Emmy episode analysis: Billy Porter (‘Pose’) bares his soul in ‘Love’s in Need of Love Today’
Billy Porter just earned his second Emmy nomination for “Pose” after his history-making win last year. The actor, primarily known for his theater work, became the first openly gay Black performer to win Best Drama Actor for playing Pray Tell in the FX drama. This time he is submitting the Season 2 episode “Love’s in Need of Love Today,” which could very well win him his second trophy in a row.

In this installment, Pray is emceeing a ball when he suddenly collapses after a reaction to AIDS medication. He spends much of the episode in the hospital where he is visited by the spirits of people from his past who have since died, including his rival Candy (Angelica Ross), his boyfriend and his stepfather who molested him as a child. He proceeds to perform “The Man That Got Away” in a big fantasy sequence, showing off Porter’s Tony Award-winning vocal chops.
