2019 Award Season: Black Excellence

Tis the Season for designer dresses, champagne toasts and “I would like to thank” speeches. If you’ve guessed correctly, date night isn’t the only special event in the air. The beginning of the year sparks award season for the entertainment world. As film and television recently held the Golden Globe Awards, this sparks the beginning as the Screen Actors Guild Awards and Academy Awards are soon to follow. The music world also has their biggest award show, The Grammy Awards, which brings the competition and the heat. No matter the awards, we can’t wait to see our favorites shine and take home the honors.

Last month’s Golden Globes brought the film world’s Black Excellence into one room, and we couldn’t help but highlight a few of our favorites. Wakanda is still forever our favorite as the Black Panther cast presented at the show. Ryan Coogler, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan and Danai Gurira looked amazing and gave us all the feels we needed to remind us of the movie. Actress Regina King was one of the biggest winners for the night taking home the award for Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for If Beale Street Could Talk. King not only devoted her speech to women and providing more jobs for them in the future, but also radiates down the red carpet showing the crowd how the night was truly hers.

Our favorite look for sure went to singer and actress Janelle Monae in Chanel Pre-Fall. With accents of Egyptian culture mixed with futuristic details, only this start could pull off such an avant-garde piece.

Take a look at some of our favorite looks and we’ll see you back for a quick Last Look of the next award shows!
