In case you haven’t been paying attention: Keke Palmer is pretty cool. She’s been killing it on our screens since the early 2000s and has made a name for herself everywhere from music to TV to movies to Broadway. And all the while, she’s been telling it like it is—even when she has to say “sorry to this man” for it. On Wednesday, Keke was honoured by one of her equally-candid peers, Busy Philipps, for being an inspirational and truthful female voice in the entertainment industry.

At the #BlogHer19 Creators Summit in New York, Busy virtually presented Keke with the “Voices of the Year” Award and her presentation basically just turned into a gush-fest over the honouree.

“Keke, you deserve all the awards–you are such a star,” Busy said in a pre-recorded message. “This girl has all the talent. All of it. And she should get everything. I want you to have everything.” Same, Busy.

The sweet message and award were a total surprise for Keke and the star got teary as she accepted. How in love are we with women supporting women? Before receiving the honour, Keke was interviewed by Style Caster entertainment editor Aramide Tinubu and SHE Media CEO Samantha Skey about her recent accolades, including her role in Hustlers and new permanent gig as co-host on Good Morning America. 

Keke wasn’t the only inspiring woman sharing sage advice in the age of the internet. Other speakers included Sarah Jessica Parker, Connie Britton, Shadowhunters actress Katherine McNamara and YouTuber Hannah Hart, all offering their own unique insights.
