This is for all women, women of colour, and colourful people, whose stories, ideas, & thoughts are not always considered worthy & valid & important. But I want you to know that I see you. We see you”

Hopefully this win will set a new precedent for award shows. Black actors and actresses deserve to be nominated in the major categories because they’re more worthy of that seat at the table. Black actors and actress tend to only sweep the Best Supporting actor and actress categories and I am hopeful that Hollywood will turn a new leaf. Inclusion and fairness in the upcoming months, please.
