It seems like Zendaya’s success with Euphoria is resulting in a tidal wave. Her career seems to be the moment?January 9, 2021 at 5:40 pm #1203973124
Didn’t Noah Centineo go from like 150K IG followers to 12m the week after To All the Boys dropped on Netflix.
Awkwafina kinda, she was already an internet thing before 2018 but the 1-2 punch of commercial breakthrough of Crazy Rich Asians & Ocean’s 8 followed by critically hit of The Farewell in 2019 is kinda insane.January 9, 2021 at 6:25 pm #1203973187
The way she went from journeyman actor and semi-known club touring comedian to one of the few automatic studio movie greenlights, Emmy winner, Grammy nominee, best selling author and almost Oscar nominee within 18 months all from one film (Girls Trip) is unreal.
When was the last time something like that happened before? (and especially for a Black woman in her late 30s, in an industry dripping in ageism and misogynoir).January 9, 2021 at 6:33 pm #1203973199

And now she has Raya and the Last Dragon, The Little Mermaid live action and Marvel’s Shang-Chi all coming up this year. She is getting those Disney cheques.January 9, 2021 at 6:36 pm #1203973201
What about actors that went from unknown status to Oscar Nominees? Like Lupita? I love it when that happens ? Like ‘A Star is Born‘ kind of thing….? Also not recent years but Vivien Leigh pulled that off etc……January 9, 2021 at 6:44 pm #1203973232
Jennifer Hudson? But she was literally the biggest talking point on the #1 show in America.January 9, 2021 at 6:47 pm #1203973237
But Jennifer Hudson was already famous as a singer before winning an Oscar ?January 9, 2021 at 9:58 pm #1203973445
Florence Pugh in Midsommar
Timothee Chalamet in Call Me By Your NameJanuary 9, 2021 at 10:05 pm #1203973454
Brie Larson in Room? She was pretty unknown before that, she briefly had a music career and a supporting part in Sleepover (I didn’t even know it was her at first). Then she won an Oscar for Room and now she’s Captain Marvel.
