I'm sorry that's not right it's a show about actual men posing as women literally and figuratively. If they win what they'll be is the first MAN to win in a women's catagory taking away all the women nominated and some who have never won before and Emma, Olivia and Jurnee have never been nominated so explain how this is fair?

@9:54 A trannny won Miss Nevada. Kataluna Enriquez, who was crowned Miss Nevada USA. He will become the first openly transgender woman to compete in the Miss USA pageant.

It's about the acting. Who was the best. Before commenting I hope you have seen all the shows that the nominee's were playing before judging.
I'm waiting for more hate on this web-site.

Wonderful. She's a really good actress. I avoided this program thinking it would be Jerry Springer on steroids, but it's not. It's about "posing" but more than anything it's about people living on the edges of society and taking care of each other when their own families turn away.

Season 2 was the best for me, but I recommend all seasons.

I have never seen this show, so no comment on if the acting really deserved an a award. And I have no idea who this person is, never heard of them. I rarely watch tv anyway.

Sorry, but she acts like she's reading a script. She's not that great of an actress and she looks a lot older than what she really is.

If it is just about the acting, why isn't he nominated in the men's category? EXACTLY. There should be a best transgender actress/actor category. A person can be transgender and be the BEST karate fighter that has ever been on screen, BUT would they put them in the men's category?

NOT FAIR...THEY NEED ANOTHER AMBIGUOUS CATAGORY!

@10:24 Exactly my point the women's suffrage didn't happen for no reason. They should have there own catagory for everything as far as I see it. Women have been fighting for equality for years and years hell there was a time Women couldn't even act on stage Romeo and Juliet in original theater so for actual women to have own catagory a good thing because no matter how you look at it they can be nominated in any category while we just have the one.

There are not enough Trans actors to have a category. Maybe they will have one if the door opens up.

Congrats MJ!!!

Shits weird and disrespectful, for one to be able to dress in makeup and women’s clothes does not make you a woman. Women have endured many struggles, and I believe it’s not FAIR TO WOMEN to now have to compete with men, they have their own category.

And please miss me with all the “hate” shit. I said what I said

There are more than enough trans actors in hollyweird, Joan Crawford and the list continues were all trans, Jennifer Anniston is a man, hollyweird if filled with trannies masquerading as a different sex. They are just not ready to kick the tranny door down, because the pearl clutching public would have a stroke. Many of the "women" in hollyweird are actually men, same goes for the music industry, I'm even looking at the BTS boy bands from NK, those little girly looking men are probably women, masquerading as men. Nothing is as it seems in the "entertainment industry" you all are being catfished by shapeshifters.

I don't know why she's getting an Emmy. She is NOT a good actress at all! Bill Porter was the only one who played his role well. The rest of them are so forced and struggled.
