It was a joke, @sputnik, because the Academy clearly hates Leo. I’m very happy for him and it always makes me happy when people live out lifelong dreams. When I first saw Kinky Boots I felt compelled to watch everything he’d done. If it can’t be Chiwetel I want it to be Matthew. } He’s been acting for over 20 years, and so to finally see recognition for his work — I can’t even describe the feeling.” And you know what? I really, really, really want Chiwetel to win but I wouldn’t be too upset if Mc Conaughey took home the trophy. BTW, this isn’t his only film out at the moment. Superspreader spin class in Hamilton, ON [Jezebel], Sexual assailant talks reproductive rights. Picture perfect: Chiwetel and Sari looked stunning as they posed for a picture on the red carpet, Stunning confidence: The actor didn't look nervous, although he's up for one of the biggest awards of the night: Best Actor. It’s strange no one from 12 Years is really campaigning except Lupita.

His mother grew up with no running water.

As for Chiwetel’s reaction upon receiving his first Oscar nomination (but surely not his last), this what he said: “At no point during filming, in the sweltering heat of New Orleans, did any of us ever foresee the journey this film would take us all on. I am so surprised he didn’t win the Golden Globe and the Critics Choice. Lainey said it best: “The two favourites, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey, can kiss all the babies and shake all the hands they want to, but I hope in the end it’s Chiwetel.” Hence she has the best chances. And if you really want to have a cry, you should watch this video of Chiwetel’s journalist sister Zain Asher talk to her colleagues yesterday morning about her brother and what this Oscar nomination means.

The British-Nigerian is purely of Igbo ethnic group that can be found in Eastern-Nigeria. Especially when its married with a movie that is considered great ( in the mainstream) in all aspects of film making such as this. Its blowing my mind that Matt keeps winning. I would rather Lupita as a supporting character win, or Steve McQueen as a director, or the film win for either screenplay or best picture because those three elements for me, made really important points about racial violence and complicity and how this narrative from two centuries ago is still relevant today. I have a Royal tumblr blog but am rarely on it. He’s fantastic in 12YAS, but he’s not the standout. Here are some photos of Chiwetel Ejiofor at last night’s Critics Choice Awards in LA. ': Donald Trump agrees with supporters at Georgia rally who chant Joe Biden should be in jail - as he says Hunter shows they are a 'corrupt family', 'I don't want people to think Trump Tower is being built by black people': Former Trump executive claims in new book he 'made her fire a pregnant woman', 'joked to Jewish businessmen about ovens' and 'banned black people from his lobby', The View hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar claim President Trump is lying about his COVID-19 diagnosis as they question his recovery speed, Trump attacks Savannah Guthrie as 'crazy' after dueling town halls and lashes out at George Stephanopoulos for not asking Joe Biden about Hunter's laptop claiming rival is running 'a crime family', Trump U-turns and approves California's relief funds for record-breaking fires - as Joe Biden says the money should never have been withheld in the first place, Trump supporting Democratic Georgia state Rep.

It’s like looking right into the sun at midday, too much! You need some thick skin. If you give a shit or mediocre performance the movie suffers….. You had a lesser actor TYAS would not have been the movie it was but you could have got away with a lesser actor in Lupitas part. God, I’m getting teary-eyed just imagining what it would mean for Chiwetel to stand on the Oscar stage with a statuette in his hand. The View hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar think President Trump is lying about his COVID-19 diagnosis as... Trump attacks Savannah Guthrie as 'crazy' after dueling town halls and lashes out at George Stephanopoulos... Trump U-turns and approves California's relief funds for record-breaking wildfires - as Joe Biden says the... Democratic Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones crowd-surfs over MAGA supporters without a mask at packed Trump... No special treatment!

And he has delivered in every part he has played. Beautiful. If he does lose to Leo I’d understand, because Leo has also proved himself over the years. This isn’t the first nor will it be the last iconic role he has played.

worwor pass our mai guard mallam danjuma. Also dont get why people think its so amazing MM stopped accepting huge pay checks for crap romcoms and decided to do some acting. Sisters Olanna and Kainene return home to 1960s Nigeria, where they soon diverge on different paths. To me.

