#Issa WIN for Issa Rae!

Before closing out Black History Month, the “Insecure” actress/creator made her way to a panel discussion at The Hollywood Confidential with creator Steve Jones (above) held at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills.

The Hollywood Confidential is a forum where Hollywood’s elite come together for a discussion to reveal tips, strategies, and secrets, as well as recount their own behind-the-scenes experiences to professionals trying to get their foot in the door. This week's panel focused on elements of acting, beauty, health, fitness and the breakthroughs taking place around diversity and inclusion.

Not only did the Golden Globe nominee talk about her hit HBO series, she was also presented the Trailblazer Award for her breakthrough in the entertainment industry by Steve and Walgreens Diversity Specialist Rona Forte.

As you may or may not have known, Issa used an online platform (YouTube) to storm her way into the entertainment industry. She went from “Awkward Black Girl” to having one of the top cable series on television.

Most people talk about what they want, Issa actually did it. And did it on her own terms. Gotta love it!

She had been nominated twice before this year's awards. The "How To Get Away With Murder" star was up for Best Actress in 2012 for her role in The Help and she was up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Doubt. Third time's s a charm!
