Daniel Kaluuya
Daniel Kaluuya stars as "Chris" in "Get Out".

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have always has a questionable relationship with artists of color, spawning the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag in 2015 which carried over into the following year after all the actor and actresses nominated were white for two years running.

Last year, the power of films such as Hidden Figures, Fences and Best Picture winner Moonlight resulted in seven of the 20 acting nominees being people of color. This time around, four Black stars have been nominated within acting categories while also holding down Best Director and Best Animated Film.



From veterans to new comers, athletes to soul divas, check out the nominees bringing Black excellence to the forefront during this year’s ceremony.
