Hollywood Live: Black Women in Hollywood Awards



For the past 17 years, Essence has presented their Black Women in Hollywood Awards during Oscar week. Well, they showed up and showed out again this year.

Zendaya, fresh off of that big opening for “Dune,” was a fashion icon as she dazzled another red carpet and debuted her stylish new bob haircut.

Black love was in full display with B.E.T.’s “Sistas” and “Zatima” actor DeVale Ellis and his wife Khadine Ellis sharing some touching moments on the carpet. “American Fiction” star Erika Alexander joined with fellow actress Kim Coles and uber-producer Yvette Lee Bowser on the carpet. They delved into some nostalgic memories from “Living Single,” which recently hit a 30-year milestone. Do you believe it? Oh, time’s going too fast.

Honoree Danielle Brooks received a standing ovation as she sang the gospel melody, “I Won’t Complain” to accept her award. That was something else. You got to check that out. I’m so sure we’re going to see a lot of these same folks, especially Danielle Brooks, who is nominated for “The Color Purple” on the Oscar red carpet Sunday.

Now, whatever you do, you’ve got to log in to Instagram on Sunday. We’re on at 1 p.m. PT, 4 p.m. ET. We will be live on the red carpet at the 96th Academy Awards. And whatever you do, you really want to check it out. We’re going to be out there with everybody, and there’s a lot of folks coming through.

Before the big show, it is Daylight Savings, so set the clock forward and tune in to the Oscars. It’s on ABC and Jimmy Kimmel is hosting again. That’s at 7 p.m. ET and of course 4 p.m. here on the West Coast. Don’t want to miss any of this all day on Sunday. We’ll be there with you.
