever in a new season three poster for the hit ABC comedy. The poster catches the dressed-to-impress family in the middle of, you guessed it, a comedic moment.
In the premiere episode, “VIP”, we will see Dre (Anthony Anderson), Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), and the entire family will head to Disney World. Jim Rashguest stars as Cody, the VIP tour guide that Dre hires to make the vacation as magical as possible, which will more than likely end in something hilarious instead. Season three will also feature Hamilton star Daveed Diggs, who will be playing Rainbow’s brother, Johan, in a recurring role.
Before Black-ish returns to the airwaves on Wednesday, September 21st on ABC, don’t forget to tune in on September 18th to see how it will fair against Transparent, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, Master of None, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and last year’s winner, Veep, for the big prize.
