Hollywood was filled with powerful African Americans in the entertainment industry on Wednesday night as they all gathered to celebrate Ebony magazine’s annual Power 100 Gala.
The publication hosted it’s annual event that salutes the achievements of the most influential and powerful African Americans in the country. HipHollywood was on the red carpet where we caught up with the evenings nominees, including Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Bishop T.D. Jakes.
“If there was a moment that I could turn to my grandfather, this would be the one event in Hollywood I would ever bring him to. It would mean so much to him,” Frazier told us.
“To use whatever influence you have to project a message that helps to change the lives of people is what I’ve committed my life to. And to be acknowledged on this forum is very gratifying,” Bishop explained.
One of the night’s biggest honors, Quincy Jones, who took home the achievement award. Several musicians, including Earth, Wind & Fire’s Verdine White and Kem showed up just to pay tribute to the icon. “My music and my life wouldn’t be what it is without the impact he has had in the industry,” Kem said.
Halle Berry & Her Wig Return For L.A. Riots Drama ‘Kings’
We may know why Halle Berry had those trendils of terrors at last years Oscars ceremony … she was in character for her new flick Kings.
The trailer just dropped and Berry’s curly locks are pretty identical to the ones she infamously rocked at the 2017 Academy awards. Folks went in on the gorgeous beauty about her hair choice for the evening, but we think once people see the trailer they’ll give her a pass.
Kings tells the story of Millie (Berry), a single mother with eight children, and some of them aren’t even her own. But she takes it upon herself to give them the best home that she can, even if it brings a little craziness into her neighborhood and drives her next door neighbor Obie (Daniel Craig) a little crazy. But there’s turmoil on the horizon after the Rodney King verdict is announced and the riots begin, seemingly putting Millie and her family in danger on the streets.
Similar to last years Detroit the flick, directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven tackles racial tensions between citizens and law enforcement. Kings received mixed reviews when it premiered at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, but audiences will get to make up their own minds about the hot-button race-relations drama when it lands in theaters on April 27.
