Jamie Foxx Receives Vanguard Award At Critics Choice Association
The acclaimed actor was honored with the Vanguard Award for his outstanding performance in Amazon Prime Video’s “The Burial.”
Jurnee Smollett, his co-star in the thriller/drama film,presented the award, praising Foxx as a “true vanguard, a pioneer who has broken down barriers and inspired generations of artists like myself to be bold, audacious dreamers.”
Smollett noted of her time acting with Foxx: “Even though we were playing rivals battling it out in the courtroom, in him, I found a great cheerleader — one who, on our very first day shooting y’all, he came, and right after the third take, he came up to me, he’s like, ‘Man, you are killing this role.’ Now, I don’t think he understands what that kind of support means to someone like me who’s watched him my entire life.”
The event marked Foxx’s return to the Hollywood scene after a medical complication in April that temporarily halted the production of his upcoming Netflix film “Back in Action.”

The “Day Shift” actor continued with a mix of wit and emotion, discussing his recent health battle, stating, “I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy, because it’s tough.”
He expressed a newfound appreciation for life and his art, adding, “I have a new respect for life. I have a new respect for my art. I watched so many movies and listened to so many songs trying to have the time go by. Don’t give up on your art, man, don’t give up.”

In an emotional video message released in May, he alluded to the severity of his condition, thanking everyone for their prayers. In the lengthy Instagram clip, he said, “First of all, I want to say thank you to everybody that’s prayed, man, and sent me messages. I cannot even begin to tell you how far it took me and how it brought me back. I went through something that I thought I would never ever go through.”
He continued, “I know a lot of people were waiting, wanting to hear updates. But, to be honest with you, I just didn’t want you to see me like that, man. You know, I want you to see me laughing and having a good time, partying, cracking a joke, doing a movie or television show. I didn’t want you to see me with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was going to make it through. ”
Foxx credited his family for saving his life, adding: “To be honest with you, my sister, Deidra Dixon, and my daughter, Corinne Marie, saved my life. So to them, to God, to a lot of great medical people, I’m able to leave you this video.”
