Beyonce was named entertainer of the year, beating out NBA superstar LeBron James, actors Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), and director Ryan Coogler (Black Panther).

“Regina King, I love you so much. You taught us patience, persistence and how to be masterful in your craft,” Beyonce told the crowd. “Chadwick Boseman is teaching children to dream and to be seen as kings. LeBron James has taught us the strength of all forms, leading by example and providing education to our kids. Ryan Coogler tells our stories in a way that celebrates our history and proves we do have power.”

Jay-Z was another big winner at the ceremony. The hip-hop icon received the president's award for his efforts through the Shawn Carter Foundation and serving as co-founder of the REFORM Alliance.
