The Emma Awards honour multicultural media personalities from the world of film, TV, music and journalism. 

Tom Cruise won best actor for his part in The Last Samurai and more confusingly David Beckham was voted sports personality of the year along with Thierry Henry but ahead of Zimbabwe cricketer Henry Olonga: 
Olonga and team-mate Andy Flower overshadowed Zimbabwe's opening World Cup match last year by issuing a statement condemning President Robert Mugabe's government and wearing black armbands to mark what they described as 'the death of democracy'. 
Olonga has not played in Zimbabwe since and has fled to Britain as an immigrant.

Well, i haven't seen Tom Cruise in any "multicultural media", but who knows. If his career reflects this, then why not.
Same for Beckham.

Beckham isnt exactly big over here in north america

Neither of them reflect any type of multi-culturalism in my opinion. Especially Beckham. I'm surprised he can spell his own name.

And why exactly would they be considered "multicultural?"

tom cruise is alright but i hate david beckham with a passion
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 10/19/04 - 12:38:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Tom Cruise might be, but I've never even heard of Beckham.

I can feel Asia shuddering after that last one

If you mean they appeal to audiences all over the world then I guess they are.

I agree with newtownnninja. I doubt it's a question of their own ethnicity. It is probably based on popularity within many cultures.

If by 'multicultural media personalities' you mean 'sellouts',then yes,yes they do
