What the headline says! If Colman Domingo wins Best Actor for his role in Rustin, he’ll become the first-ever winner of Afro-Latino descent. He’ll also mark the second Best Actor win for an actor from The Walking Dead franchise, along with Steven Yeun in 2021. But I don’t think anyone is keeping track of that particular record except me.
