    She has prestige vehicles in the bag for more Best Actress nods. Hoping she still makes history this season for her second in the category.

    You posted this on the TV side. This is a feature film.

    I firmly believe she’s making history with her 2nd best actress nomination for Widows, and i’m sticking to it!

    @m, I posted on the tv side, due to the way it was worded. On one press release, they worded it as an Amazon streaming platform series of sorts. They didn’t really imply it was going to be a motion picture, so much as a TV mini series. Or, maybe that’s what I drew off the press release. LOL

    I don’t believe so. But, based off them having already announced the screenplay writer & the director, it will probably start filming early next year, after she wraps on HTGAWM for season 5.

    With these roles keep lining up like this for the Queen, HTGAWM probably won’t, unfortunately, have much longer in this world.

    But, on a positive note, this is an amazing vehicle for her! Interesting that this one seems to be going into development faster than Ms. Jordan’s biopic. In any case, i’ll take it. Ms. Chisholm, much like Viola was an eloquent orator. But, she had a VERY distinct accent and lisp. Come through, Viola! YOU GOT THIS!!

    Sadly, I think you’re right. But as much as I am in love with Annalise Keating, and HTGAWM, I am man enough to break up with it, to see her get quality roles like this in cinema.

    You’re very correct, also..Shirley had a very distinct speech pattern. But, i’m confident in Queen Vee that she will handle Shirley Chisholm, with care, dignity love and the most proper justice!

    You could say the same to literally any of your white old lady faves.

    Angry black woman?! All you think of Shirley Chisholm is she was an angry black woman?! These are the types of comments that typically don’t dignify a response. But Thatcher, you should kill yourself, and the call the police right beforehand to incriminate yourself.

    Anyway, back to Viola. @someonelikeme, you’re right, Shirley had a very unique speech pattern and demeanor. Can’t wait to see the Queen bring it to life!
