Rising Star

Issa Rae

Writer, producer and actress Issa Rae created her own path by starting out in the online/web space, but has since transitioned to television and is now one of Hollywood’s much-watch talents. Her new show, HBO’s INSECURE, took the world by storm this past year with its ridiculously hilarious punch lines, private rap battles and a killer musical selection. It also earned her her first Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a TV Comedy or Musical.
