LOS ANGELES, Ca. — Ain’t no party like a Hollywood party cause a Hollywood party don’t stop. Empire co-creator Lee Daniels received the 2,595th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday. The 56-year-old director [who’s openly gay] spoke for several minutes at the star-studded ceremony in front of the Hudson Apartments on Hollywood Boulevard. Daniels, if you recall, received a nomination for best director in 2010 for his exceptional work in “Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.” He was also nominated for best director of Fox’s hip hop drama “Empire.”

Gabourey Sidibe, who won an Oscar for ‘best supporting actress’ in Precious, joined Daniels in speaking at the event. Empire star Jussie Smollett and actress Queen Latifah also shared a few congratulatory words. “Everything I do, everything I am is because of my tribe,” said Daniels during his speech.

As founder of Lee Daniels Entertainment, Daniels made his film debut with the 2001 release of “Monster’s Ball,” which gave Halle Berry an Oscar for best actress. Four years later, Daniels made his directing debut in the 2005 crime thriller “Shadowboxer” starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Helen Miren. Daniels’ most recent film, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” held the No. 1 spot at the box office for three consecutive weeks.

Congratulations Mr. Daniels!

    I have no issues with gay people, my only thing is. why is it only gay black men are getting break through success in Hollywood? I know many straight talented black directors.

  2. black men getting fuked for money..very sad day in history..fukin for a check..thats why black men cant ever win. everything n everyone is against black men..even black faggets

  3. I see we have some homophobic assholes on this board

  4. Why does the gay community call us homophobic when we disagree with their lifestyle. Why should we be forced to condone that garbage. I’m not perfect but the only homophobic feelings I had is when I lived the life as lesbian. Thank God I serve a God that deliver me from that mess. Now I’m HOMOPHOBIC FREE.

    THE NEW BLACK AMERICA
    ADMITTED SELL OUTS ….GAY & PROUD

  11. he’s full of shit….

  12. The reason why this man is so successful in white Hollywood is that he produces the goonery shit that Hollywood likes to see black people, mainly black women in. This man is a dangerous sell out, and black actresses need to think twice about working with his shit. He just reinforces every bit of black sterotype you can think of, and for some reason he preys on black actresses to do it.

  13. Sorry but I can’t stand gays

  14. Ethiopian Christian

    he makes us black gays look weak and like mental slaves! He value white men over black men that is why his husband is white he love that social symbolic status a white lover gives him among Hollywood and Jewish investors

  15. Black women are so fucked up they make black men gay………. hahahahaha!

  16. I love what lee daniels has done with Empire but im not feeling this new show STAR. I will watch the premiere before I fully judge but I don’t know about this. Even Queen Latifah looked out of place.

  17. Good producer but I don’t like how he treated Monique

  18. Sell out. Pathetic black man.

    Did anyone watch the ‘Star’ premiere by any chance? I did, and I facepalmed at Daniels’ attempt to address racial tensions. You know that one white kid in real life/YT that always says ,”I grew up poor, so white privilege doesn’t exist, you racist beyotch?” That was basically the summary of the show in a nutshell

  20. this fag will suck any dick to keep his money flow and sell out any brother or sister who as he said don’t play ball that tells us who his master is and who dick he sucks…
