ICYMI The SAG Awards were nothing but DIVERSE!

As Oscars fail to nominate a single person of color, African-Americans dominated the SAG awards.  In a year the Oscars failed to nominate a single person of color in the major acting categories, the Screen Actors Guild had no trouble awarding people of color and diverse casts.   Idris Elba won two Screen Actors Guild Awards in Saturday’sceremony.  Queen Latifah won. Viola Davis won. So did Uzo Aduba and the diverse cast of her show, “Orange Is the New Black.” The only white individual winners in the first hour of the show, Jeffrey Tambor and Alicia Vikander, won for projects that explore transgender people, who have historically been even less represented in Hollywood than people of color.   SAG’s message was clear: There is no shortage of diverse actors deserving of praise.
