The Primetime Emmy Awards nominees were announced this morning by The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Among the few brown faces in the nominee pool were Idris Elba and Lawrence Fishburne, who are up against one another for Lead Actor in a mini Series or movie for “Luther” and Thurgood, respectively; Elba is also nominated for his guest appearance on “The Big C”. Also nominated was Taraji P. Henson for Best Lead Actress in a mini-series or movie for her role in “Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story”, which tells the story of a Bronx mother who traveled to South Korea to bring home her son after he was kidnapped by his father.

The 2011 Primetime Emmys will air on September 18th. Also,we promise that we absolutely do care about the Emmys and did not post this only because it gives us a reason to put up a picture of Idris Elba.

What? He’s up for two awards. He should get two pictures. #fairness
