The 15th annual awards celebration that airs as a virtual experience on Monday, March 28 at 7 ET on ESSENCEStudios.com and ESSENCE.com, had a theme of highlighting “The Black Cinematic Universe” and it was bristling with Black Girl Magic.

“We believe Black women are the CEO’s of home, community, and industry. For a decade and a half, ESSENCE has spotlighted and honored the Black women who curate and shape Hollywood and the entertainment ecosystem from a variety of roles and positions,” said Caroline Wanga, ESSENCE CEO about this year’s celebration. “We are proud to again commemorate their achievements at our signature awards luncheon and throughout the year.

“This year—as we highlight the Black Cinematic Universe—our four honorees collectively exemplify multigenerational strength, influence, impact, and power in the tapestry of the honorees that preceded them and the honorees yet to come. We look forward to celebrating their achievements in unity with the 31 million Black women that call ESSENCE home and the communities they represent.”

This year’s star-studded affair was hosted by Snowfall panty melter Damson Idris who was joined backstage by Donald Glover. Glover presented Quinta Brunson with her award for the luncheon and joked about his first time meeting the writer/actress.

“As soon as we met, we immediately locked eyes – and argued,” Glover said, laughing, reports USA Today.
