The stars aligned at this year's EMMY Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. to honor the hottest television stars of the year. The red carpet was filled with melanin and we've rounded up all their looks. More inside...


Each year, the Television Academy brings all the hottest television stars under one roof for a celebration of all the TV shows that kept us entertained throughout the year. The 2019 EMMY Awards went down at the Microsoft Theater where tons of celebs stepped out to soak in the festivities, whether they were up for an award, there to show support for a co-star, or there to support their own show.

Our girl Zendaya killed it in her new role on HBO’s “Euphoria,” however, the series didn’t scoop up any nominations this year because it premiered after the EMMYs eligibility had already passed. We def expect to see the show scoop up nominations next year because it was one of the most watched and talked about shows over the summer.

The 23-year-old actress/activist served up old Hollywood glam in a sexy emerald Vera Wang gown that showed just enough skin, yet elegant at the same time. She went back to her red tresses and the soft waves were a perfect touch to complete her look.

The Exonerated 5 (formerly known at the Central Park 5), including Antron McCay, Raymond Santana, Kevin Richardson, Korey Wise and Yusef Salaam - hit the carpet alongside "When They See Us" director Ava DuVernay.

"When They See Us" star Jharrel Jerome nabbed his first EMMY for his portrayl of Korey Wise.
