We don’t know why the cast of Hidden Figures was so shocked to win Best Ensemble at the SAG Awards. They brought the story of the unsung heroes of NASA to life with such heart and truth, they seemed as likely a cast as any to us.

But it was Taraji P. Henson who spoke with the ferocity of Cookie Lyon and the intelligence of Katherine Goble, saying:
“When we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race, we win. Love wins every time.”
