Danai Gurira is doing the most and living her best life while she does it. This week she made history by becoming the first-ever Zimbabwean woman to host the Screen Actors Guild nominees announcement in Hollywood and she did so alongside America Ferreira on Wednesday morning.

We all knew that Wednesday was going to be #DanaiDay and the Black Panther star did not disappoint when she stepped up to the podium to unveil the nominees for the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards which will be taking place in January.

Danai arrived at the Pacific Design Center’s SilverScreen Theater in West Hollywood where she rocked a beautiful navy dress with floral sleeves while also pairing it up with gorgeous red stiletto heels that looked as if they were made out of suede.

She looked the part, and she definitely acted the part too as she delivered the biggest nomination news of the month in front of millions of viewers around the world. The entire event was streamed live on the Screen Actor's Guild website and she and her co-host charmed audiences as they revealed every single nomination at this year's show.

The show was dominated by Joker, which scooped two big nominations, as well as the new Ford V Ferrari film starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon. Dnaia's co-star in Black Panther, Lupita Nyong'o scooped a nomination in the Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Leading Role category for her performance in Us.
