The Teen Choice Awards 2017 unveiled their list of nominees in the various categories, and although Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber lead the way, Zendaya appears on their heels, pushed by the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Nominees Announced for the Teen Choice Awards 2017
In all, Zendaya competes in five categories at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, so that, with some luck, she could be the big winner of the ceremony. This will be held on August 13 and will be broadcast on Fox.
At the Teen Choice Awards 2017, Zendaya competes for Choice Breakout Movie Star, Choice Summer Movie Actress, Choice Twit, Choice Style Icon and Choice Female Hottie. We do not doubt that more than one will end up in their hands.
Those who wish to support Zendaya, as well as any artist featured in the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, can vote for them up to ten times a day through July 19 at TeenChoice.com. Surely, we will take great surprises.
Those who have already seen ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ know what role Zendaya is playing. She is and is not, at the same time, Mary Jane Watson. Some applauded this new course in the franchise; Others not so much and for a simple and silly reason: racism.
There were unfortunate comments against Zendaya, as it is the first time that the role of Mary Jane Watson (or its equivalent) rests with an African-American actress. But fortunately, there were people who supported her, including Paris Jackson.
Referring to Zendaya and his rejection of himself in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Michael Jackson’s daughter commented that “unfortunately, some people have to work harder to gain recognition for their talent”
As a form of praise, he added that “Zendaya still ‘kills’ as usual.” According to , in November 2016, the actress of Spider-Man: Homecoming had already anticipated these reactions, because “some people are simply not ready” for this kind of changes.
At the end of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’, Zendaya’s character tells Peter Parker that, while her name is Michelle, her friends know her as M.J. We understand that she comes to be like Mary Jane Watson, but without being called exactly like that.
