December 6, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Jamie Foxx is savoring each precious moment following a challenging health journey. EOnline reports the acclaimed Django Unchained star left the audience in awe at the Critics Choice Association’s Celebration of Cinema & Television Honoring Black, Latino & AAPI Achievements as he graciously accepted the esteemed Vanguard Award.

Stepping onto the stage to receive the honor on December 4th, presented by his co-star in The Burial, Jurnee Smollett, Foxx expressed his gratitude, highlighting the significance of the moment.

“It’s crazy, I couldn’t do that six months ago. I couldn’t actually walk.”

“I want to thank everybody. I’ve been through something,” the Oscar winner said, referring to his health scare. “I’ve been through some things.” 

“I cherish every single minute now — it’s different,” he continued. “I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy because it’s tough when it’s almost over. When you see the tunnel, I saw the tunnel — I didn’t see the light.”

Jamie, whose presence was kept under wraps prior to the award show and notably absent from the red carpet, received the Vanguard Award in recognition of his distinguished career and standout performance in the Prime Video’s legal drama. 

The comedian chose not to delve into the specifics of his health journey during his acceptance, maintaining a sense of privacy around the matter.
