Keke Palmer made history at the 2024 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Sunday, January 7.


Palmer, 30, became the first Black woman — and the first woman in 15 years — to win an Emmy for outstanding game show host. The Scream Queens alum, who won for Password, beat fellow nominees Mayim Bialik (Jeopardy!), Ken Jennings (Jeopardy!), Pat Sajak (Wheel of Fortune) and Steve Harvey (Family Feud).

"Wow. That is so exciting, thank you so much,” Palmer said during her acceptance speech at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles. “I’m really just so thankful, I’m almost speechless. I want to thank the people who allowed this to happen, thank you to Jimmy Fallon, thank you to NBC.”

Palmer also gave a shout-out to comedy legend Carol Burnett, who was in the audience at the event. Burnett, 90, also took home a Creative Arts Emmy on Sunday for outstanding prerecorded variety special for Carol Burnett: 90 Years of Laughter + Love.

Palmer became the host of the rebooted NBC game show in 2022. Fallon, 49, serves as an executive producer on the series.
