Award season has kicked off and Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave has garnered multiple nominations already.

The 2013 adaptation of the 1853 autobiography by Solomon Northup led the 2014 Golden Globe nominations with seven nods and topped SAG nominations with four. Lee Daniels’ The Butler, a film whose pedigree cast was predicted to sweep all groups nods this year, was also highly recognized with three SAG nominations.

So while on the red carpet for Floyd Mayweather’s Annual Celebrity Classic Toy Drive and Basketball Game, Jamie Foxx, who had a hot run with Django Unchained last award season, shared with HipHollywood his reaction to the nominations.

“It’s fantastic, for us to be able to tell our stories, that’s the main thing,” Foxx said when asked how he feels about two strong Black films being top contenders this year.

“Sometimes slavery can be a touchy subject but you gotta tell em’. And those actors, it’s great for them to get that shine because it’ll move them on to other things. Forest Whitaker and those guys, it’s absolutely amazing.”

    It is good to know the word slave is a subject that bring people down but it is good to know it is the way people are taking it in their feeling and emotions. I think I have freedom to express myself so I am free of being a slave for someone. Thanks to America the Freedom place.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
