Trevor Noah Breaks Barriers, Making Emmy History as First African Talk Series Winner

Trevor Noah, a South African comedian, has won an Emmy for his talk show The Daily Show in the category of outstanding talk series.

Noah becomes the first African and first black person to win an Emmy for outstanding talk series since the category’s inception in 2015.

“It’s amazing that I get to be a part of this journey. It feels like being part of a winning football team,” Noah stated after clinching the victory on Monday night.

The comedian had previously been nominated for five Emmys, but his sixth nomination, which came in his final season hosting The Daily Show, was enough to secure him the victory.

Noah shocked many of his fans when he announced his departure from The Daily Show after seven years as host in September 2022.

The South African comedian has announced that he will leave The Daily Show in 2022.

When asked who would take his place, Noah joked, “When they announced that we won, I said, ‘Ahh, who is going to replace me?'” “I’m still considering it.”

The hunt for his replacement is still on.

Noah also has an Emmy for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series, which he won in 2017.

The Emmys are the most prestigious awards in the American television industry.