I felt that Lupita’s performance was more compelling. Heck yea! A-List actor Chiwetel Ejiofor came to his hometown Enugu recently to celebrate his sister’s igba nkwu – Igbo traditional wedding/wine-carrying ceremony. he’s gone from a lovable goof to a serious actor in the past couple of years. the “until freedom is opportune” line.

I could drown in his eyes. Though I thought for a second him being always a bridesmaid was a running joke I’d just made up.

Great performance.

Beautiful couple. THIS role has finally put him on the map in America, but he has been very, very good in many equally good films. I absolutely love Chiwetel.What a gorgeous human being.
I am like if they can award TYAS best movie, its very strange to not honor the person who is in the majority of the movie. And now he’s a hugely successful actor with an Oscar nom and his sister is a big CNN journalist and his other two siblings are probably successful. I think that’s more incentive for them to vote for McConaughey.. because the most important thing is how leo feels? That doesnt make sense It sounds like the character lupita plays appealed more to you. It’s a big one too – Best Actor for his work in 12 Years a Slave. As civil war breaks out, political events loom larger than their differences as they join the fight to establish an independent republic.

I love this man.

/* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */. As you know, Chiwetel received his first Oscar nomination yesterday morning. I mean think about it, how big a stretch was it to cast him in DBC when he is a native texan?

Considering they have had such tragedy losing their dad so young (Chiwetel almost died in the same car crash at age 11), it is great that they have so much love for each other. Should I get a tumblr? I’ll be so disappointed if he doesn’t.

We close comments on older posts to fight comment spam. If the SAG awards goes to Matthew or Leo, there will be tears in my home. Its like he stopped trying to be a movie star with the bad romcoms and crappy action flicks and decided he wants to be an actor. About to cry, love how the sister was so passionate about him. His sister Kandibe Ejiofor is … Talent and brains run in the Ejiofor family. Some people I know are worried the Igbo gene pool is increasingly being compromised. Zain wished her brother, who is up for Best Actor, lots of luck alongside an image of the pair of them as children.

He was mesmerising in 12YaS. Directed by Biyi Bandele.

I want to comment and make Chiwetel posts popular so that Kaiser goes Cumby and gives us a post every day, but all I can honestly do is…. i’m kind of baffled by that sentiment. amen! Lots of love and support.

There are two reasons why I am hoping that Lupita will win: one) it could have a positive effect on the rest of her career and two) because of the role itself and what it means. @Harry, let me respectfully disagree. Chiwetel deserves to win this, but I think Mathew will get it. He has such a beautiful face!! The telling awards show will be SAG. If Chiwetel can win it, his Oscar chances are strong. Zain has spoken of how that devastating heartache fuelled Chiwetel’s desire to be the best actor he could be –  and helped bring an intensity to his performance in 12 Years A Slave. Vote for Chiwetel!”.

There are some fantastic writing blogs…, LAK, Are you on tumblr? But i fear.. one of those two will win because they are actually campaigning hard ( like that lameass Leto who is campaigning harder than Anne Hathaway) . but there’s a part of me that wants to keep him like a precious secret, like a Caravagio under the bed. I don’t think Leo would mind losing to Chiwetel.

I’m torn. Agree with you. I don’t either, I don’t want the guy he portrays to feel like a winner. So while yes, I would like to see Chiwetel win it will break my heart more if she doesn’t.

Loved him in Dirty Pretty Things as the kind, soft spoken immigrant. i also got robbed of my thug watching her be so proud, kinda reminded me of my sis cause like when something happens to me No One is more happy and proud than my sissy!

According to E! He has to win this. i genuinely, seriously couldn’t understand the original point. It makes him seem that much more awesome to know he comes from a family with a sister like this. (And i know SO many people on a race against their siblings…), “I don’t think Leo would mind losing to Chiwetel. So, there you go, Academy voters. urgh, i’ve got my literal idiot hat on this afternoon. Not many people have the good luck to get cast in such a good movie and such a good part for their first movie.
