  1. When “A Raisin In The Sun” came out on the TV, I made sure to watch it. Excellent! Diddy, Sanaa Lathan, Phylicia Rashad, all of them, did an outstanding job of acting. I hope they all win an Emmy.

  2. I hope they do win an award i mean “raisin in the sun” was a great movie

  3. As long as they didn’t nominate Diddy; then I’m cool. The brother is an entreprenuer with sick business acumen; but thespian he is not.

  4. Congrats to them!! I thought the movie was good, I was glued to the TV when it came on. I hope they win also.

  5. Congrats on the noms and good luck to winning! 🙂 p.s. I “heart” Audra MacDonald. 😉 She’s a great actress.
