Emmy Awards, or simply the Emmys, are American awards that recognize excellence in the American television industry. These awards are presented at different annual events throughout year, with some events being more popular than others. This year’s edition however is special for Ugandans as we have two representatives on the list.
Joseph Opio and David Kibuuka have both been nominated in the category for “Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series” for their role with the Daily Show.
The two are listed alongside Dan Amira, head writer; Lauren Sarver Means, senior writer; Daniel Radosh, senior writer; Matt Koff and Randall Otis as well as Trevor Noah. They are listed against other writers of Full Frontal, Last Week Tonight, Late Night and The Late Show.
One cannot tell their chances of winning but just getting a nod as a nomination in these prestigious awards is a huge win for the Ugandans in the 72nd Emmy Awards slated to happen at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, California on the 21st of September 2020.
