Imagine you are a college student and a rookie actress. You go for a role in an independent film. You get that role and you are then nominated for an Academy Award. Wow, right. Well all of this has happened to actress Gabourey Sidibe. Unfortunately Gabby didn't win the Oscar for Best Actress for her role in Precious.
But then you might wonder, what next? Considering Gabourey's obese figure what kind of roles can she expect to be offered?
Let's face it there is already a shortage of good roles for Black actresses. And leading roles are even harder to come by. And good leading roles even harder. So where does that leave Gabourey? Will we even ever see her again in anything like a leading role? Or will she be a one hit wonder and disappear from film work all together?
Though it's impossible to say what if anything will come next for Gabourey I really can't imagine that we'll be hearing a lot from her in the future. Can you?
