African American Film Critics Association Awards

Love the recognition of both Creed and Straight Outta Compton, two excellent films I am hoping can get some Oscar love, especially as some of the big contenders we were waiting on are not slam-dunks (aka Joy). Also happy for Spike Lee's Chi-Raq which is an explosive and incredibly important film.
