One of those critics is TV host Lisa Guerrero. She Tweeted “Dear Hollywood, Congrats 2 the white & African-American women who won #Emmys tonight. Hopefully you’ll soon that Latinas also exist.” Lisa talked to Lauren Sivan and Bob DeCastro about the progress that has been made and what still remains to be done.
