  • Muttley70

    Regina King also should have been nominated Best Supporting Actress, Drama Series, for her portrayal as Erika Murphy in the Leftovers.I admit I did not watch American Crime, but it would be hard to top her performance in episodes 6 “Lens” and 10 “I Live Here Know”. Though she was outstanding all throughout season two.

  • Syafaat Norzaiwin

    no Bokeem Woodbine? He is one of the best character in Fargo.

  • james whatney

    There are soo few movies with black actors that all of them gets nominated..its not shock
