Everybody keeps saying it’s a comeback. But hell, don’t call it a comeback. We’ve been here for years.”

“Even though we have our own awards show, I just want the other ones to be fair. I just hope they don’t go overboard next year and nominate too much black stuff out of guilt,” Anthony later said. “But tonight is not the night to focus on other awards shows. This is about us. This is our show. and it’s not a comeback. We have been here and we aren’t going anywhere.”
