Major Wins For Us at the SAG Awards

The 23rd annual SAG Awards aired Sunday and there were some major victories or black actors and films this year. Hidden Figures won best ensemble.

“This film is about unity,” lead actress Taraji P. Henson said while accepting the award. “The shoulders of the women that we stand on are three American heroes. … Without them, we would not know how to reach the stars. These women did not complain about the problems, their circumstances, the issues. We know what was going on in that era. They didn’t complain. They focused on solutions. Therefore, these brave women helped put men into space. … This story is of unity. This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. We win. Love wins every time.”
