The 10th annual Governors Awards however highlighted the careers of honorary legends such as Cicely Tyson, "The Help" and "Diary of A Mad Black Woman" star and others.
"I think if I had not heard those words from her, none of this would make a difference to me," said Tyson, showing off her trophy to the heavens. "I know you didn’t want me to do this. But I did. And here it is."
Kathleen Kennedy is the first woman to ever receive the Thalberg Award.
“I’m proud to be the first woman to accept this award” she said, prompting a standing ovation, “but I’m not the first to deserve it, and I’m 100 percent sure I’m not the last. We all know there are changes in our industry that must be enacted,” she said. “As our industry grows and changes, who gets to tell their stories needs to grow and change as well. Each of us has the obligation to ensure that everyone who has a story to tell has the same opportunity that most of us have had.
“With the inclusion of these powerful new voices, we might just bring the world back to its senses – and maybe just maybe, shatter a few glass ceilings along the way.”
