Thuso Mbedu scores Emmy nomination

We've been gushing about actress Thuso Mbedu since we first laid eyes on her and now, the world finally gets to see what we (her fans) have known all along - that she is great at her craft.Β 

The young starlet took to social media not so long ago to express her excitement and gratitude at the nomination for her portrayal as Winnie in the Mzansi Magic drama, Isthunzi, with the following post:

So it's been brought to my attention that I've been nominated for the INTERNATIONAL EMMY AWARDS which is kind of a BIG DEAL for me πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ I have to say my thank yous πŸ€ΈπŸΎβ€β™€οΈ I am here by the Grace of God! So before I say anything else : Thank you Jesus. I don't know how to put this into words. I've screamed, I've danced and jumped, I've prayed (and my vocabulary wouldn't rise to the occasion) and I've cried. I am so humbled. To my sister, Masentle Nomalungelo Mbedu, @noma.mbedu I love you more than words can explain. I am here because of God through you. To my agent, Anna, @annzo_duck thank you for taking me in and believing in me when all the other "big" agencies turned me away. God willed it and so we live purpose. RAPID BLUE! God bless and increase you. Thank you for believing in all of us by casting us. I definitely wouldn't have been able to rise to the occasion without my wonderful cast. My support system. AMANDA LANE! My words fall short but I'm gonna squeeze you so hard when I see you tomorrow! The crew! Thank you for being patient with us and making us look like the best versions of ourselves. Mzansi Magic: @mzansimagic the channel that gave me my very first acting break. Humbly, I thank you. To my family and ALL my friends: thank you humbly and I love you. Vuyelwa Mpakanyiswa, my friend and guide (and manager) this is just the beginning. Thank you for putting up with me for so long. @sdumo.mtshali Season 1 bhuti, you were my go-to person. You were never tired of helping me when I was frustrated or confused by my offers. You were always willing to talk it out and suggest different ways of playing it. We need more people like you! Thank you so much. Obviously, I could go on and on and on and on! But simply: Abahlali bezishebo (niyazazi). PMB. KZN. SATAFRIKA! Ngiyanithanda. Kubonga mina umntana kagogo. Glory be to God. Never lose heart. Keep pushing. Your dream is just a stepping stone to the greater things God has in store for you.
