One of the heartening facets of this week's Academy Awards on ABC (Mon., March 30, 9 P.M. ET) is the nomination of John Singleton as best director for Boyz N the Hood. But while black filmmakers are making inroads in Hollywood, that progress is mostly restricted to feature films. The production of TV movies remains disproportionally white both in front of and behind the camera. A film like this week's Final Shot (see review), with a predominantly black cast, is still very much a rarity.
