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!

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
