What Does Hollywood Have in Store for Lupita?




.
Watch this video below which raises some very excellent points to make you think hmmm "Does a good point". 
.
I mean after the dust has now settled and Hollywood has gone crazy over our sexy chocolate talented african sister Lupita, now what? 
.
Is she going get great roles or do you think Hollywood would not know what to do with her as they discuss in the video?. Lets just be realistic. Have they ever known what to do, with any of our Excellent Great Black Actresses?. What do you think.? Lets discuss.
.
Dr. Boyce Watkins and Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses talk about the warnings, by others, to Lupita Nyong'o to avoid Tyler Perry. Interesting discussion. They talk about Denzel and Halle's degrading Oscar-winning roles.
.
They suggest that Lupita, should not concentrate on Holywood but also to consider projects produced in African countries because Hollywood won't know what to do with her.
.
.
Do you agree with critics who say, she should never appear in a Tyler Perry movies. Personally, I think that is a big insult to Tyler Perry,because in my opinion, Tyler is not that bad and like I said before on this blog, for a man who seems to be the only black film maker doing films and employing black folks and still breaking box office numbers its about time black folks especially cut him some slack. If you are not doing anything to help the many black actors sitting on the side bench for years on end waiting for a job and Tyler is the only one doing something about it then please don't criticise the man., 
.
The question is, would you rather Hollywood pigeon hole Lupita and only cast her in movies where she plays a slave or a maid etc etc or (Being screwed butt naked by some man like Halle in Monsters Ball which earned her her oscar.)  . What would you wish to see Lupita in, in future. Give me an example of names of past movies where you would wish to see Lupita headline. Would you rather she stays and works on the continent of Africa ? 
.
I know she is new in the industry and in Hollywood, one has to earn her keep, but personally from here on, I wish to see Lupita headline in movies such as "Avatar", or a lead girl in a X-Men, Star Wars, A Bond Movie, or my dream would be to see her in a remake of the Michael Douglas & Kathleen Turner 1984 whimsical romantic old comedy movie Romancing The Stone/Jewel of The Nile -  (she is fun and goofy and a role of such will fit her perfectly and will definitely break box office numbers depending on which they pair her up with). I do not want her to be pigeon holed in any kind of role. She is so great and I have not doubt she is versatile and I want to see that Versatility on screen overtime. I love her so much I want all of her on Screen

You always post insightful and thought-provoking videos on enetrtainers in the Western world. God bless you. This one of Lupita is yet another. Keep it up Dear! Im reposting if you dont mind.

To be honest dear, I think they should replace someone like Zoe Saldana with her, in somethings Zoe acts. Zoe is just a semi-fine face, to me, she's a bit lack lustre and doesn't deserve all that star power. #Lupita All the way!
