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!
Robinson, born in New York City and at the age of 17 has starred in “Virgin Territory”, “Broken Vows” and “The Stowaway”. With one award under her belt for “Drama Desk Special” and several nominees she is rising star to watch. Emily looking angelic as ever, wore a golden yellow tulle dress with a strappy gold platform, and her soft waves complimented her perfectly.
This image alone shows the infectious personality of this young star! At the age of 5 years old Jeremy Maguire is known for his roles in “Modern Family” and an upcoming drama “I’m Not Here” expected to release in year 2017. He is definitely one to watch!
Rico Rodriguez was born on July 31, 1998 in College Station, Texas. He is an actor, also known for his role on “Modern Family” and at 18 years old he has already racked up 8 awards while being nominated for another 10. You GO Rico!
Marcus Scribner at only 16 years old, this Los Angeles native has worked side by side Traci Ellis Ross in their Comedy series Black-ish. Marcus has won an award for “Outstanding Performance by a Youth” in 2014 for Black-ish. Scribner is looking exceptionally dapper at the Red Carpet for the 68th Emmy Awards.
Aubrey is absolutely adorable! In her young life as an actress she has already won 3 awards for her role in “Modern Family”. She was born in Santa Monica, California and at only nine years old, I’m sure this will not be the last Emmy Awards that she attends.
Winter was spotted on the red carpet at the 2016 Primetime Emmys in a gorgeous sheer and sequin gown, accompanied with a classic and soft hairstyle. Ariel is best known for her role as Alex Dumphy in the comedy series “Modern Family”, and is only 18 years old. Exciting things to come for Ms. Winter in the next steps of her career.
Shahidi is absolutely beautiful, and it is no surprise with her African-American and Iranian-American background! Shahidi starred in the prime-time comedy “Black-ish” as her character Zoey Johnson. In She won an NAACP Image Award for ‘Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy’. At the age of sixteen this is only the beginning for Ms. Shahidi.
Gaten Matarazzo (14), Caleb McLaughlin, and Millie Bobby Brown (12)
If you are not yet familiar with the likes of these three then please allow me to introduce you Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Millie Bobby Brown. They are part of the main crew for the Netflix original drama “Stranger Things”, this thrilling drama is one that you will, I repeat…will binge watch. I personally have had to discipline myself to one episode a week because the first day I indulged for three hours! These young actors will surely be seen more often then not and I applaud the success that they have already accomplished as well as those previously spoken of earlier in this post.
Lets give it up for our rising stars, and celebrate our youth!
