Tyler Perry racked in $21.5 million this weekend with his movie "Why Did I Get Married". Tyler Perry has had a pretty successful run so far in the movie business. But why don't you hear terms like 'oscar buzz' associated with him? And where is his NAACP awards? I could be wrong on the NAACP thing, but really Tyler with the help of the black community, especially sisters is kicking some serious butt!
Yup the buzz is it's a good movie and as for the Oscar thingy Blacks only win the Academy Award for playing thugs, hoodlums, ne'er-do-wells, hookers and whores. Denzel has an impressive resume of distinguished roles but yet and still he won the award for playing a murderous crooked cop.
P.S. I'm looking forward to seeing Jill Scott in this movie and the upcoming "#1 Women Detective Agency" where she'll play the role of a female South African (I think)detective. Jill is my cutie----I like a sistah with a little heftiness on dem bones. To this day I don't know what the NAACP's criteria is for giving awards for family-oriented and/or Black relationship movies!
