The Emmy is a well-deserved award, especially after all the praise Abbott Elementary got this past year.
Quinta Brunson takes home the Emmy for Outstanding Directing in 2022 despite strong competition
The competition for this Emmy award had a number of strong candidates, including Quinta Brunson. In the category of Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, the nominees were as follows: Bill Hader and Alec Berg for Barry; Duffy Boudreau for Barry; John Hoffman for Only Murders in the Building; Jane Becker for Ted Lasso; Jen Statsky for Hacks; and separately nominated for What We Do in the Shadows were Sarah Naftalis and Stefani Robinson. Duffy Boudreau and Bill Hader were both nominated for their work on the show, Barry.
Quinta Brunson, who is brilliant, charming, and hilarious, managed to win the competition in spite of the strong competition she faced. During her victory speech, the person who created Abbott Elementary thanked ABC, Disney, Fox, and Warner Brothers for their support. My co-showrunners, Justin and Patrick, deserve my gratitude for making this happen. In addition, she expressed her gratitude to her parents, brother, cousins, and Larry Wilmore.
This year, the workplace comedy titled “Abbott Elementary” became the most tweeted about television comedy in the month of March 2022. Between the beginning of 2022 and the month of March, it gained more than 1.5 million new Twitter posts. Our website published an article earlier this year that stated, “The ‘Abbott Elementary’ sitcom is still in its first season and is already proving to be the next program that everyone will be talking about.” The fact that critics have praised Abbott Elementary and that it will be back for a second season makes me think that we can all agree that this is true.
Not to mention the fact that Quinta Brunson’s Abbott Elementary is now officially recognized as a show that has won an Emmy Award. Congratulations to Quinta Brunson and Sheryl Lee Ralph of Abbott Elementary, who won an Emmy Award in 2022.
