Not enough words to describe the enormity of last night in Hollywood at the #GovernorsAward. When Ms. Tyson asked if I’d present to her, I was floored. She’s been a champion of mine since my very first film “I Will Follow.” I was beyond thrilled to hand her her long-overdue Oscar. Something she has wanted for so long. For my speech, I asked for one word to describe Ms. Tyson from many of us who adore her. Magnificent words flowed in. Whoopi Goldberg - Platinum-Standard Lupita Nyong’o - Vibrant Taraji Henson - A treasure Aunjanue Ellis - Unparalleled Regina King - Authentic Cynthia Erivo - Regal Shonda Rhimes - Legendary Anika Noni Rose - Our Gift Gabrielle Union - Unapologetic Amandla Steinberg - Groundbreaking Jada Pinkett Smith - Legendary Gugu Mbatha Raw - Trailblazing Kerry Washington - Divine Viola Davis - Our Muse Oprah Winfrey said without hesitation. “Noble. She is nobility personified.” Ms. Tyson is all those things. She is everything. May God continue to bless her life. She turns 95 next month. What a Queen.

"I'm not the first black women who's made something so beautiful that whatever-body that's awarding it/ should have been awarding it, it's just the time. It's just the time that I happened to be here."

Back in time, like Ava said that she grew up in a matriarchy and her aunt Denise used to take her to see plays up to theatre's outside Compton and that's where her journey began.
