The Oscar nominations were announced earlier this week and “Hidden Figures,” “Moonlight” and “Fences” were all nominated in the Best Picture category. I believe this is the first time we’ve ever had three African-American films nominated at the same time in this category.
"The Golden Globe Awards" air tomorrow night at 8 p.m. on NBC and a record number of African-American actors have been nominated. “Insecure” star Issa Rae is up for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy” along with black-ish actress Tracee Ellis Ross. “Atlanta” actor Donald Glover and black-ish‘s Anthony Anderson are also in the running for “Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.”
