Central Park Five Receives Standing Ovation at 2019 Emmy Awards

Central Park Five Receives Standing Ovation at 2019 Emmy Awards The stand-out moment happened when Jharrel Jerome won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series.

The 21-year-old actor won the award for his portrayal of Korey Wise in the Netflix drama, 'When They See Us.'

Written and directed by Oscar winner Ava DuVernay, the four-part series tells the story of the Central Park Five.

Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Raymond Santana, Yusef Salaam and Korey Wise were five black and latino teens wrongfully-convicted of a violent crime in New York City during the 1980s.

Jerome dedicated his award to the men, saying "this is for the men that we know as the Exonerated Five." The five received a standing ovation from the audience at Jerome's dedication.

DuVernay hinted that they would attend the ceremony in August, saying, "They are all my date for the Emmys ā€¦ Iā€™m going to have them all out."
