Something very special happened February 25th in Beverly Hills. A star-studded room of women (and men) gathered at the ninth annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Awards luncheon to celebrate their own. Honorees for this year's Black Women in Hollywood include Black-ish actress Tracee Ellis-Ross, who received the Fierce & Fearless award, director and choreographer Debbie Allen was bestowed with the Legend award, and entertainment attorney Nina Shaw took home the Lincoln Power Award.
For the second year in a row, TV viewers will get a look inside the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood event, courtesy of Oprah Winfrey. OWN will air a primetime special tonight at 10 p.m. with a look inside the ninth annual pre-Oscar event celebration, featuring highlights from the big night and will include exclusive celebrity interviews. Celebrants included Oprah Winfrey, Shonda Rimes, Garcelle Beauvais, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Tia Mowry & Zendaya. We love it. Watch here
