It was like a Black Hollywood Actor Reunion!

The 10th annual African-American Film Critics Association Awards ceremony, sponsored by Nissan, went down at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood and several of today's biggest stars in film came out in full force to celebrate.

The annual awards ceremony promotes the achievements of minorities in the arts and entertainment industry, which is much needed since mainstream often likes to try and play us when it comes to being recognized for being the best of the best. It’s been a breakthrough year in cinema, especially for people of color.

Director Ryan Coogler had an exciting and fulfilling night as he was a major winner. He won three awards, including awards for Best Director, Best Film and Best Song for his incredible work on Black Panther. No surprise there!
