Have any African-American women ever won any daytime Emmys? — B.D.
The answer is yes! Yes! Yes! Angie Baxter Hubbard brought viewers to tears as she mourned the death of husband, Jesse, who was gunned down in the line of duty. For her unforgettable performance, Debbi Morgan (ex-Angie, AMC and The City; ex-Chantal, Generations; ex-Ellen, PC) became the first African-American actress to take home the top prize for Best Supporting Lead Actress in a Drama Series in 1989. She shared the title with Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis, GH) who won for her portrayal of Julia on Santa Barbara. Other black actresses have also been up for the prestigious award. The Young and the Restless boasts two nominees. Victoria Rowell has been nominated three times in the Best Supporting Actress category. In 1996, she ran against her fellow co-star Tonya Lee Williams (Olivia). (DD)
