Pose star Mj Rodriguez received an Emmy nomination on Tuesday for Lead Actress in a Drama Series, making her the first trans woman in history to be recognized in a lead acting category. Rodriguez was honored for her her work as house mother Blanca in the FX drama’s third and final season. 

All told, Pose walked off with nine nominations for its final season. In addition to Rodriguez, the show snagged nods for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Billy Porter.

Despite Pose earning 11 Emmy nomination over its first two seasons (including an Outstanding Drama Series nod in Season 1), not a single member of the series’ predominantly trans female cast had ever been recognized prior to this year.

Unfortunately I don't have FX. Waiting for Netflix to buy the final series. I love Pray Tell. He's so caring.

There are leaks online. But I decided to not watch them. I prefer support the films by watching them on legal platforms.

Right choice. I think Netflix's gonna upload it soon. We only have to wait for a month or two. Maybe after the Emmys?
