Earlier tonight, Queen Latifah’s stellar Bessie Smith bio pic, Bessie took home the 2015 EMMY for Outstanding Television Movie. During an interview with BILLBOARD prior to the awards, Queen Latifah (shown atop during an ealier awards show) revealed what attracted her to the role.
“She was fearless and flawed in a lot of ways. She was perfectly imperfect, and I can relate to that. It reminded me of the ups and downs of my life in this business and my journey. It was the first time I ever watched a movie with me in it and cried.”
Congrats to the entire cast.
