…and it AIN’T #Oscarssowhite this year!
28 year old Daniel Kaluuya is killing the game with his Oscar nomination for best actor. Although this Brit native has been acting since he was in his teens, 2017 was his breakout year for his critically acclaimed performance in the horror movie ‘Get Out.’
We’ll be cheering you on Daniel from now until the opening night of Black Panther which hits theatres February 16 #ShamelessPlug. ✊🏾✊🏽✊🏿 (And continue to cheer you on for years to come!)
Now if you’ve been a fan of MADtv since the 90s then you have been following Jordan Peele‘s career for minute! The genius behind the hit film Get Out could become The first black director to win the category after being only the fifth ever nominated in Oscars history. We’re rooting for you Jordan!
Go Mary, go Mary! Mary J. Blige is the first person nominated for an acting performance and original song. Now the best original song category go to the writers of the song so our aunt Mary becomes the first person ever to be nominated for an acting performance and original song.
The nine time Grammy winner cowrote Mighty River for Mudbound for which she was also nominated in the supporting actress category.
Lets get it one more time! Go Mary, Go Mary!
As always #Team88 will be tuning into the show on Sunday March 4 and hosting our Twitter watch party starting at 6:30 PM, (CP time meaning 7 o’clock.)
Oh and shout out to our gyal Tiffany Haddish announcing the nominations! YASSS boo we see you. WE READY! 🙌🏾
