Young People Stole The Show at the 68th Annual Emmy’s Awards

On September 18, 2016, located at the Microsoft Theater, in Los Angeles, California was the anticipated 68th annual Emmy Awards. As usual the Red Carpet was flooded with cameras, flashing lights, breathtaking gowns and suits. The ceremony was hosted by none other than Jimmy Kimmel who knows how to woo any crowd. However what really caught my eye this year was the youth that walked the Red Carpet and the sparkles in their eyes.

Young people are always so inspiring, so innocent and full of life and to see them all dolled up and smiling, seizing their moments, it brings me much joy! Teenagers around the world can to relate to them and see that following your dream is obtainable. To think that some of these young stars have won almost more awards than many adult actors is incredible! 

Here are a few that stole the show and looked absolutely amazing while in the spotlight!

Filmmaker Casey Neistat documented his 14-hour journey from Dubai to New York aboard one of the fanciest vessels out there.

Emirates upgraded the YouTube personality from business to first class for free. The seat would have cost him more than $21,000, he said. And while it might seem unimaginable to think of spending that amount of money on, well, anything, just wait until you see the luxuries he enjoyed.

We Need To Talk About Priyanka Chopra’s Breathtaking Emmys Dress

Red can be a tricky color on the red carpet, for pretty obvious reasons. Many stars at the Emmys ― Kate McKinnon, Connie Britton and Tatiana Maslany, to name a few ― looked lovely in the risky hue, but only one person epitomized standing out from the crowd.

Priyanka Chopra danced her way down the carpet in a bright red one-shoulder Jason Wu gown that would have been beautiful enough on its own…

Hispanic Heritage Month is upon us, and that means it’s time to celebrate and honor the many contributions Hispanics have made to the United States.

The annual celebration kicks off Sept. 15, a fact that confuses many who wonder why, unlike Black History Month or Pride Month, the 30-day period celebrating Hispanic heritage and history begins mid-month. Well, wonder no more, because we have the answer.

Back in 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson decreed that “National Hispanic Heritage Week” would begin on Sept. 15, a date that coincides with the independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile also celebrate their Independence Days soon after, on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.

Finally, ‘Atlanta’ and ‘Queen Sugar’ Deliver What TV’s Been Missing

Finally, ‘Atlanta’ and ‘Queen Sugar’ Deliver What TV’s Been Missing

Filmmakers Ava DuVernay and Donald Glover debuted their respective new TV shows on Tuesday night and they damn sure didn’t disappoint.

For weeks, we’ve been anticipating the release of Glover’s show “Atlanta” on FX and DuVernay’s “Queen Sugar” on OWN, only to have to pick between which to watch when since both debuted on the same night and time.

Despite the dilemma (which doesn’t seem half-bad considering there are twoshows created by and featuring people of color on at the same time) TV viewers rejoiced, critics sang their praises and Twitter users transformed the show’s titles into celebratory, trending hashtags. It may have seemed impossible to watch both, but even your favorite stars found a way to work it out.
