Ron Cephas-Jones and Jasmine Cephas-Jones really said, “Like father, like daughter,” when it came to their Emmy Awards wins.
Each took home an Emmy this year in their respective categories, making history as the first father-daughter duo to do so.
Jasmine Cephas-Jones took home an award for best short-form comedy or drama for Quibi’s “#FreeRayshawn” at the Creative Arts Emmys.
Ron Cephas-Jones won a statue for best guest actor in a drama series for his role in “This Is Us.”
“Legacy ... what is a legacy?” Making History and Herstory. WOW,” Jasmine said of the news on Twitter Sunday.
Jasmine’s boyfriend and former “Hamilton” co-star, Anthony Ramos, also tweeted the news: “Y’all made history! Cephas means Rock in Aramaic. That couldn’t be more true seeing as y’all are setting the foundation for a legacy.”
In the Emmys press room, Ron Cephas-Jones gushed to Entertainment Weekly about his daughter earning a nomination after he found out he won his own statue.
“As a parent, that’s the most fulfilling [thing] I could ever feel. I mean, winning another Emmy is icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy, it’s beyond words,” he said.
Congrats to the legendary Cephas-Jones clan!
