Selma, a civil rights biopic, was directed by Ava DuVernay and depicts Dr. Martin Luther King leading an activist movement in the hostile racial climate of Selma, Alabama, which helped spur the eventual passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. David Oyelowo gave a commanding performance as Dr. King.

The actor already has several nominations and awards for his role including a nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) from the Golden Globes.

Selma was however nominated in two categories for the Oscars: Best Picture and Music (Original Song).
