“Hidden Figures” actress accepted the MTV Movie and TV Award for “Fight Against the System” on Sunday on behalf of her “Hidden Figures” cast and filmmakers and used the platform to make a call for unity, saying that God cleverly made everyone different for a reason.
“The message of the movie is togetherness,” Hensen said in her acceptance speech. She claimed that all people should come together regardless of gender, race or sexuality and she credited that level of unity to God.
“God is very clever. He made us all different for a reason, so we better figure it out,” Henson declared.
The golden popcorn was presented to Henson by “Blackish” star Tracee Ellis Ross and U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
“Artists, actors, singers and citizens have a unique ability to speak out and inspire change,” Waters said before introducing the nominees.
