I think some may have been passed over due to skin color, but not all. Just the some part is enough to complain.
For example, I'm sure the NFL isn't happy about Will Smith's movie, "Concussion." I'm sure they don't want it to get any more attention than possible as they gear up for the Super Bowl in a couple weeks... Lots of folks making lots of money off this game. Can't have reality mucking up the works.

I think Blacks are happy for Whites who win. Doesn't mean there isn't a separate issue of Blacks being mainly ignored in the awards.
But it begs the question, are they being passed over because they are Black, or because another film or actor was better?
It's all garbage. Hollyweird is turning out garbage.

I thought this was suppose to be about acting, not skin color and the perception of entitlement.
It is. That's the problem. But it shows the glaring absurdity of "diversity", namely, that skin color isn't a valid unit of measure when it comes to skill, performance or value.
