The “Susan Lucci” of the Black Reel Awards, Tyler Perry received his NINTH nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his performance in Gone Girl. Will this be the year that Perry FINALLY breaks through???
Perry gave the best performance of his career as a Johnny Cochran-esque attorney in the critically-acclaimed drama. This is also the first nomination that Perry has received for a role outside of his series of film. Earlier this awards season, Perry’s name was being whispered as a possible Best Supporting Actor contender.
He has received eight previous Black Reel Awards nominations going home every year empty-handed; will his turn in Gone Girl be the role that gives him his first win? Insiders feel that this may be Perry’s best opportunity to finally break through!!!
