No Lie: Don Cheadle, The Lone PoC Golden Globe Winner

The only person of color to score a win at last night’s Golden Globe Awards was probably also the biggest upset: Don Cheadle won Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his starring turn in House Of Lies, over nominees from the likes of 30 Rock, The Big Bang Theory, and critical darling Louis C.K., among others.

He also handled the awkward task of following Quentin Tarantino in addressing the press corps backstage, in which Tarantino dropped an n-bomb to defend it appearing so much in Django Unchained, which netted him the Best Screenplay (Motion Picture) award.

Congrats to Cheadle, of course, but still…the only winner of color? Hollywood stays losing.
