I am blessed to have worked with such a great team and am humbled to be representing South Africa and the talent that it possesses at the awards ceremony,” she said in a statement released by her management.
“Yesterday I posted a pic of myself on Instagram. I wanted to say “#WCW the last time I woman crushed myself I got an iEmmy nomination” but I got scared. I didn’t want to feel like I’m boasting or whatever. So I didn’t caption it that way. Meanwhile, God knew. My second nomination (sic),” – Thuso captioned her photo on Twitter.
Mbedu is the third South African to ever be nominated and the only African nominated across the board at the 46th International Emmy Awards.
