Make-up artist D’Andre Michael and MUAH winner Camille Friend presented the Distinguished Artisan Award to Angela Bassett.  

Bassett told the room full of local 706 artisans, “Before anything is shot, edited or shown on the screen, there’s a team made up of all of you who work long and hard – I see it – to help us bring to life the characters on screen.” Bassett continued, “You are just as responsible as I am for who the character is, how the world perceives and receives them and for how that character is remembered.”
