    Really. You wonder why? Maybe because there are so many black only awards? Seems racist to have a black only award but there are many. Amazing?

    Is this a joke? Go play somewhere else.

  • Alan | January 20, 2013 2:02 PMReply

    Interesting. Perhaps there will be more diversity next year?

  • Sean O'Rouke | January 15, 2013 3:31 PMReply

    And thats why we still need awards like Soul Train, NAACP and Black Reel awards.

    Proud of my Homeland Show, best show on tv. Give credit where credit is due. Just awesome writing and acting. Congrats to them.

  • Gwen | January 14, 2013 3:29 PMReply

    The true issue is that there weren't enough professional opportunities afforded people-of-color to qualify for awards in the first place. And I mean all people; not just black people.

    Damnnnnn....BOOM...there goes the dynamite. Tambay your so ho-hum. Life is like a box of chocolate. Remember that crummy movie that won all those oscars? WE have lots of work to do. Let's see who I saw last night, Jamie, Denzel, Chris Tucker, Kerry, hmmmmm....oh and I saw p-diddy combs not sure what he was doing there.

    well tambay, i have not come to scold you -- just to let you know that you are not wrong for noticing the absence of color at the globes. ho hum is right. meanwhile, back at the ranch: i'm about ready for the black oscars. is there an event other than the naacp image awards that rewards black excellence on stage and screen? seriously, inquiring minds would like to know. i was rooting for quvhanzane. (did i get that name right?)

  • saadiyah | January 14, 2013 2:55 PMReply

    That's why most television shows, movies, and of course of awards shows (including last night's Golden Globes) don't have me as a viewer. If they can't be bothered to include POC's in meaningful numbers/ways, I can't be bothered to watch. They don't care, but it sure makes me feel better.

  • Jake | January 14, 2013 2:48 PMReply

    Oh shut up. Stop trying to be so politically correct and speaking as if The Golden Globes are racist or sexist. Everyone last night deserved their awards (minus Christoph Waltz) and most of them happen to be caucasian. Should we take the awards away from them and give them to all the minorities, simply because they're not white? Now who's the racist? Since they're so poor and helpless and so repressed from awards shows? I guess we should just snatch away Daniel Day Lewis' award and give it to Denzel Washington because he's black, so what if his performance came nowhere near DDL? Please, you're making yourself look like a fool.

    You're displaying a severe lack of ignorance and knowledge, and embarrassing only yourself. Better you stop typing and get a clue first.

    Gwen summed up the main problem with the award shows. No decent opportunities for people of color. We all know that. But with Jake's comment, I have no problem with pointing out the Hollywoods problem. We try to at least give awards to our own with the NAACP awards, but I think its a joke considering anybody that is black gets nominated regardless. I don't see anything wrong with calling out these award shows because I know that liberal racism is at work. I will always be grateful for people that choose not to go the typical route and just do things their own way (Dennis Dortch, Issa Rae, etc). So I don't care to complain that these award shows are not nominating people of color because I get what you mean by "crying wolf syndrome." I also don't think that someone should just get an award or be nominated because of their color. That's not going to help.

  • Really? | January 14, 2013 4:04 PM

    Slow down BEAUTYIAM. Jake's comment may have been confrontational, but until you, or anyone else, presents a better argument (except crying, blaming and pointing fingers) to support your claim, Jake's opposition is valid. Seriously, everyone knows the website's mission, but you have to bring some to get some. In other words, who (what person of color) should have won a Golden Globe? Exactly! Look at the most talked about black movies, sitcoms, tv dramas, actors, etc, from last year and then bring those forward who you believe were cheated. Until you do that, I'm telling you, this crying wolf syndrome does nothing for the cause, but tends paint the "crying person" as someone not to be taken seriously.

  • BeautyIAM | January 14, 2013 3:44 PM

    Oh no Jake, you shut up. Don't come onto a website that was created to show case films from the African diaspora and chastise the content when it speaks the truth. I don't think that the people that won their awards should have their awards taken away from them. However, Hollywood and these award shows start to look pathetic when it blatantly ignores its lack of diversity. But they want to give awards to their tokens and call it "diversity." America is becoming more diverse everyday, but you wouldn't think that when we watch many of our current movies and television shows.

  • No | January 14, 2013 2:01 PMReply

    I love Don Cheadle; he's one of my favorite actors and I respect his talent, but I really didn't care for House of Lies. I just thought it was another piece of cynical glorification of the kind of predatory practices in contemporary America.

  • matt | January 14, 2013 1:59 PMReply

    yeah, those dang Golden Globes always bringing the non-white people down...

  • Erik W | January 14, 2013 1:50 PMReply

    He was a raisin in a glass of milk.

    He sank to the bottom?
