Ms. Hughes will be presented with the Reel Sisters Hattie McDaniel Award (formerly known as our Pioneer Award). Reel Sisters renamed the award to honor pioneers who opened the doors for Black women and other women of color in film, media and television. Hattie was the first African-American woman to receive an Oscar — overcoming the challenges facing Black actors in Hollywood where there were few acting jobs available to them and limited roles.
