Trailer Park: “For Colored Girls”
September 15, 2010 § Leave a comment
This might just be the biggest wild card in this year’s Oscar race. It could really go either way. Tyler Perry doesn’t scream Oscar, but it’s hard to argue against this cast of criminally-underrated African-American actresses and the source material (which scored big at the Tonys). Not sure what elements would even gain awards traction… Adapted Screenplay possibly? As for the acting categories, the supporting actress category is still so wide-open that any one of these ladies could score a nomination. But with such a large and talented cast it’ll be hard for a single performance to stand out. If that were to happen, though, I’d put my money on either Loretta Devine or Phylicia Rashad. Both have the industry respect and experience to warrant Oscar noms.
