The Critics Choice Association’s Celebration of Cinema and Television Honoring Black, Latino, and AAPI Achievements in 2023 | Festivals & Awards


Jamie Foxx’s surprise appearance to accept the Vanguard Award was the hit of the evening, as most know he’s been ill for a while, and this was his first public appearance. He began by thanking everyone and saying, “Six months ago, I couldn’t actually do that; I couldn’t actually walk.” He went on to talk about his frightening journey, how grateful he is to be alive, and to tell everyone that he is now back.
