Emmys 2015: Changing Roles, Changing History
History was made at Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards.
In the 66-year history of the Emmy Awards, 34 women have won the prestigious award for "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series" — but not one of those women had been African-American.
Both Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis were nominated in this year's category, and Davis took home the award.
It was the first time an African-American woman has won in this category.
