Why Aunjanue Ellis Is the Unsung Hero of ‘King Richard’

Leading up to the 2022 Academy Awards, it was a surprise to absolutely no one that Reinaldo Marcus Green’s King Richard was a buzzworthy title. Its leading man expected to walk away with a gleaming statue. The film was met with rave reviews, an appreciation for the world-famous sports dad reaching new heights after his story, produced by his daughters Venus and Serena Williams, hit the big screen. Indeed, Richard Williams (Will Smith) leaves audiences marveling at his tenacity, instincts, and perseverance, but not to be left in his shadow is the story of his wife, Oracene 'Brandy' Williams who is powerfully played by Aunjanue Ellis.
