Black actresses are so underpaid.
I assume that Viola is at the top of pay for black actresses because of her accolades and the quantity and quality of roles she's being offered but she is still underpaid bc she alluded or said so a few years ago. 
Octavia Spencer talked about the pay issue for black actresses a few years ago as well.
For black actors the top 3 highest paid have to be Denzel, Will, and Sam Jackson. Viola should have been with the accolades she has at Sam Jackson's rate at least which is $15+ million a film up front.

I def remember her saying Tyler was the first person to pay her what she's worth

Love Taraji...but a lot the gorls left Mo out on the limb on her own when she was rallying against the machine because they didn't want to be ousted or they didn't like her "delivery"


So I watch her cry and I'm just like...

I love Taraji.  I hope she gets the salary she so desires real soon. I personally don't believe in throwing around large amounts of money. But if there was a time she should have gotten a pay raise it was during the Empire/Hidden Figures era. I would have champion for her to get 1 million an episode plus an Ep credit.

And I didn't realize she was talking about this film too. Thought she was just speaking about past experiences

Oprah gorl, you couldn't throw your weight around to make sure the gorls didn't have to beg and plead to get their coin? :uhh:

i figured the color purple was involved

it kinda makes sense. imagine just coming off the biggest project/movie of your career and still feeling undervalued

she should be elated and feeling on top of the world right now. not sitting somewhere in tears

Taraji's team really dropped the ball with not locking down good pay for Empire and building off of that show for a higher rate. I just looked and saw that Kerry Washington's team secured her a $1.1 million an epi for a Hulu series a few years ago she probably was a producer as well which may have factored in the fee she got.  So they must have used the success of Scandal to lock that in for her. Racism, ageism (40+), sexism, and in case of darker black actresses colorism impacts their pay, but a good team can help with getting a high rate met.

I hope Taraji can get her a team that takes her resume and figures out how to get her fee met for every production and assist with mapping out the right roles for her.  However, if she's seeking $20+ million on front end that's going to be hard for her bc she doesn't have the resume/box office/awards for it.

Right people have to factor in all of this. Everyone's team negotiate differently and for different things. There's all kinds of backend deals, etc. Taraji been in a few hits, she's a big name but doesn't have the commercial clout, she can't carry a film on her name alone.

 I believe you're speaking about "Little Fires everywhere ", which was incredible I think Kerry got an EP credit for that too.
