And actress Lupita Nyong'o is standing front and center...5, 4, 3...2..1 and I can almost hear the excessive whining that will come forth just because of this perceived snub by those who see only the negative in everything. I already had one individual whining on my Tumblr page about her ending up in the fold of the magazine. Just stop it! Remember, Chiwetal Ejiofor is the main star of this movie, even though Lupita was just as brilliant as his co-star.
Can we just celebrate Lupita's accomplishments and her beauty without thinking the worse every-damn-time? As soon as it was posted folks didn't waste any time cropping out the rest of the folks in the picture and highlighting Lupita along with actress Naomie Harris as seen below:
I'm also waiting for Essence Magazines annual Hollywood issue that will also be released on 07/Feb/2014 as the Vanity Fair issue. I hope we digital subscribers get ours before they hit the bookshelves. I don't know if Lupita is on the cover in a fold-out one, because I only saw Oprah, Chiwetal Ejiofor, Forest Whitaker and Michael B. Jordan on the cover. I do know she is going to be featured in a badazz editorial on the inside of the March issue of Essence magazine.
