Melanin Magic: Critics’ Choice Awards Celebrates ‘Moonlight,’ Viola Davis, Donald Glover & More!

By  | 

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!
