Her acceptance speech was very concise and pointed.
First, I would like to thank the Academy for showing that it can be about the performance and not the politics. I want to thank Miss Hattie McDaniel for enduring all that she had to so that I would not have to. Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey because you touched it, the whole world saw it. Ricky Anderson, our attorney of Anderson & Smith, thank you for your hard work. My entire BET family, my Precious family, thank you so much.
She thanked the Academy for showing that politics do not win over talent, Hattie McDaniel for making the way,Tyler Perry, Oprah, her attorneys her entire BET and Precious families, and told her husband Sidney:
To my amazing husband Sidney, thank you for showing me that sometimes you have to forego doing what’s popular in order to do what’s right. And baby, you were so right. God bless us all.
