Black-ish may be a beloved hit show, but there’s no bigger fan of star Tracee Ellis Ross than her own mother. The latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter features an ad congratulating Ross on her recent Emmy nomination, courtesy of her mom Diana Ross and the rest of the Ross family.
“Congratulations to my daughter Tracee Ellis Ross on her nomination for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on Black-ish. So proud of you,” the message reads, before closing with “Love, Mom and the Ross family.”
Last month, Tracee received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Rainbow Johnson on ABC’s Black-ish. This is Ross’ first Emmy nomination ever — she has previously won five NAACP Image Awards and a BET comedy award.
Ross is nominated alongside Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Laurie Metcalf (Getting On), and Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie) for the Emmy.
