In Honor Of Lupita



Let's not feel sorry for Lupita Nyong'o.
She's a vision of beauty who always stops people in their tracks when at award shows and fashion events. She continues to be a working actress, which alone is why you go into the industry.
And let's not forget. She's WON The Academy Award for 2013's "12 Years A Slave." She's continually relevant in the public consciousness and will probably go down as one of Hollywood's finest actresses.
But on January 13th she was noticeably absent from the list of Best Actress nominees.
The Jordan Peele horror film "Us" was released in March, so to have had this kind of buzz going into 2020 speaks volumes. The film was, much like Peele's previous film "Get Out," was critically acclaimed, with Lupita's performance as a standout.
The Academy Awards will always have to deal with snubs and omissions. Taron Egerton's star turn as Elton John in "Rocketman" was noticeably absent. As was Awkwafina for "The Farewell," which both performers won Golden Globes. And there's more.
You're not going to please everyone. This is understandable. But such a tour de force performance from Lupita Nyong'o seems...well wrong.
I'm not going to throw in any other element that will divide. There's no need for that during these divisive times. This just has to do with a performer who masterfully played two roles in one and was captivating.
If anyone thought she was a one and done Oscar winner who won for a single performance...well, we can safely say that she's more than that.
