BET Networks and the American Black Film Festival joined forces to recognize diversity in Hollywood at a star-studded event at the Beverly Hilton Sunday.
The first ABFF Awards: A Celebration of Hollywood brought many stars out. The show was launched by the American Black Film Festival and BET – in response to the Oscars lack of diversity in this year’s nominations.
The mission of the ABFF Honors is “to celebrate Black culture by recognizing individuals, movies and television shows that have had a significant impact on American entertainment, as well as those who are proponents of championing diversity and inclusion in Hollywood.”
The event, which focuses on individuals, television programs and movies of 2015 that celebrate black culture, honored Diahann Carroll with the Hollywood Legacy Award.
The event was hosted by Mike Epps, and producer Will Packer was honored with the Distinguished ABFF Alumni Award.
