Black Hollywood Wins Big At The 2021 Golden Globe Awards!

Perhaps due to the absence of black members in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), Black Hollywood won big tonight. We know the wins were all-deserving but it seemed more than obvious that the HFPA was doing damage control after receiving deep criticism about this issue that seems to never change. Time will tell if the HFPA and Hollywood truly embrace people of color into and within the industry. 

Nonetheless, time to celebrate! Here are the winners!

Chadwick Boseman - Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama

Chadwick Boseman's widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, gave an emotional acceptance speech during the 2021 Golden Globes after Boseman won Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. "He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice that tells you you can, that tells you to keep going," Ledward said during  Sunday night's ceremony. "He would thank God. He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices." Boseman died in late August of cancer at the age of 43.
