Oscars 2015: The Reasons for the Black Shutout Are More Complicated Than You Think

19 January 2015 4:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, with last Thursday's announcement of the Oscar nominations, the sometimes ratings-challenged Academy Awards got all the traditional media and online attention they could have wished for. Too bad almost all of the attention was negative.

Usually, Oscar controversies are about taste -- whether "Crash" was really better than "Brokeback Mountain," or whether "Shakespeare in Love" was really better than "Saving Private Ryan." This year's controversy over "Selma," however, is shining an unflattering light on Hollywood's racial politics.

The snubbing of "Selma" in every category except Best Song and, curiously, Best Picture -- that's only part of what has professional and amateur critics up in arms. As many have noted, this year is the first since 1998 that no actors of color have been nominated. The nominations list has drawn predictable condemnation from the likes of Spike Lee and Rev. Al Sharpton, who has threatened to go to Hollywood and take »

Spike Lee criticises Oscar voters for snubbing Selma: "F**k 'em"

18 January 2015 8:53 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spike Lee has criticised the lack of Academy Award nominations for Selma.

The director said that movies featuring African Americans are regularly snubbed, and that the lack of nominations for Selma is not a reflection on the film.

Oscars 2015: What happened to diversity in this year's nominations?

Who votes for the Oscars? The ins and outs of Academy voting explained

"That doesn't diminish the film," he told The Daily Beast. "Nobody's talking about motherf**kin' Driving Miss Daisy. That film is not being taught in film schools all across the world like Do the Right Thing is.

"Nobody's discussing Driving Miss Motherf**kin' Daisy. So if I saw Ava [DuVernay, Selma's director] today, I'd say, 'You know what? F**k 'em. You made a very good film, so feel good about that and start working on the next one."

Lee also believes that African American actors and films are not Oscar-nominated on »

Spike Lee on Selma Oscars Snub, Lack of Diversity in Hollywood: "F--k 'Em"

16 January 2015 10:26 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Spike Lee is just as annoyed as anyone, if not more so, about the Oscars' snub of Selma. But as someone who has been overlooked himself -- namely in the Best Picture category for 1989's Do the Right Thing -- he knows there's more to a film's legacy than its trophy case. In an interview with The Daily Beast for an upcoming profile of the Malcolm X filmmaker, Lee addressed the Academy's snub of Selma actor David Oyelowo, who played civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. [...] »

Spike Lee Blasts Oscar Voters Over ‘Selma’ Snubs: ‘You Know What? F-ck ’Em’

16 January 2015 7:02 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Legendary director Spike Lee weighed in on the”Selma” Oscar snub Thursday, which saw director Ava DuVernay and star David Oyelowo left out of Best Director and Best Actor categories.

Lee advised DuVernay to shake it off.

“That doesn’t diminish the film,” Lee told The Daily Beast. “Nobody’s talking about motherfuckin’ Driving Miss Daisy. That film is not being taught in film schools all across the world like Do the Right Thing is. Nobody’s discussing Driving Miss Motherfuckin’ Daisy. So if I saw Ava today I’d say, ‘You know what?

"F*ck ’Em": Spike Lee Reacts To Oscar Snubs For 'Selma'

16 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of the many interesting (or disquieting) statistics to arrive in the wake of yesterday's Oscar nominations (and their snubs) is that the Academy's voting body is 93% white, 76% male with a median age of 63. Those aren't encouraging figures, seeming especially telling in light of Ava DuVernay's acclaimed "Selma" missing nominations for both Best Director and Best Actor for David Oyelowo's complex, deeply moving performance. If you were anywhere near social media yesterday, you likely saw much frustration towards those snubs, but leave it to Spike Lee to give the saltiest take. The situation is not unfamiliar to Lee, who in 1989 saw his groundbreaking "Do The Right Thing" nominated for just two Oscars: Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor. Lee's film ended up winning none, and the big prize went to film on the other end of ideological spectrum that year. "[The 'Selma' snubs] doesn’t diminish the film," Lee tells The Daily Beast. »

15 January 2015 12:44 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Do The Right Thing director Spike Lee isn.t necessarily known for following the status quo. However, his choice to release his latest film Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus via Vimeo's Video On Demand (VOD) still definitely struck us as a bit odd. Lee and Vimeo made the joint distribution announcement earlier this week, revealing that Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus would be available for purchase and rental starting immediately on the video-sharing site. With the growing popularity of movies hitting home release and VOD these days, the news wasn.t all that shocking. aside from the Vimeo part. Vimeo.s General Manager of Audience Networks Greg Clayman appears to be thrilled with the deal, releasing a statement to voice the company.s support of the project. "Spike Lee is one of the most iconic filmmakers of our time and we couldn.t be more thrilled to work with him »
