    Is Innovative really that bad? They don’t handle any A list talent?

  2. bsbarnes says:

    Lupita Nyong’o continues to make impressive decisions which should ensure a continually distinguished career: Miu Miu, Lancome and now CAA; as long as she doesn’t marry Jared Leto, the sky’s the limit for Lupita! :D

  3. Daniel says:

    Innovative are/were useless for her. An Oscar, and all she had besides that award-giving film was a horrendous bit-part, ‘extra’ in ‘Non-Stop’?
    Are they seriously still calling themselves ‘Talent Agents’?

  4. John Andrews says:

    Great move for Lupita! In order to move up sometimes one has got to step up. CAA is a great entity. They have an eye for extraordinary talent.

  5. Well played. You know who this woman is with? Jessica Chastain to Cate Blanchette! NICE. These are the people she models herself on. People need to get on the ball with who she is. She’s no slap dap Halle Berry!

    Reblogged this on Cinema A Go-Go and commented:
    Sweet! A lot of stars who sign with CAA are in Marvel films. Chris Pine signed with them and he’s got Star Trek and Jack Ryan.

  7. TRUTH-TELLER says:

    she left because she has an Oscar and no to few gigs lined up yet. She’s right to do so…

  8. PETER says:

    Why did she leave Innovative, and how do they feel about her leaving them?
