Photos Of The Abbott Elementary Cast At The 2022 Emmys
Quinta Brunson, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and casting director Wendy O’Brien all won Emmys tonight.
The cast of Abbott Elementary dressed up nicer than school picture day at the 2022 Emmy Awards, where they rocked the red carpet with sparkling hair, fabulous thigh slits, and bold colors that are totally glamorous. Seeing your teacher outside of school always feels a little strange, but these talented actors looked just as comfortable at the Emmys as they do in the classroom — and they definitely commanded more attention than they get at school, too!
Brunson, who took home the Emmy for Outstanding Writer of a Comedy Series, opened up about choosing an outfit that made her feel special for tonight’s awards.
"I really wanted something that made me feel va-va-voom, but also respectful," Brunson told host Laverne Cox during E!’s Live From the Red Carpet, per People. "I feel like I kind of have to do three jobs at once, actress, producer and writer, so it can be hard to find something that makes me comfortable being all three but also wearing something that makes me feel good and sexy and proud."
All in all, the cast of Abbott Elementary won three out of the seven Emmys they were nominated for: casting director Wendy O’Brien won Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series, Sheryl Lee Ralph won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, and Brunson won Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. Check out the amazing looks from the cast below!
Brunson (Janine Teagues) wore a stunning brown Dolce & Gabbana dress with a sparkly bodice and up-to-her-hip thigh slit.
