Thank you guys for all of the #Emmys love and support! Proud to see so many of my heroes and peers (peer-oes?) acknowledged! Much love to my @insecurehbo family and my @ablackladysketchshow family with 3 Emmy nods! I’m throwing a Rooting For Everybody Black Parking Lot Party! Rona can’t stop us!
Sources have confirmed that though Insecure has been nominated in the past for multiple primetime Emmys, this is the very first time within the series 5 seasons history that they’ve ever been nominated for Outstanding comedy.

Since its original debut in 2016, Insecure has successfully jumpstarted much needed conversations upon surrounding topics about relationships, friendships, sex, inclusivity, racism, stereotypes, millennial lifestyles, culture and more.
Whether your a fan of the show, a Black Twitter enthusiast that breaks down the thesis of each week’s episode or the leader of the Molly haters fan club like some of us have turned to following the past season; this is an overall win for Black Culture as a whole
I know Molly stressed y’all THE heck OUT this season, but shout out to all of you for riding with @insecurehbo and for VOTING!! We IN HERE! And it’s even sweeter when the WHOLE SQUAD THRIVIN TOO! 👏🏾👏🏾 to @IssaRae on her Emmy nod, the entire show, AND @BlackLadySketch!
