John David Washington, Amandla Stenberg, Ryan Coogler & More Scoop Up Hollywood Film Awards + Miguel Cops AMLA Award Alongside Fiancée Nazanin Mandi
Black Hollywood swept up awards at this year’s Hollywood Film Awards. Go inside to celebrate with your faves, plus see Miguel‘s emotional acceptance speech after copping an AMLA award inside…
Young, Black Hollywood was recognized at the the 22nd Annual Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills. And two YBF fresh faces copped breakout awards for their recently released projects.
They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. John David Washington, son of Denzel Washington, is following in his dad’s famous footsteps, killing it at the box office and nabbing awards for his stellar performance. He was honored with the Hollywood Breakout Performance Actor Award for his role in Spike Lee‘s BlacKKKlansman, which he bodied.
"Empire" starlet Taraji P. Henson was on hand to present the hottie his award.
He looked damn good in a Dior Men suit.
John’s sister, Katia Washington, came out to celebrate his accomplishment.
Amandla Stenberg was recognized with the Hollywood Breakout Performance Actress Award for her incredible performance in The Hate U Give. There have been mixed reviews about the movie, but we thought it was bomb and relevant for the times we’re living in right now.
The actress/activist rocked a Ralph Russo Couture dress paired with Brian Atwood booties, an Edie Parker clutch, and Norman Silverman diamonds.
Her fellow queer queen Janelle Monae presented her with the award.
Amandla’s co-star Algee Smith was also in attendance to support.
Mahershal Ali accepted the Hollywood Ensemble Award alongside Viggo Mortensen for their performance in Green Book, presented by Octavia Spencer.
The film, which centers around a world-class African-American pianist who’s about to embark on a concert tour in the Deep South in 1962, hasn’t even hit theaters yet and it’s already rounding up awards.
Green Book hits theaters November 21st.
Black Panther is still nabbing awards. And rightfully so.
Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan presented director Ryan Coogler and producer Nate Moore with the Hollywood Film Award.
Thank God there isn’t a limit on how many times you can watch a movie on Netflix because we have been watching Black Panther like preschoolers.
So damn fine.
This Is Us star/EMMY winner Sterling K. Brown presented the Hollywood Breakout Ensemble award to the cast of Crazy Rich Asians.
The Hate U Give star Russell Hornsby was also in the mix.
Speaking of awards…
Singer Miguel made his way to the the American Latino Media Arts (ALMA) Awards in LA and he brought his fiancée Nazanin Mandi as his date. As for the fashions, Nazanin flossed in an Area blazer dress from the label’s Fall 2018 collection.
The awards show recognizes the achievement and civic engagement of Latinx entertainers and media figures.
While accepting his award, the War & Leisure singer got all choked up as he dedicated the honor to his grandmother, who passed away recently. See his emotional acceptance speech below:

Afro Latina hottie/former "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" Amara La Negra worked her magic on the carpet before hitting the stage.
"The Real" co-host Adrienne Bailon sashayed down the carpet in an embroidered NF By Nour gown before her husband Israel Houghton ripped it off when she got home:
