UPFRONT feat. Miss Black America ATL Pageant, Golden Globe Snubs and more (AUDIO)

Ray Cornelius with Sharronda Williams

Check out this weekend's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features my conversations with Miranda Childress, producer of the Miss Black America Atlanta Pageant and TV & film critic Sharronda Williams. 

The Miss Black America Atlanta Pageant is taking place on Thursday, December 19 at 8:30 p.m. at the Cobb Energy Centre and promises to be one spectacular event. The show is presented by Georgia Whirl Productions and was created to support, educate, and uplift its delegates through workshops, community services projects, educational courses and personal development. GW's Miranda Childress talks to UPFRONT about what fans can expect and the changing face of pageants. 

Nominations for the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guildand Critics' Choice Awards were announced this week and social media has been buzzing about their lack of diversity and inclusion. Pay or Wait and TV & film critic Sharronda Williams is here to discuss snubs, surprises and Oscar predictions.
