It was one of the most competitive categories of the 2016 Emmy Awards: Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. But as predicted, Courtney B. Vance wound up taking home the big award for his role as Johnnie Cochran in The People v. O.J. Simpson.

This is the first Emmy win and nomination for Angela Bassett’s husband, who yelled, “Glory to God!” when first touching the golden statuette.

“To my fellow nominees, thank you,” Vance said. “To the woman that rocked my chain, Angela Evelyn Bassett, this one is for you, girl.” The actor concluded his acceptance speech by telling the crowd, “Obama out, Hillary in.”

Prior to the awards show, HipHollywood caught up with Variety’s Executive Editor of TV, Debra Birnbaum, who forecasted Vance’s win. “He was so fantastic in The People v. O.J. Simpson. He really owned the role; he just made it his own.”

Congratulations to the actor.

During an appearances on CBS’s The Talk, the singer admitted that she considered taking her own life during the height of the group’s success. “I’m in one of the top-selling female groups of all time, suffering with depression,” Williams said. 

According to the pop star, she struggled with depression from age 13, but it wasn’t until her 30’s that she came to terms with it. “I think at the age of 25, had I had a name to what I was feeling at the time, I would have disclosed that ‘I’ve been suffering from depression.'”

She continued, “When I disclosed it to our manager [Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles] at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘You all just signed a multimillion-dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?'”

Williams then confessed that the depression, which she first chalked up to being tired, got “to the point where I was suicidal… and wanted out.”

Following the singer’s public confession, she took to Twitter to thank fans and the talk show for their support. “Thank you @TheTalkCBS for being a safe place to talk about #depression #mentalhealthawareness!!” she wrote. “Don’t be afraid to reach out for help!”
