The four-part miniseries chronicled the real-life stories of the "Exonerated Five" -- a group of teens who were wrongfully accused of raping a woman in Central Park. It previously earned 15 Emmy nominations and scored two wins at the awards show in September, including one for lead actor Jharrel Jerome.
"These things are a cherry on top," DuVernay tweeted in response to a fan hoping she still had an "amazing morning" on Monday. "The sundae is yummy with or without it. And this one has been particularly delicious."
Thank you. I am!
These things are a cherry on top. The sundae is yummy with or without it. And this one has been particularly delicious.
A lack of recognition for When They See Us isn't the only thing that had fans speaking out following the Globes nominations on Monday. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association also didn't hand out nods to Euphoria's Zendaya or Us' Lupita Nyong'o -- or any female directors -- leading fans to express their disappointment online.
y’all are trying to tell me that florence AND euphoria AND lupita AND jharrel jerome AND even more than that got snubbed for golden globe noms?? pic.twitter.com/oaJXqbPQ8Z
When they see us being snubbed by the Golden Globes is consistent with the way people can’t talk about our stories. It was “too hard to watch”,yet it is our reality. Proud of @ava and the Exonerated 5. Never stop telling our stories.Onward and upward ! Love to my WTSU fam 🖤
