Katt Williams, Tiffany Haddish, Ron Cephas Jones and Samira Wiley Each Win Emmys

Katt Williams is now an Emmy-winner.

The comedian took home the award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Donald Glover’s alligator-owning Uncle Willie in ‘Atlanta’ at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday.

It was Katt’s first Emmy win off his first Emmy nomination.

In taking the trophy, Katt beat out Bryan Cranston, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sterling K. Brown, Donald Glover, and Bill Hader.

Tiffany Haddish also won an Emmy — Guest Actress in a Comedy Series —  for hosting Saturday Night Live.

All four guest acting categories went to Black actors — Katt, Tiffany, Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) and Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale) each took home trophies.

The main Emmys ceremony will take place September 17 and air on NBC. We can’t wait to see more Black talent get recognized!
