This is actually pretty sad that all these amazing actors never got the credit they deserve.
"You ain't played baseball in your life"...man John Witherspoon is hilarious
Best Emmy skit ever!!
I did not realize that I needed this moment in my life😢 There are too many celebrities and too many black sitcoms that have never been recognized by the Television Academy (some have never even seen a nomination) I'm glad flowers were given while they are still alive🙌🏾
The Wire is underrated asf! Biggest heist in american history
man this is really making me wish that James Avery was still alive, I bet he would have been in this sketch
The look on Michael Che's face when Jimmy Walker said "Dynamic!" instead of "Dy-no-mite!" Priceless.
This is incredible... so many greats never were awarded but there work is unforgettable
I see a lot of people listing actors that were left out (who rightfully should have been included). The reality of the situation is that if all the entertainers who were overlooked over the years due to the color of their skin were included then this bit would have taken up the whole Emmys time slot instead of three minutes.
Shot out to Robert Townsend. And The black dude on the love boat
My heart is full.
Brian Cranston!!!! I love that he has a sense of humor.
award for John Amos as James Evans.
I can't be the only one who heard Granddad Freeman when John Witherspoon started talking
This is perfect. They all really deserved to be winners and at least nominated. Icons forever. "You ain't play baseball in your life" lmao. I know there's gotta be bloopers of John saying some more funny shit.
Witherspoon was reading "engraving", on the 1968 Emmy for "I Spy", which was Bill Cosby's show with Robert Culp, implying that The academy retrieved all of Bill Cosby's awards. Incidentally, Robert Culp went to bat and insisted on Cosby as his co-star, because some network executives were racist and did not want a black male lead. Fast forward 5 decades later, and Bill Cosby's fall from being an industry heavyweight to a sexual predator is mind boggling.
Beautiful! This just warms my heart, so many greats, so many legends. Grew up on all of them, love it!
I'm trying to understand who would dislike this and why? I mean, even if you dislike the host or the channel, this is heartwarming. I just don't get it. It's like disliking puppy videos
Sometimes you see or hear something you never knew you needed...as a fan, I needed this. Thanks Che!
