It was clear from the beginning that Hollywood’s African-American community was largely under-represented in this year’s Golden Globes. “Selma” was the only Black film recognized in major categories, and Black actresses Quvenzhane Wallis, Uzo Aduba and Viola Davis went home empty-handed in their respective categories. Don Cheadle and the star of “Selma,” David Oyelowo, were also snubbed.
In “Selma,” directed by the very skilled Ava DuVernay, there is a touching, late-night scene when a deeply troubled Martin Luther King (David Oyelowo) leaves the warmth of his bed to call a sleeping woman.
The announcement for this year’s 87th Academy Awards nominations caused an almost immediate backlash from the African-American community over the lack of nominations for the civil rights film "Selma".
