Countdown to Oscar

With the countdown to Oscar officially here... Thought I would share this article from Variety... Eye on the Oscars: Nominees Luncheon Studio via @Variety

My favorite quote from this event was...Lupita Nyong'o, "12 Years a Slave" supporting actress I learned from Solomon Northup's book that red was a color the slaves looked forward to wearing during Christmastime. When I got on set, Patty Norris had created this little bracelet that had red in it and it rang so true to Patsey's character.”

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers...

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spinning enthusiasts, graduate of  the "mecca" - Howard University's School of Communications, former publicist, actress, branding influencer and "doggie mom" to an adorably smart-energetic maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me -- Carla Renata.

Formerly of, where I Co-Hosted "On Air With Tony Sweet", this Fall, I will be hosting a new show for Black Hollywood Live owned by E! Correspondent Maria Menounos  and am a freelance contributor for NPR's Weekend All Things Considered.

I absolutely adore talking about all things cinema and it is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, know that I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share!  Enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
