Sheryl Lee Ralph was left speechless after Oprah, Beyoncé and more sent the actress large floral arrangements following her inspirational Emmy win
Oprah Winfrey , has just raised the bar for sending flower arrangements for congratulations. The legendary TV talk show host surprised the actress Sheryl Lee Ralph and warmed the hearts of many on social media after sending the Abbott Elementary star a huge bouquet of pink and white flowers for winning her first-ever Emmy award earlier this week.
“Wow, yes!” yelled Ralph as she stood waiting for two men carrying the huge vase of flowers to approach her in her driveway. At one point, the 65-year-old looks into the camera and addresses the entertainment mogul directly: “Oprah you know how to make flowers girl. Many Thanks.”
The stunning moment was captured by her son Etienne Maurice and uploaded to his TikTok. He was forced to interrupt the video after being called to help the delivery men with the colossal decor, which tilted slightly during his journey to Ralph’s front door.
The entrepreneur captioned the post: “Literally the biggest bouquet of flowers I’ve ever seen in my life. We had to carry it through the back!”
Fans gushed over the sweet moment as the roughly 40-second clip made its way through social media, including one Instagram user who wrote: “This is how you give flowers to someone lol. So deserved.” “From one queen to another,” commented another. “I love it.”
“I love it when we show up for each other!” chimed in a third person. “Man I love this!!! Real support meets differently.”
The appreciation for the iconic actress continued to flow in the hours that followed as Ralph continued to receive flowers from other Hollywood stars, including Grammy Award-winning entertainer Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter and rapper Kid Cudi, who she and the “Abbott Elementary” watched together Creator Quinta Bruson “The win was truly inspirational.”
Along with her gorgeous array of white and yellow flowers came a note from “Break My Soul” singer and collaborator Deena Jones that read, “To the original Dreamgirl, congratulations.”
Ralph was speechless. The ‘Moesha’ actress revealed she had lost her voice but said the flowers were ‘wonderful’. She later thanked the music star with another inspirational sentiment in a video shared online, writing: “Everyone has their own special dream and all your dreams can come true. Just look in the mirror and love what is in front of you. Thanks @beyonce don’t forget to dream girls!
Ralph, who began her career on Broadway in the late 1970s thanks to her breakthrough role as Deena Jones in Dreamgirls, for which she received a Tony nomination, became the second black woman to win the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance as teacher Barbara Howard on the hit ABC series.
During her acceptance speech at the 74th annual event on Monday, September 12, Ralph sang the first verse of Dianne Reeve’s 1993 song “Endangered Species.” She later told the crowd, “Anybody who’s ever had a dream and thought, that his dream wouldn’t come true, couldn’t come true, I’m here to tell you that’s what believing looks like – that’s what striving looks like. And never, ever give up.”
