ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood has been bringing Hollywood’s finest, most melanated queens, kings and every one in between together for over a decade. And each and every year, the event seems to outdo itself, which is no wonder why the 2020 ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon owes us nothing.

This year’s host, talk show host and recording artist, Eve ushered us through a star-studded, buzzy celebration, while paying tribute to The Bryant, Altobelli, Chester and Mauser families, while keeping the energy high in the room.

But the stand out moments that deserved a reaction were mostly embedded in the epic speeches by the honorees as well as their celeb besties who presented them.

Honoree, Melina Matsoukas took us all on a journey, sharing all the reasons her incredible mother deserves the praise she showered her with. Fellow honoree, Lashana Lynch also showered her mother with love during her speech, detailing the sacrifices she made for her and how she never wavered in support.

Melina also revealed that she was a production assistant on the set of Trina’s “A- – Too Fat” video. Between the revealing, heartfelt and hilarious speeches, the whole room feeling like Black Women Christmas, ESSENCE celebrating all Black women, Alfre Woodard’s poetic way of speaking, ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood might be one of the most soul-filling event our OverExplainer has ever been to.
