I think it is important for black award shows like this to be in a category of their own peers. I understand that being in a category with other peers of difference genres of music and different movie categories, that it is more important to win because you beat out a wider range of nominees, but “competing” against your own peers and being positively recognized for it is definitely a plus. I think that us as an audience and others as a creative should be more thankful and appreciative of these kind of awards.

It was really nice seeing some of my favorite shows nominated and even winning well-deserved awards. Hopefully “the Academy” will pick up on their great talent and ALL of these winners will be nominated for the Oscars.
