FAMU alumna receives Emmy nomination

Florida A&M University (FAMU) alumna, actress and screenwriter Kelsey Scott has been nominated for an Emmy for “Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series.” Scott has received critical acclaim for her role as Sierra on “Fear The Walking Dead: Passage.”

The School of Journalism & Graphic Communication grad and Essential Theatre alum is also known for her role as Anne Northup in the Academy Award-winning film “12 Years a Slave.”

Boasting a long career in both television and theater, Scott has also appeared on hit shows such as “Army Wives,” “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Scott began her screenwriting career when former Rainforest Films partners and FAMU alumni Rob Hardy and Will Packer tapped her to pen the Sony Pictures thriller “Motives.”
