The newest iteration of The Color Purple had the biggest Christmas Day opening since 2009 and sparked massive fanfare for its long list of talented stars. This is just another honor to add to the list.

Brooks, along with co-stars Fantasia Barrino, Taraji P. Henson and Phylicia Pearl Mpasi (to name a few) are being rightfully celebrated for their roles in the newest film adaptation of the best-selling novel, movie and broadway musical.

She and the rest of the cast are certainly winning now.
