In addition, both Wayans and Oduye also were nominated for Outstanding Breakthrough Performance category.

Also vying for this year’s top prize for Outstanding Television or Mini-Series will be the successful stage plays turned films Thurgood and The Sunset Limited, the powerful tale of a determined mother, Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story and the brilliant BBC series, Luther.

    In the three Independent categories, nominees were assembled primarily of winners from the four major African-American film festivals, The Pan African Film Festival, Hollywood Black Film Festival, American Black Film Festival and the Urbanworld Film Festival and will contend for Outstanding Independent honors.

Blige (The Help), Cee-Lo Green (Footloose), Ludacris (Fast Five), four-time Black Reel Awards winner Jamie Foxx (Rio) will square off against past Black Reel Award Outstanding Actress nominee,Nicole Beharie (My Last Day Without You).

    So now all that’s left is BAFTA, NAACP Image Awards, and the Oscars.  Don’t have a good feeling about BAFTA but they should sweep the Images.  And than we hold our breath to see if it was enough for Oscar!
