Jamie Foxx, Jordan Peele & More Get Special Honors at AAFCA Awards 2020!

Jamie Foxx and Jordan Peele happily hit the stage to speak at The African American Film Critics Association’s 2020 AAFCA Awards held at the Taglyan Cultural Complex on Wednesday (January 22) in Hollywood.

The guys along with Eddie Murphy (not pictured) were among some of the honorees at the 11th annual ceremony in Los Angeles.

“People say so much about the other awards, but it’s special when it comes from your own people,” Jamie said (via USA Today), who won best supporting actor for his role in Just Mercy.

“It’s just special,” Jamie added after receiving the award from the organization, which actively reviews films with an emphasis on projects that include the black experience. The awards mainly highlight films produced, written, directed and starring people from the African diaspora along with other ethnic projects that break new ground.

Also in attendance at the ceremony were Sterling K. Brown, Issa Rae, Lena Waithe, Bong Joon Ho, Melina Matsoukas, Lil Rel Howery, Garcelle Beauvais and Trevor Jackson.
