All-Def Movie Awards

The All-Def Movie awards was a last minute thought up event planned by Russell Simmons. It took place at Hollywood’s Lure Night Club and was hosted by Chris Rocks Brother, Tony. The event was to”celebrate the un-celebrated ” against a backdrop of the” Oscars So white controversy.”

“This is not a shot at the Oscars,” Rock started the show saying. “This is just our awards show done our way. Everything’s better when we add our flavor on it.”

A number of notable names were in attendance, including Ice Cube and son O’Shea Jackson Jr. of “Straight Outta Compton,” model Amber Rose and actors Marlon Wayans, Michael Ealy and Terry Crews.

The event was far from what one can expect at the Academy Awards, for good reason. Most of the categories for the show were in jest — best helpful white person, best black survivor, etc. But that’s exactly how Simmons envisioned it.

“It’s not a protest,” he said from the stage. “It’s a celebration, a celebration of people who otherwise would not be celebrated.”

In the year of #OscarsSoWhite, BET just launched an award show for film
