Sheryl Lee Ralph has been in the industry for decades but she is just now receiving undivided attention from her peers and this is because of her recent Emmy win.

Her win is notable for being the first win by a black actress in 35 years.

 

Sheryl Lee Ralph’s win has catapulted her prospects to a whole new level. Despite putting in amazing work for over 40 years, she is just now getting great opportunities ushered her way.

 

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, she said

 

“It’s so interesting because, first of all, yesterday’s price is not today’s price. Aha! That changes immediately. There are doors that have probably been closed that on September 13th [the day after the Emmys] flew open, and people want you to know that the door was open”

 

Sheryl talked about how she can confidently demand things when she said

 

“People have been very, very direct in saying things like, “This is the best time in your whole career; ask for what you want and don’t be shy about it.” To hear people say to you, “It might have been good for you before, but it’s about to get a whole lot better,” it’s been absolutely amazing.”

 

Ralph also expressed the warmth she received from the cast and crew to the Hollywood Reporter. She said

 

“It was great to be cheered on by your own set. And I brought the Emmy with me. Everybody was so excited. They were so happy. There were folks who’d been around, and they understood the significance of the win. It was 35 years before a Black woman won this award.”
