A day after Liniker’s outburst about not being invited to the Brazilian Cinema Grand Prix ceremony, producer O2 apologized to the singer. She is the protagonist of “Manhãs de Setembro”, which won the award for Best Fiction Series, but did not go on stage to receive the trophy. In a note released on Friday (25), the producer’s advisory did not explain why the invitation was not sent to the actress, but regretted the “disruptions caused by the situation”.
On Thursday (24), Liniker shared a post celebrating the recognition for the production award, which is already in its second season on the Prime Video streaming platform. However, she revealed that she had not been invited to the event held at Cidades das Artes, in Rio de Janeiro, the night before. In her outburst, she declared: “I was not invited to celebrate alongside the team and the cast the award we won, to share the victory night with other artists and collaborators of the Brazilian and world audiovisual”.
She continued: “We were forgotten once again, when it was time to pop the champagne when we reached the expected ‘final cut’ of a production. Brazilian cinema once again failed to recognize the other people who contribute to the creation of a project of scope. global, which really changed the national audiovisual narrative in the last decade. This is not just about my work, but the determination and unique talent of each individual who dedicated themselves to the creation of the series”, expressed Liniker.
Liniker also pointed out that, in a country with high rates of violence against minorities, series like Manhãs de Setembro are essential for diversity to be recognized and increasingly present in the audiovisual industry. “A professional, actress, artist, who studied to be able to exercise this trade, and a black transvestite, can tell the story of another transvestite, alongside other transvestites and transgender people, other black people and allies, who believe in each comma of this story and and transformed the great September Manhãs into the success that it is”, he commented.
