Few days after Disney-Pixar's movie, "Soul" won two top awards at the Gold Globes, actor Jamie Foxx expressed his gratitude for being part of the historical film.


Jamie Foxx had successfully cemented his place in Hollywood through his remarkable acting skills. He recently shared his thoughts after the Disney-Pixar film "Soul" bagged two awards at the Golden Globes.

"Soul" won Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score. The 53-year-old actor took to Instagram to express how he felt about the movie's achievement.

Foxx shared a screenshot from an article showing himself beside the animated film's lead star Joe Gardner, a passionate jazz pianist and music teacher.

Despite not winning an award for himself for this year's Golden Globes, Foxx earned public recognition as Pixar's first-ever Black star. The actor captioned his post:

"Humbled... thankful and blessed #goldenglobes @pixarsoul."


The post also noted that Foxx is the first-ever Black actor to win a Golden Globe Award. In 2005, he won the best actor award for "Ray," a biopic about the late R&B musician Ray Charles.

Many fans in the comment section congratulated Foxx for his accomplishments in the entertainment industry. One fan remarked that the actor has remained true to his craft.

Following the Golden Globe win, some fans expressed that they hoped the movie or even Foxx would earn many nominations for this year's Oscars.



Earlier, Fox said in an interview with Variety that he considered his role in Pixar's "Soul" as one of the "great things" that happened to him. The actor was the voice behind Joe.

Foxx shared he never had to apologize for being Black and never worried about his color.



The "Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me" star noted that it felt good to be the first African-American lead. The supporting cast members included Tina Fey, Graham Norton, Phylicia Rashad, and Angela Bassett.

Apart from being part of the cast, Foxx also admired how the film's creative team wanted the multi-hyphenated star to be himself and to express his Blackness.

Through the actor's character as Joe, the movie mainly focused on him and his love for jazz music. Aside from rhythm and blues, jazz is one of the most prominent features within the Black culture.

Foxx shared he never had to apologize for being Black and never worried about his color. Whenever he's himself, great things would happen to him.
