Bill Cosby waves on his way down the red carpet
Comedian, actor and champion of the community Bill Cosby and Camille Cosby were awarded the Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis Arts & Humanitarian Award.
This wonderful night would not be complete without beginning on the red carpet. And there is nothing like the red carpet in Harlem in front of the Apollo on 125th street.
BET Holdings CEO Debra L. Lee
Harlem was out in full force to see the big names walk the carpet and they were not disappointed. The crowd went crazy when the triple threat himself, Jamie Foxx stepped out of the limo. “We love you Jaime” could be heard down the block. Always a crowd pleaser, Jamie posed for various fan photos, before moving on to the press for interviews. Other crowd favorites on red carpet were Patti LaBelle, Bill and Camille, Quincy Jones, Gayle King, the View’s Sherri Shepherd, Harlemite Dougie Fresh and of course Mariah Carey.
