Jordan and Ryan Coogler accepted the award on behalf of the cast, and Coogler left the crowd –– and audiences everywhere –– with words of deep gratitude. "This is for you, the audience, for everyone who bought tickets, who stood out in the cold, who raised money for youngsters to come see the movie, it was really humbling to see it," said Coogler.
