DIVA DISH! Black Panther Cast Wins Big. Rent Live Isn’t Quite Live on FOX!By The DivaGals | January 28, 2019 | Dish!
Black Panther took home the top award, Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Motion Picture, at the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards. Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman took full advantage of the cast’s stage time to discuss the cultural significance of the film. “We knew that we had something special, that we could create a world that exemplified a world that we wanted to see,” he shared. Rami Malek and This Is Us also won for Leading Actor in a Movie and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble, TV Drama.
RENT on FOX Sunday night actually aired portions of its Saturday night dress rehearsal after one if its stars Brennin Hunt broke his foot during the penultimate performance. Our own EIC Delaina Dixon was there and says, “Even though it a was just a dress rehearsal, these stars were giving it their all, and I think it shows.” We loved that RENT still gave us a live ending on Sunday with the original Broadway cast. Speedy recovery, Brennin!
