  2. I'm drawing a blank but I feel like some of the past nominees could become the inspiration for the new name of the award...

  4. How about New Black. Ever since Pharrell went on Oprah and started talking about "New Black" Tumblr & Twitter went on a meme. He/She that New Black.

    Pharrell's "New Black" definition- The “new black” doesn’t blame other races for our issues. The “new black” dreams and realizes that it’s not a pigmentation; it’s a mentality. And it’s either going to work for you, or it’s going to work against you. And you’ve got to pick the side you’re gonna be on.
