All hail Queen Mary!
The R&B Queen has earned HUGE points in Hollywood this year for her Netflix role as Florence Jackson in Mudbound.
Mary went from the Golden Globes to the SAG Awards, now Mary can add the Academy Awards to that list! Mary has received her FIRST Oscar nomination as an actress and “can’t stop crying.”
According to USA Today, Mary told the story about a very lucky early morning phone call.
“My phone rang at about 5:30 a.m. and it was my publicist, Amanda, and she was screaming. And I don’t know what it is so I’m screaming and I’m crying! It’s just a really emotional time. We’re not taking this lightly because things like this don’t happen. And it did.”
Congrats Mary! We’re rooting for you.
