Cicely Tyson

Emmy nomination

16 Jul, 2009

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences nominates Tyson for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Pearl on Relative Stranger.

I am so surprised and deeply honored by the nomination. Relative Stranger is a story that desperately cried out to be told, to make men aware how important it is to be in their children’s lives. I’m truly honored to be recognized by the Academy for this role.
