Roland Martin and HipHollywood’s Vanessa Barnett rundown which African American actors  received Emmy Award nominations and who was snubbed by the Emmy voting committee.

Lee Daniels took to social media to voice his displeasure after learning that Empire was left out of the Emmy nominations. In an Instagram video post with actor Jussie Smollett, Daniels is seen saying “F*** these motherf***ers.”

“Some of these people ain’t got nothing else better to do but to hate on me for having fun. I was having fun. I love the Emmys and I’m excited about my cast and crew that got nominated and for the other people that got nominated for Emmys.”

“So haters shut up and go to bed.”
