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?


Interesting. Perhaps there will be more diversity next year?

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.


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.

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?)


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.


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.


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.


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