The HPFA was smart. They made up for the accusations of racism by choosing Best Actors in Drama both Black actors, the late Chadwick Boseman, and Andra Day, and “Nomadland” Best Picture. That should make up a little bit for their sketchy past. They also gave Best Supporting Actor to Daniel Kaluuya for “Judas and the Black Messiah.” Bravo to all!
