Whether Donald Trump likes it or not (hint: he doesn't), celebrities have a platform—and the more they use their platform to expand visibility, and represent the unique and often-marginalized voices around our country, the better. Which is a long-winded way of saying Tracee Ellis Ross killed it while accepting the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy, delivering a speech that resonates far beyond Hollywood.
"Oh my goodness, thank you Hollywood Foreign Press Association, thank you. It's my first time here, guys. It's a nice room, I like it. This is for all of the women, women of color, and colorful people—whose stories, ideas, thoughts, are not always considered worthy, and valid, and important. But I want you to know that I see you. We see you. It is an honor to be on this show, Black-ish. To continue expanding the way we are seen and known, and to show the magic, and the beauty, and the sameness of a stories and stories that are outside where the industry usually looks."
Thank goodness for women like Tracee. 💥
