The New York Times: and the 2019 oscar nominations should be... our critics share their lists of oscar worthy films and performancesWhen The New York Times movie critics published their list of who should be nominated for 2019 Oscars, a familiar name appeared: Shayna McHayle, Fashion Merchandising Management. Critic Manohla Dargis nominated McHayle as Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the movie Support the Girlsin which she plays a scrappy employee of a Hooters-style restaurant. McHayle, who studied at the college from 2009-14, also happens to be a critically lauded rap artist who performs under the name Junglepussy. (Her song “Bling Bling” featured memorably in an episode of HBO’s Insecure.) On January 22, the Academy will post its official nominations. Fingers crossed!
