    An inclusive award show like the Oscars where anyone could win or get nominated solely based on what they put into their work gets bashed for being racist. Yet a race based show like this where nominees are actually based on race gets a pass. sheesh. No wonder you Americans are in such a horrible state.

    Just because you act doesn’t mean you automatically get an award or a nomination. You actually have to give a worthy performance. The world today is so use to all those participation ribbons that they think showing up is award worthy.

    • Abram

      You realize that Sandra Bullock has won an Image Award, right? Since 2011 Rosario Dawson, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Lopez, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ziyi Zhang, Penelope Cruz, and Suraj Sharma have all been nominated. In the same time, the Oscars (which as you said should be more inclusive) has only nominated 7 non-white actors/actresses in all acting categories.

      • Joe Eoj

        Let’s face it, none of those actors you mentioned won their award or were nominated for their acting prowess, they got a nod for being black friendly. JT? J-Lo? A-list fame to be sure but not exactly anything close to ‘A’ level acting.

        As for only 7 non-whites being nominated perhaps their is a reason for that that doesn’t involve the Academy being a bunch of racists. Maybe just maybe they don’t get the opportunities to shine by playing rolls other than “street thug”, “slave”, “cool urban friend” or “sports star”. And when they do get the chance and end up giving a JT level performance well sorry but you can’t expect to be thrown a bone come Award season.

        How often does someone black get a chance at hitting it out of the park playing a character like Hannibal Lecter and when they do how many actually step up and wow the world with their performance. When I think back on the history of film pretty much all of the stand outs happen to be white.

        I’ve seen a lot of good performances by people that happen to be black, I’ve also seen some great ones like for instance Andre Braugher on this very list. He’s also made my Emmy’s list the list now two year in a row based on his performance as Capt. Raymond Holt[simply one of the best characters/performances on television right now].

        The kid ‘Abraham Attah’ from Beasts of No Nation made my list, as did the film Dope. But give me a break if you’re gonna cry about Will Smith being over looked. He didn’t deserve a nod and neither did anyone from Straight Outta Compton two movies which I enjoyed but I’m not gonna act like they were best in show.
