Lindo, who stars in the Hulu drama “UnPrisoned,” recently starred in Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods” and “The Harder They Fall” for Netflix. His other film credits include “The Cider House Rules,” “Get Shorty.”
Delroy will begin production on “Blade” for Marvel Studios this Summer. Other individuals slated to receive nods at the event include Marla Gibbs, who will receive the Legend Award and Jennifer Hudson, host of Warner Bros. Unscripted Television’s “The Jennifer Hudson Show.”
They will be honored at an invitation-only, in-person luncheon at Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica, California, on August 27.
