While the biographical drama starring Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monáe, and Octavia Spencer didn’t take any honors from the recent Golden Globe ceremony, Hidden Figures took the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture. Teary-eyed and astounded, the three lead actresses took the stage to receive their award on behalf of the cast.
Taraji P. Henson took the microphone and gave an empowered speech about how it was an honor for her to share the story of the women who helped put the first men into space. “This story is about unity, this story is about what happens when we put our differences aside,” Henson says. “And we come together as a human race, we win. Love wins. Every time. Thank you so much for appreciating the work we’ve done. Thank you so much for appreciating these women, they are hidden figures no more!” Watch below.
