The 35-year-old Oscar-winning actress and her Black Panther co-stars Chadwick Boseman and Danai Gurira were on hand at the gala to present a new scholarship — The Black Panther Scholarship — created by Walt Disney Studios, which gave one girl from THR‘s Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program a scholarship to Loyola Marymount University, worth $250,000.

The program, now in its ninth year, is executed in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles. “We know that if we want to live in a world that looks more like Wakanda, the first step is you invest in women and girls,” Danai said (via THR), who received a loud round of applause from the audience.

Also in attendance at the gala was Awkwafina, Lena Dunham, Ali Wong, Hannah Gadsby and Loni Love.

Lena Dunham Apologizes to Aurora Perrineau: 'I Believe You'

Lena Dunham is apologizing to actress Aurora Perrineau after defending Girls writer Murray Miller against sexual misconduct allegations.

If you don’t know, over a year ago, Aurora accused Miller of sexual misconduct and Lena came to his defense with a public statement.

Now, in a new essay for THR, Lena is owning up to her “terrible mistake.”

“I made a terrible mistake. When someone I knew, someone I had loved as a brother, was accused, I did something inexcusable: I publicly spoke up in his defense. There are few acts I could ever regret more in this life,” Lena wrote. “I didn’t have the ‘insider information’ I claimed but rather blind faith in a story that kept slipping and changing and revealed itself to mean nothing at all. I wanted to feel my workplace and my world were safe, untouched by the outside world (a privilege in and of itself, the privilege of ignoring what hasn’t hurt you) and I claimed that safety at cost to someone else, someone very special.”

“To Aurora: You have been on my mind and in my heart every day this year. I love you. I will always love you. I will always work to right that wrong. In that way, you have made me a better woman and a better feminist. You shouldn’t have been given that job in addition to your other burdens, but here we are, and here I am asking: How do we move forward? Not just you and I but all of us, living in the gray space between admission and vindication,” Lena added. “I see you, Aurora. I hear you, Aurora. I believe you, Aurora.”

Lena Dunham Breaks Silence on Jack Antonoff & Lorde Rumors, Admits She Hasn't Talked to Lorde Since Her Breakup

Lena Dunham is candidly speaking about the rumors that her friend Lorde and her ex boyfriend Jack Antonoff dated after her and Jack‘s early 2018 breakup.

“It was so embarrassing…It was awful because I felt like a weird…I don’t think anything happened between them,” Lena told The Cut. “I can never know someone else’s life. I have never spoken to Ella [Lorde] about it. We haven’t talked since Jack and I broke up. It was awful, and I couldn’t do anything about it except trust that what he was saying to me was true.”

Jack denied any rumors that he was romantically involved with Lorde. If you don’t know, Jack co-wrote and co-produced her album Melodrama.

About her five-year romance with Jack, Lena added, “Our relationship probably lasted longer than it should have. He’s a very loyal person, so he was not going to bail when the going got tough. He literally held my hand while I got an enema on New Year’s Eve while his family celebrated. But when you’re sick, so much energy goes into making sure the other person is well that you’re not even noticing maybe our schedules aren’t compatible. Maybe we want different things out of our lives. Maybe we have different attitudes about what family means. Maybe these essential questions that people have to ask themselves all the time are not being asked, because we just want to make sure that I don’t pass out at the grocery store.”
