When Issa Rae watched Oprah Winfrey being honored at Essence magazine's Black Women in Hollywood Awards last year, the actress hoped she would one day be recognized in the same fashion. Rae, Janelle Monae, Aja Naomi King and Yara Shahidi will be honored Thursday in Los Angeles at the magazine's 10th annual awards. Now I feel like I can be on that journey." This year's awards recognize "Hollywood's Next Generation." Singer-actress Monae starred in two films up for best picture at the Oscars, "Hidden Figures" and "Moonlight." King is featured on television's "How to Get Away With Murder" and Shahidi appears on the sitcom "black-ish." "These women are making their own waves," said Vanessa K. We think about who are going to be the women to pick up the mantle. This year, we are taking a look at the new Hollywood." De Luca said the awards provide an opportunity for the actresses to network with each other.
Past honorees include Oprah Winfrey, Viola Davis, Halle Berry, Taraji P. "I used to say, 'It would be so cool to be up there,' but I didn't imagine it now," Rae, creator and star of HBO's "Insecure," said in a phone interview.

WEST SENECA, NY—Expressing a mixture of alarm and heartache over the boy’s recently discovered disorder, the parents of diehard 8-year-old Buffalo Bills fan Cody Brenner told reporters Tuesday that their son had begun showing early signs of masochism.It’s such a tough process, and requires such a commitment of time and self-examination, that it must really weed out those who are serious and committed to the process. Actually I can’t think of one I’ve ever put my hat into the ring for in my entire life (public, feel free to fact check this and let me know if I’ve got this wrong). As many would know, I’ve also commented publicly, how much I disagree, with very few exceptions, with women’s only lists, events etc.So, what gives…am I just a massive, garden variety, common-place hypocrite? Those who follow me on twitter and some of my workmates know I’m verbose on paper (not in person as I’m a hideous introvert who finds its excruciatingly exhausting to communicate with them in person), and I write as the best method I know to think through how I feel about things.There are plenty of reasons to fear and protest the president's proposed budget.
