Karrueche Tran is in complete shock and filled with gratitude after her historic Emmy win.
During Sunday’s Daytime Emmys, the 37-year-old actress won the award for Outstanding Performance By A Lead Actress In A Daytime Fiction Program for her role as Vivian Johnson-Garret in “The Bay,” on POPSTAR! TV.
Karrueche’s Emmy win makes her the first AAPI actress to win a Daytime or Primetime Emmy for the category.
She took to Instagram to gush and reflect on her historic win, writing:
Y’all.. I.. really don’t even know where to begin… lol when I got nominated I was soooo surprised and grateful but was like nah there’s no way I’m gonna actually win.. the nom was more than enough.. but God had a different plan for me.. I’m still in shock!
I have to thank @gregorimartin for believing in me in the very beginning stages of my career.. for seeing something in me that most didn’t.. for giving me a chance to become someone I never thought was possible.. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart ❤️
The icing on the cake was finding out I’m the first AAPI lead actress Emmy winner in both Daytime Emmys and Primetime.. excuse me WHATTT??!
I f**king made Emmys history.. that is HUGE and makes me extremely emotional.. to be a representation of a community that is so often overlooked and under appreciated brings me to tears.. WOW I am on such a high that I know will last for a long time..
I think the biggest take away from this blessing is not allowing it to get to my head or too comfortable.. this award motivates me to keep pushing myself beyond my limits.. to work even harder and become better than I was yesterday. I am so filled with love and joy you guys ????????????????????????❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ @thebaytheseries
