Ava DuVernay is 'stunned' over her Golden Globe directing nod for 'Selma'

Being first African-American woman nominee is 'bittersweet'

One of the nicest surprises from this morning's 2015 Golden Globe nominations was the love the Hollywood Foreign Press Association bestowed upon Ava DuVernay's "Selma."

It's somewhat disheartening that DuVernay is only the fifth woman nominated by the HFPA (still more than the Academy Awards for the moment) and the first African-American one, but this sort of love for one of the best pictures of the year? We can only hope Oscar is listening.

Tilda Swinton ponders a 'Snowpiercer' prequel and irresistible party invitations

An amazing year for the cinema icon

Each film needed to be an "American" film -- one guesses that is determined by financing -- and while "The Imitation Game" was eligible due to financing "Theory of Everything" was not.
