In a historic Emmys first, Ron Cephas Jones and Jasmine Cephas Jones are the first daughter duo to win Emmys in the same year.
During this week’s Creative Arts Emmys, Ron Cephas Jones won Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for This is Us and Jasmine Cephas Jones won Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for Quibi’s #freerayshawn.
After his win on Saturday, Jones said, “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.”
The Emmys’ main category winners will be announced Sunday night on ABC in the main ceremony.
