There Were A Few Surprises And Record-Breakers In An Otherwise Pretty Predictable Emmy Awards Ceremony
I watched the 73rd Annual Primetime Emmys last night, and because I live on the east coast, I went to bed immediately after the final award was presented at too-late-for-me-o’clock. And it should be no surprise that I had the weirdest dream last night about a member of the royal family-turned-soccer coach that looked like Kate Winslet and sounded like John Oliver, who for some reason really wanted me to learn how to play chess with their best friend, Cedric the Entertainer. The Emmys last night kind of felt like déjà vu happening in real-time. Oh look, Ted Lasso won another award! The Crown is cleaning up! But there were some moments that felt right, like the formerly snubbed Michaela Coel taking home the award for Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, for the incredible I May Destroy You. But other than that, and a few fun surprises, there was a whole lot of Cheerful Soccer Coach and 1980’s-era British Queen Having Problems With Her Son’s Messy Marriage.
Letitia Wright Was Injured While Filming “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”
Black Panther star Letitia Wright has wisely kept herself out of the headlines by keeping her mouth shut and staying off social media ever since getting dragged to hell and back last December for posting some anti-vaxx quackery on Twitter. Unfortunately, fate stepped in and Letitia’s in the news again, though this time through no fault of her own. According to Deadline, Letitia had to be rushed to the hospital last night after being injured on the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Thankfully she only received minor injuries and has already been released from the hospital. But her accident let the small domesticated panther out of the bag because now we know that Letitia is in fact returning as Shuri despite previous speculation that the addition of Michaela Coel to the cast may destroy her (odds of coming back after the shit she stirred).
Michaela Coel Has Been Cast In “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” And Some Think She Might Replace Letitia Wright
Variety reports that Michaela Coel, the nearly universally beloved creator and star of the series I May Destroy You, has been cast in Wakanda Forever, the sequel to Marvel’s Black Panther. No word on who she will be playing but also who cares? Do you know how hard it is to be nearly universally beloved? In this economy?! In recent memory, only the dearly departed Chadwick Bozeman, T’Challa — the Black Panther himself, has been able to pull that off. Now, according to TMZ, Michaela’s addition to the cast has caused some speculation that she might be replacing formally nearly universally beloved Letitia Wright who played T’Challa’s sister Suri in BP.
