The 10th anniversary of Time Inc.’s Essence “Black Women in Hollywood Awards,” will air as a primetime television event on Sunday, March 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.  For the past decade, the star-studded celebration has been at the forefront of spotlighting Hollywood’s most creative and accomplished African-American female visionaries both in front of the camera and behind the scenes.
