The Oscar Nominations For 2015: Selma Snubbed, ‘Birdman’ and ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ lead with nine


The nominations are in and The most obvious snub was “Selma,” Ava DuVernay’s moving biopic about Martin Luther King Jr. Despite a nod for best picture and best original song (for Common and John Legend’s recent Golden Globe-winning “Glory”), the film’s director and actors were shut out in their respective categories.

David Oyelowo missed out on a best actor nomination, but more surprisingly, Avu DuVernay was not acknowledged in the best director category, a nomination that would have been the first for an African American woman. The shade….
