‘Glory’ Wins Best Original Song At The 2015 Oscars

“Glory” from “Selma” won Best Original Song at the 2015 Oscars on Sunday night, beating out “Everything is Awesome” from “The Lego Movie,” “Grateful” from “Beyond The Lights,” “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from “Glen Campbell… I’ll Be Me” and “Lost Stars” from “Begin Again.”

Watch Common’s inspiring speech here. 

Selma is now. Because the struggle for justice is right now…we know that right now the struggle for freedom and justice is real…there are more black men under incarceration today then there were slaves in 1850.
—  John Legend’s using his acceptance speech for “Glory” to drop some harsh truth
