Daniels is nominated for Precious, "a social advocacy film at its finest, shedding light on a young mother stifled under a social and educational system that left her behind." Dainels is nominated for "Best Director." Winning tonight could change alot for gay african american screenwriters, directors and actors.

Good luck, Lee!  We're rooting for you!  But, remember, you've made history already!
