Emmy’s 2022: Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Epic Speech, The Full List of Winners

Saturday Night Live, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Zendaya, Jean Smart, Quinta Brunson, Amanda Seyfried, Julia Garner, Jerrod Carmichael, Jason Sudeikis, and Michael Keaton were among the winners at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Sheryl Lee Ralph and Brett Goldstein’s wins set records, and Mike White took home two trophies for writing and directing The White Lotus, which was also named Best Limited or Anthology Series. Succession won for Best Drama, and Ted Lasso won for Best Comedy.

The winners were announced in 25 categories, including best comedy, drama, and limited series, best lead and supporting performances, and best directing and writing in different types of shows.

Sheryl Lee’s Ralph’s Epic Speech

One of the best parts of Monday’s Emmys show was when Abbott Elementary star Sheryl Lee Ralph gave a speech thanking everyone who had helped her win.

Ralph was brought to the stage by her co-star Tyler Jesse Williams. When she won the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, she couldn’t hold back her tears. The 65-year-old actress broke into tears and sang Dianne Reeves’s “Endangered Species” in a powerful way. It had been 35 years since a Black woman had won in that category.

“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,” she declared on stage.

Ralph, who plays teacher Barbara Howard in the ABC mockumentary, then thanked her husband, kids, and “friends who voted for me” for making her dream come true.

After the show-stopping moment, many stars, like Zendaya and Quinta Brunson, got to their feet and gave Ralph a standing ovation. After the speech, Ralph also got a lot of praise on social media.

Ralph is only the second Black woman to win the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Jackée Harry previously won in 1987 for 227. Harry honored Ralph in a touching message on social media, revealing they both auditioned for the role of Sandra Clark in the NBC comedy series more than three decades ago. Harry called Ralph “one of the nicest people in Hollywood.”
