Imagine being awarded alongside the likes of Oprah Winfrey!

Gabrielle Union, first-time Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis, Skyfall starlet Naomie Harris and the OWN head honcho were just some of the incredible stars honored during today's Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

And celebs at the bash couldn't stop gushing about Ms. Winfrey.

"It's Oprah, as soon as she speaks, as soon as she walks into a room, its something that's going to motivate, that's going to uplift you," Kelly Rowland told us. "I think God gives that gift to very few people and he gave it to her."

"It's insane," Union said of getting awarded along with Winfrey, before gushing about the media mogul, "Very rarely do you meet people who are as advertised. She's everything and then some. And she keeps giving more, which is the true sign of power."

Check out all the boldfaced names in attendance during today's big bash.
