Ray Cornelius

Ray Cornelius is one of Atlanta’s newest entertainment writers and media personalities. His arts and entertainment website, www.raycornelius.com spotlights the latest in “positive” African-American celebrity news and was established in 2012.  Since that time Cornelius has covered a myriad of red carpet premieres, award shows and Atlanta-based films including Tyler Perry’s Temptation, The BronzeLens Film Festival, The Trumpet Awards, and The Steve Harvey’s Neighborhood Awards just to name a few. He has also interviewed a who’s who list of today’s top singers, actors and reality stars. With nearly 20 years of media experience, Cornelius has also worked as an associate producer for the Emmy-winning public affairs program, ATL Insider  and with such award shows as The Soul Train Awards, The Trumpet Awards and BET Hip-Hop Awards.

The nominations for the 49th NAACP Image Awards were announced this week and all I can say is Monday, January 15 is going to be lit! Sooooo many of our favorite TV shows like “Queen Sugar,” “Insecure” and “Atlanta” were nominated this year along with many of our favorite movies like “Marshall,” “Girls Trip,” and “Get Out.”

 

Check out the November 18 edition of "UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry." My special guests included award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson Jr., who stopped by to chat about his new Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Documentary, "Tell Them We Are Rising." The project puts a spotlight on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and their relevance to American society and culture. The film will debut during Black History Month on February 19, 2018.
