Halle Bailey Set To Be Honored At Essence’s Upcoming Black Women In Hollywood Awards

Halle Bailey has recently been revealed as one of the honorees for the upcoming Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards.

As stated in a press release, the ceremony, to be hosted by Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man, will recognize not only Halle but also actress Danielle Brooks, screenwriter Nkechi Okoro Carroll, and STARZ’s president of original programming Kathryn Busby.

“The intersection of joy and justice is where community thrives,” Essence Ventures President and CEO, Caroline Wanga said. “We don’t ever need to diminish our collective power and accomplishments; due to the work we are still doing to exist equitably. The past year tested this intersection within one of our most sacred cultural realms, when the entertainment industry faced the gridlock of stakeholder value and WORTH.”

Wanga added, “In parallel, the assets that the industry creates as a direct infusion of joy that propels our community through the depth and breadth of life, were stagnated as a clear and just outcome stayed uncertain. While parts of the incongruence have stabilized, there is still significant work to be done to create sustainable change.”

Halle has been in the spotlight recently for her remarkable post-pregnancy physique following the birth of her son, Halo, with rapper DDG. Just this past Sunday, the singer-turned-actress stole the show on the red carpet at the 2024 Grammy Awards, dazzling in a gold gown that showcased her impressive figure after giving birth.
