Black Stars Shine at the SAG Awards

Well i guess now Black Folks should be satisfied, you now have Awards you can take home.

But the question is, will you show up at the Oscars with your White counterparts…you know its not there fault you don’t get nominated.

Several black performers received SAG awards for TV performances: Queen Latifah for her role as blues singer Bessie Smith in Bessie, Viola Davis for How to Get Away With Murder, Uzo Aduba for Orange Is the New Black and Idris Elba for his role in Luther.

Elba took center stage when he also won the supporting actor prize for his role in the film, Beasts of No Nation, which the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences overlooked for an Oscar nomination.

“Welcome to diverse TV,” he said, sending a clear message to academy members who nominated only white actors for Oscars for a second consecutive year.

The Oscar snub of actors of color unleashed a barrage of criticism for the lack of diversity among its voting members.
