BET Presents the American Black Film Festival Honors 2017 “Show-stopping Performances”

On Friday, February 17th at 8:00PM ET., BET and the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) is set to present the American Black Film Festival Honors, highlighting the incredible achievements of some incredible black men and women in the movie industry.

For this year’s show, BET and ABFF will be honoring five different actors and actresses that have broken down barriers this year in more ways than one.

With the beautiful and talented Regina Hall handling hosting duties for the exciting event, BET and ABFF will celebrate some of Hollywood’s most iconic artists. First up is the veteran role model Denzel Washington, who will be appropriately given the “Hollywood Legacy Award” for his work this year in Fences and The Magnificent Seven. The growingly popular Issa Rae will be awarded with the Rising Star Award after she broke onto the scene this year and even became the center of the “Issa…” trend we see on social media. Both Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray and popular TV show host and actor Terrence Howard will take home the Excellence in the Arts Award” for their sheer brilliance in the movie and entertainment world.

In addition to those honorees, BET announces that Viola Davis, Lee Daniels, Common, Morris Chestnut and Omari Hardwick are on board to present during the annual ceremony. Attendees and viewers will also get to enjoy sultry performances from crooners Maxwell and Dionne Farris, who will each take the stage during the night.

This year’s nominees for Movie of the Year and TV Show of the Year feature some fierce competition due to the fact that each nominee is worthy of winning the award. Here are the nominees for each category:

“Movie of the Year”:
• THE BIRTH OF A NATION (Fox Searchlight)
• FENCES (Paramount)
• HIDDEN FIGURES (20th Century Fox)
• MOONLIGHT (A24)
• QUEEN OF KATWE (The Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)

“Television Show of the Year”:
• ATLANTA (FX)
• BLACK-ish (ABC)
• INSECURE (HBO)
• POWER (STARZ)
• QUEEN SUGAR (OWN)

The winners for each category is based on fan-voting, as well as a vote from a blue ribbon panel made up of executives, film makers and film critics. As we said, each of these nominees are deserving of the award, so let’s see who prevails!

What’s guaranteed to be a night to remember, BET and ABFF are poised to make their 2017 award show the best one yet. Jeff Friday, the CEO of ABFF Ventures, had this to say:

“We are excited to partner with BET again for the 2017 American Black Film Festival Honors. The show is a crucial platform, highlighting the efforts and successes of African American talent in film and television. This year will celebrate the remarkable works of some of today’s most sought after actors, directors and producers.”

Be sure to tune into BET on Wednesday, February 22nd at 8:00PM ET. to enjoy the 2017 American Black Film Festival Honors!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  • I’m curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using? I’m having some minor security problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

    Virtually all of whatever you claim happens to be supprisingly legitimate and that makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. Your piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this particular subject goes. But there is actually one issue I am not really too cozy with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of your point, allow me see what the rest of the readers have to say.Very well done.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
