Oscars 2015 nominations- David Oyelowo and Ava Duvernay miss out as Selma is Snubbed

The Oscars 2015 nominations were announced this morning and while most of the nominees were expected, some firmly tipped names were conspicuously absent from the list.

Selma actor David Oyelowo, who was hotly tipped for the academy award for best actor for his performance as Dr Martin Luther King Jr in historic movie ‘Selma’, was overlooked as was the movie’s director Ava Duvarnay, who had been tipped to become the first black woman director to be nominated for an Oscar.

Despite its raving reviews in the US, the film failed to get any nominations at the BAFTAS or OSCARS.

The nominees for best actor include Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything, Benedict Cumberbatch for The Imitation Game along with Bradley Cooper for American Sniper.
