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!

Exclusive Details: Trey Songz Arrested For Domestic Violence + Singer’s Public Response
HipHollywood can confirm that singer, Trey Songz, was arrested on Monday morning on domestic violence charges.
The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that Tremaine Neverson, the r&b crooner’s legal name, was taken into custody around 6:30am. The arrest stemmed from an alleged violent incident on February 18.
We are told the singer was let out on bail, which was set at $50k.
After being released, Songz took to Instagram to respond to the arrest, writing on Twitter:
“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain”
He added, “I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”
The singer was also clearly unbothered by the arrest because he went as far as to share a string of stories on Instagram, which included him raving about the beautiful day and blasting music throughout his home.
As previously reported, during All Star Weekend, a woman claimed Songz unleashed fury during a Hollywood Hills party after he spotted her talking to another man.
Following the incident, the woman went to the hospital where she was treated before calling police.
The alleged victim’s lawyer, famous women’s rights attorney Lisa Bloom, even took to Instagram earlier this month to ask for any witnesses. “Went with my client today for her second police interview re her allegations that Trey Songz choked and punched her earlier this month,” Bloom tweeted. “Many were present. We need just one to have a conscience and step forward as a witness.”
