Sheryl Lee Ralph Won Her First Emmy in Brandon Blackwood’s

If there’s anything we’ve gathered from Sheryl Lee Ralph over the years, it’s that she’s going to make an impact, whether it’s on TV or the red carpet — and her 2022 Emmy’s appearance proved that.

Her first time (!) being nominated for an Emmy was also her first time winning an Emmy, for best supporting actress in a comedy series for ABC’s “Abbott Elementary — a win viewers won’t soon forget thanks to her momentous and musical speech. But she also made history with her dress: a custom ensemble and the first-ever gown created by New York-based handbag designer Brandon Blackwood.
