Will Black cinema make history on Sunday’s telecast of the Academy Awards?   The groundbreaking film “12 Years A Slave” is up for nine Oscar nominations, including Best Director (Steve McQueen), Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong’o) and Best Actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor).

All signs point towards “12 Years A Slave” winning Best Picture, having already secured countless critic circle awards as well as Golden Globe and SAG award wins.  This would be the first time in Academy history that a film with a mostly black cast, written and directed by a filmmaker and screenwriter of African descent scores a Best Picture win.
