Most of us were first introduced to actress Danielle Brooks on Orange Is the New Black back in 2013.

She portrayed the dynamic character "Taystee" for all 7 seasons.

According to The New York Times, Danielle has been nominated for her work as a supporting actress in the 2023 remake of The Color Purple!

“I’m alive and I am an Oscar nominee today,” she said on a video call minutes after the nominations were announced. “I don’t think I’ll be able to go back to sleep...it’s like getting the M.V.P. at the Super Bowl. Crazy. It’s what I always just hoped and dreamed would happen, but for it to actually happen, I’m in shock! It’s like what it says in “The Color Purple”: “Look what God has done.”

Congratulations to her and watch to see if she takes home the gold on Sunday, March 10th on ABC!
