These days, an Academy Award is not the only prize that eludes black filmmakers. Getting a film made and distributed has become a rare occurrence as well. Of the 558 feature films that were released in 2009, eight were filmed by black directors and two of them were creations of stage and big screen powerhouse Tyler Perry, who has directed eight movies since 2006 alone, including Why Did I Get Married, Too, which brought in $60 million.
