  1. I don’t understand how Ruby Dee could get nominated, yet they said that American Gangster did not qualify for the Awards selection.
    Does anyone have an explanation for this ?

  2. Didn’t watch it. Apparently, many others didn’t either.

    Not true, the song “Raise It Up” from August Rush had Black composers.
