Lyvie Scott

Lyvie Scott is an entertainment writer based in Atlanta, GA. Her passions include minority studies and aesthetically-pleasing celebrities — and she usually finds a way to shoehorn both into her work.

Lyvie has previously written for Comic Book Resources and Nerdy POC, and currently divvies her time between publications like SlashFilm, Blossom Magazine, and Screen Speck. She spends the majority of her time looking for ways to spotlight women of color in traditionally-gatekept genres, those she grew up loving — and critiquing the disparities that marginalized filmmakers face. Her favorite movie (currently, at least) is Wong Kar-wai's The Grandmaster.
