Ava DuVernay, director of Selma, just tweeted a powerful outtake from her Oscar nominated film.
It’s unclear whether featured actor David Oyelowo is overcome by the speech he’s just delivered, the bittersweet completion of the project, or the emotional experience of playing the great Dr. King. Regardless, for those who weren’t already outraged at the Academy’s snub of Oyelowo in the Best Actor category, this powerful moment may change your mind.
I never shared this. I saved it for today. A special outtake of my hero. I love you, David. You are my Best Actor. https://t.co/hb26gg7fjc
