Why Ava Duvernay’s Oscar Snub Matters
It’s so important to remember that even as we raise the alarm about Hollywood’s continuous fuckery, even as we persist in pointing out the inequality and racism embedded in how we recognize artistry in American society, we NEVER lose sight of this fact:
Selma was made. Selma is important. Selma, and its incredible cast, and incredible director, deserves to be celebrated and validated by the public, even if it’s not being celebrated and validated by Hollywood.
Watch the movie. Spread the word. Selma should get seen, Oscar or no Oscar.
