Sheryl Lee Ralph Just Won Her First Emmy and Her Speech Was Absolutely! Glorious!!

Sheryl Lee Ralph just won her first ever Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Barbara Howard in Abbott Elementary and her speech will single-handedly go down in history as one of the best of all time.

Not only did Sheryl begin her speech by breaking out into Dianne Reeves’s song “Endangered Species” (and she CARRIED those notes!!!!), she then gave an empowering message about believing in your dreams and relying on your support system.

“To anyone who has ever—ever—had a dream, and thought your dream wasn’t, wouldn’t, couldn’t come true,” she said in part, “I am here to tell you that this is what believing looks like. This is what striving looks like. And don’t you ever, ever give up on you! Because if you get a Quinta Brunson in your corner, if you get a husband like mine in your corner, if you get children like mine in your corner, and if you’ve got friends like everybody who voted for me, cheered for me, loved me.”

The crowd stood in an uproar, giving Sheryl a much-deserved standing ovation.
