    I really enjoyed the article about Laverne Cox. Sadly I never knew about Angela Morley until reading that. And it truly is a shame that no one has mentioned her before as being the first trans person nominated. But of course, as was said in the article, it’s easy to understand why. Scoring noms are not as “popular” as acting noms. Anyway the only real problem I had with the article is how it mentions Sarah Paulson being one of the gay people nominated this year. But she’s not gay, she’s openly bisexual.
