As we saw from yesterday's Golden Globe nominations , this year's awards season is not going to be the rainbow it was last year -- or even the year before. The 2010 Oscars made history when for the first time, a female was awarded best director (Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker ), and an African-American writer won best adapted screenplay (Geoffrey Fletcher, Precious ). Nonetheless, everything will be back to Hollywood "normal" for 2011.

Thankfully, there are groups like the African-American Film Critics Association, which was founded in 2003 by Gil Robertson IV and Shawn Edwards . This year's winners include Halle Berry for best actress , best actor Mark Wahlberg for The Fighter , and best screenplay for Night Catches Us by Tanya Hamilton . Here is the complete list.
