The 2015 Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning and we've VERY excited that the civil rights film SELMA, David Oyelowo, Don Cheadle, Ava DuVernay (history making!) and Viola Davis are among the nominees. More inside...

On the heels of the SAG Award nominations, Hollywood has stepped up to the plate and honored the contributions of several YBF actors, actresses and directors who've put their stamp on Tinsletown.

Among the nominees are "House of Lies" star Don Cheadle (and this year we REALLY hope he finally wins!), "How To Get Away With Murder" star Viola Davis and SELMA star David Oyelowo and John Legend and Common ("Best Original Song").  Unfortunatey, "Scandal" was shut out.

And we'd like to congratulate SELMA director Ava DuVernay who landed in the BEST MOTION PICTURE - Drama category and the BEST DIRECTOR field, making her the FIRST Black Female Director to land the latter honor.  During an exclusive chat with TheYBF previously, she told us, 

"There are a lot of these beautiful independent films by black directors that are so gorgeous but we can't get larger audiences because people just don't know about them."

We hope this nomination will bring more awareness to Black independent films AND directors.  Congrats!
