Ava DuVernay is a woman full of grace.
After Selma got majorly snubbed at the Oscar nomination ceremony yesterday, earning a nod for Common and John Legend’s song “Glory,” but nothing else, the internet was outraged. The film’s director, however, handled it like a true pro.
On her Instagram account, Ava shared a poster of the wildly revered film with the quote, “A truly great American film,” from a Rolling Stone review. The pic was sentimentally captioned:
Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for Best Actor at the Oscar ceremony set to air on February 22, is also responding to his accolade. The actor, who plays Chris Kyle in American Sniper–which is also nominated for Best Picture–issued a statement showing his gratitude and paying homage to U.S. troops.
“This is a tribute to Chris Kyle, his family and all of the service men and women who sacrifice their lives for their countries and their families. It is a privilege and an honor to play Chris and I share this with Sienna, Clint, Jason Hall, the rest of seal team three and everyone involved with the film.”
Kevin, who plays Darnell Lewis, is on a mission to prepare Will’s character James King for maximum security prison–the only problem is, Darnell has never actually been in jail. There are guns, gangs, an awkward detour to ’80s fashion and of course, ditzy moments that make up a comedy we love.
Die Hard comes out March 27. Watch the trailer above.
