Over the weekend, director, writer and actor Tyler Perry celebrated the opening of his new studio, Tyler Perry Studios, with a gala in Atlanta on Saturday night. The 50-year-old hosted a who’s who of Hollywood at his new 330 acre studio, including legends whom who he said inspired him and were honored throughout the night, including Denzel Washington, Spike Lee, Will Smith, Sidney Poitier, Oprah Winfrey, Cicely Tyson and more. The massive turnout was heartwarming to Perry.

“For people to drop what they’re doing in their very busy schedules to come and join me in this moment is beyond anything I could’ve imagined,” he told Variety on the red carpet for the gala. “It makes me happy. It makes me want to cry. It makes me grateful. It’s just I’m beyond. I’m over the moon right now.”

To give you an idea of the caliber of famous faces who showed up, there was Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Oprah and Stedman Graham and many, many more.
