All hail the Queen!
Queen Latifah just took home the Screen Actors Guild award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for her role in HBO’s Bessie.
“I’m in shock right now,” Latifah said in her acceptance speech. “Thank you so much!”
Latifah continued in the hopes of inspiring others to pursue their dreams no matter what.
“I hope that anyone out there who does not come in the package people say you should,” Latifah added. “Keep fighting for it. Flip those rocks over. Keep pushing, keep turning. You can do it. You build your own boxes, not people. So knock that thing away, and do you!”
Latifah is a veteran when it comes to the SAG Awards—the multi-talented actress snagged her first award in 2003 for her role in Chicago, and then again in 2008 for Life Support.
Congrats, Queen Latifah!
