As far as the nominees, Black talent was few and far between on the list. BlacKkKlansman got nods for  Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role (John David Washington), Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role (Adam Driver). Black Panther got nods for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture. Lastly for film, Mahershala Ali got a nod for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for Green Book. 

On the TV front, the cast of Atlanta was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, as well as the cast of GLOW, which has considerable Black talent. Sterling K. Brown also got nominated for This is Us.
