Nigerian-American actress, Ayo Edebiri is dominating this award season!
She swept the awards for her outstanding performance in ‘The Bear,’ securing a Golden Globe, a Critics Choice Award, and now an Emmy—all within a single week.
The 28-year-old star’s portrayal of Syd in Hulu’s acclaimed series ‘The Bear’ has garnered immense praise from fans and critics alike.
Her recent Emmy win is only the third time in the 74-year history of the Emmys that a Black woman has triumphed in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, following Jackée Harry in 1987 for ‘227’ and Sheryl Lee Ralph in 2022 for ‘Abbott Elementary.’
In addition to Edebiri’s success, her ‘The Bear’ co-stars Jeremy Allen White and Ebon Moss-Bachrach also clinched Emmys for Outstanding Actor and Supporting Actor, respectively, in a Comedy Series.
Accepting the award, Edebiri expressed, “This is a show about family—found family and real family—and my parents are here tonight! I’m making them sit kind of far away from me because I’m a bad kid, I love you guys so much.”
