So there was only one person who was able to hold it down for the people of color last night at the Golden Globes, and we couldn’t pick a better choice than Don Cheadle. The actor won for best actor in a comedy for his role in the TV show House of Lies.

There weren’t that many black nominees, so it’s no surprise that there was only one winner. Denzel Washington was nominated for best actor in a drama for his movie Flight.

Cheadle’s win was much deserved. If you’ve never seen House of Lies, now might be the time to hurry and catch up since the second season premiered last night. He plays Marty Kaan, a management consultant, who gets the job done by any means necessary.

Maybe next year we will see a difference in the nominees, considering almost everyone loves Kerry Washington in Scandal.

Top winners at the awards ceremony included the Ben Affleck-directed Argo and Les Miserables.
