Sam Levinson is having quite a year. Even in the face of a pandemic, Levinson has managed to put out two special episodes of Euphoria that has been universally praised while Zendaya won an Emmy for her fantastic performance in the first season. The show has already gained cult-like status with fans glamouring for a second season. His latest project Malcolm & Marie comes to Netflix next Friday and has earned an avalanche of praise from critics and buzz is building due to Zendaya’s electrifying performance in the film. Could we see Zendaya earn an Oscar nomination? Time will tell!
