Broadway's Cynthia Erivo Becomes Two-Time Oscar Nominee With Harriet

Entertainment

That woman was Cynthia Erivo, for her starring role in Harriet.

In addition to her acting nomination, Erivo also has a Best Original Song nomination for Stand Up, which can be seen in Harriet.

Prominent Pakistani actor Mehwish Hayat like many others have criticised Oscar 2020 nominations over lack of diversity.

Cynthia Erivo attends the 25th annual Critics' Choice Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

In a statement to Access Hollywood, Cynthia reacted to the exciting nominations, "To receive two Oscar nominations for a film paying tribute to Harriet Tubman, a person whose heart and spirit are the embodiment of courage, makes this morning's news beyond anything I could have ever imagined".

However, considering all of the films that came out in 2019 that were made by women and people of color that the BAFTAs chose not to nominate, this feels like a rather disingenuous statement.

Cynthia Erivo attends the premiere of HBO's "The Outsider" at DGA Theater in Los Angeles, California.

"I work hard and every single person of color who is working in these films this year has worked really hard, and there are many of them who deserve to be celebrated. and no women directors, I was just like.'C'mon.'"

According to her, the invitation didn't represent the people of color in the right light, and that it felt like it was calling her on as an entertainer rather than as a person who was part of the film industry.

We'll be rooting for her on February 9th, when the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony airs on ABC.

Charlize Theron is also being nominated for her role as Megyn Kelly in "Bombshell" in the Performance by an actress in a leading role category and was thrilled with the honors.
