I think that Tyler Perry's story is really amazing. I don't think Hollywood (or anyone else) can continue to ignore him or marginalize him anymore. He has surpassed everyone in the one category that counts the most (and which shouldn't, of course).
Here's what an idiot I am. When I clicked on the link to this story, I expected it to be about Katy Perry, who has had a phenomenal year. Well, so has Tyler Perry.
Perry has endured every slight, every assault on his talent, and he has been largely ignored by critics and commentators alike. I can't imagine that this will continue. Sadly, it just might.
And Perry will go on making people laugh and cry and relate to the things he creates. That's what an artist does.
