The 32-year-old nominee stunned in a black-and-white hand-beaded, off-the-shoulder gown by Thom Browne that she revealed took 800 hours to make. But most striking of all was her jewelry.
Cynthia's striking gown paled in comparison to the incredible $3 million Bulgary necklace she wore, made of one pear cabochon sapphire, one round diamond, 136 buff top sapphires, two marquise diamonds, 33 round diamonds, and pavé-set diamonds. Now that is serious bling.
Cynthia has been, up until 2018, almost exclusively dedicated to the stage where she garnered a plethora of awards for her portrayal of Celie in the Broadway revival of The Color Purple.
She won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical, the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program.
We can't wait to see how she does at the Oscars...
Kasi Lemmon's biopic about the legendary Harriet Tubman provided British actress Cynthia Erico with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase her considerable talent in the role of Araminta “Minty” Ross, the escaped slave turned abolitionist.
As a free woman, Ross takes the name, Harriet Tubman, and journeys back into the hell of slavery to free her family.
Erico's depiction of the tormented Harriet, and her ferocious determination to fight against the evil of slavery that marred her life is riveting and has garnered her universal approval from critics and audiences alike - and several prestigious nominations - including for the Golden Globes.
