In a night of celebrating Black Excellence the Stars came out for the 2018 African American Film Critics Association Awards at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood, California. The top honors for the night went to Jordan Peele for his break out hit "Get Out"and also bestowed an honor was the breakout Actress Tiffany Haddish. The AAFCA Awards have emerged as one of the premiere award shows and I feel that it needs to be televised. With other prominent award shows such as NAACP Image Awards and the Essence Black Women In Hollywood Awards, the AAFCA Awards needs a home for a network to showcase this incredible event.
