Let’s face it, our melanin has magic and that was ever so evident at the 22nd annual Critics’ Choice Awards.

In years past, the brilliant work done by actors of color may have been overlooked, but this year it was celebration of diversity. With 10 nominations, Moonlight led the pack. The film’s star, Mahershala Ali, won Best Supporting Actor, while the entire cast won Best Ensemble.

Another standout was Donald Glover, who won Best Actor in a Comedy for his hit show Atlanta. And the Black Girl Magic queen of the evening, Viola Davis, received the #SeeHer award and won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Fences.

Plainly put, the critics got it right this year!

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
