Tracee Ellis Ross’ Golden Globe Win Made Diana Ross ‘So Proud’

Tracee Ellis Ross is TV’s golden girl after making a splash at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards!

On Tuesday, the “Black-ish” star spoke with “Extra” special correspondent Hilaria Baldwin about the memorable moment, saying, “I was the first black woman nominated and winning in this category since 1983.”

Being able to share the honor with her famous mom, Diana Ross, makes it so much sweeter, “My mother won a Golden Globe 44 years ago [for 'Lady Sings the Blues'] and I join the ranks of some very special mother-daughter teams.”

Other moms and daughters who have won Golden Globes include Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson; Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis; Diane Ladd and Laura Dern; and Tippi Hedren and Melanie Griffith.

Ross added that her mother was “so proud. So proud. I feel her pride and that makes it even more special.”

Diana, known for her sparkly and extravagant outfits onstage, must have passed on the glamour gene to her daughter, Tracee, who shared, “Glamorous does not make me tired. Glamorous totally invigorates me. I mean, I come from glamour and I'm happy to take the torch.”
