AN ADDITIONAL THOUGHT ON THE ISSUE OF SELMA NOT GETTING MORE SCREENPLAY NOMINATIONS


I have, yet, an additional thought on the issue of Selma not getting more screenplay nominations.  Everyone’s anger is focused on the Academy, and they have their problems and issues that need to be addressed when it comes to minorities, God knows.  But the Academy, as a whole, is the one that gave the movie a best picture nomination.  But Selma did not get a single PGA, DGA, WGA, or SAG nomination.  So instead of focusing the anger on the Academy, shouldn’t as much or even more anger be put on the various unions and guilds?  Isn’t this as much an issue, if not more, than the Academy as a whole?  In fact, in some ways, isn’t the Academy being used somewhat as a scapegoat when it comes to the real problem? Just asking.
