I’ve updated the gallery with photos of Gugu attending the BFI London Film Festival Awards where she announced the winner of the best film award after serving as a juror during the festival’s 2016 cycle. Gugu was wearing a stunning Burberry dress.
I’ve updated the gallery with over 60 photos of Gugu attending the ‘Black Mirror’ Photocall during the 60th BFI London Film Festival. Gugu is wearing a stunning Wes Gordon dress.
I’ve updated the gallery with stills & screencaptures of Gugu’s episode in Easy, which is currently streaming on Netflix.
I’ve updated the gallery with over 100 photos of Gugu attending the Opening Night Gala of the 60th BFI London Film Festival yesterday. Gugu is wearing a pretty outfit of Brock Collection’s Resort 2017.
With less than a week to go before the curtains are raised for the BFI London Film Festival, organizers have named the jury members who will be poring over entries in the four competitions.
Athina Rachel Tsangari, whose Chevalier won the main award in 2016 and is Greece’s entry for next year’s Oscars foreign-language category, is president of the official competition, heading up a team that includes rising star Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle, Miss Sloane), director Anthony Chen (Ilo Ilo) and screenwriter Abi Morgan, whose Suffragette opened last year’s festival.
Also announced Thursday, the awards ceremony, to be held Oct. 15, will be hosted this year by Michael Sheen. Steve McQueen will receive the BFI Fellowship at the event. [Source]
The September 24 official opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, DC will also see the debut of the DuVernay-helmed August 28: A Day In The Life Of A People. Commissioned discreetly and directly by NMAAHC, the 22-minute film of six significant events in African-American history that occurred on that summer day will play exclusively in the museum daily for its first year, I’ve learned.
Starring Don Cheadle, Regina King, Angela Bassett, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Lupita Nyong’o, David Oyelowo, Michael Ealy, Andre Holland and Glynn Turman and shot last month on weekends, August 28 depicts the 1955 lynching of 14-year-old Emmett Till in Mississippi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech during the massive March on Washington. The DuVernay written, produced and directed film also will look at the 2005 date that Hurricane Katrina made its tragic landfall and the Denver night in 2008 when Barack Obama accepted the Democrats nomination as the first African-American to be a major American political party’s Presidential candidate.

With Gugu laying low until her next project, I made a huge update in the gallery by uploading some missing events and doing some quality check with replacing some old pictures with a bigger size.
