“Black-ish” actress Tracee Ellis Ross covers the February 2018 issue of Glamour magazine photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Jillian Davison.
On becoming, in 2017, the first black woman in more than 30 years to win the Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy: “There’s the personal gratification: I have dreamt of moments like these since I was a little girl, accepting my Oscar in the mirror. So it’s a dream come true. Oh my God, I made it. Pinch me. But what has been way more impactful for me is the larger meaning…When another woman or another woman of color has a win, I feel like it’s my win. I feel like it’s a ceiling breaking open. And so the nominations, even the win, really feels like it’s not mine. It’s like something becomes more possible.”
On recently hosting the American Music Awards where her mom, Diana Ross, received the Lifetime Achievement Award: “The Diana Ross we all know kind of doesn’t hold a candle to the mom that I have, in her extraordinary ability to love. What was most impactful about that moment to me was that my mother was receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award for her career, and the most important thing to my mom was to have her entire family onstage with her.”
