‘The Color of Color’ author is the first African-American author to earn $1.9 million in book awards
COLUMBIA, S.C. — “The Color Of Color,” the book about African-Americans that was first published in 1959, is getting an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Audio for its score, and it’s getting its first nomination in an Academy Awards category.
The nomination is the latest in a string of Oscar nods for African-based artists.
Last year, director Ava DuVernay won the Best Original Score award for “Birdman,” and director James Baldwin won the Oscar for best actor for “Moonlight.”
Alfred Hitchcock won the Oscars for his “Psycho,” the best picture winner.
But it’s not the only movie to receive an Oscar nod.
The film, “The Shawshank Redemption,” also received a nomination for best picture, for which it won for best sound editing and sound mixing.
