I love this guy and he is an inspiration to what can be accomplished if you set your mind to it. His production studio is in Atlanta. When Hollywood pressured him to move because of politics he didn't budge. 

Read Tyler Perry's Entire, Inspirational 'Quilt' Speech from the 2020 Emmys

"Because in my grandmother’s quilt, there are no patches that represented Black people on television," he said as he accepted the award. "But in my quilt, her grandson is being celebrated by the Television Academy"

Tyler Perry just made history as the recipient of this year's Emmy Governors Award.

I absolutely love the Madea movies. The characters are based on all the people from his childhood. Nobody else could pull that off without a lot of criticism. They are certainly what I'm accustomed to.

Yep, kind of corny, yet funny too.
