“Selma” may be a history making film, but Director Ava DuVernay could make history herself! With the Golden Globe awards around the corner, the director and former Hollywood publicist made history as the first African-American woman to be nominated for Best Director in the 72 years of the Globes.
If she wins, she would be the first black man or woman to win a Best Movie Director Golden Globe. When told of the honor DuVernay said, “I don’t believe I’m the first one who has made something worthy. That is where the bittersweet moment comes in. It is sweet for me in this moment and my mother is very happy, but certainly I know I stand on the shoulders of a lot of amazing women.”
Selma is set for release this Friday and is nominated for the most coveted Golden Globe award, Best Motion Picture-Best Drama, it’s also been nominated for Best Actor and it could earn a Best Picture Oscar nod.
