The Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic 'Selma' has received rave reviews but was overlooked when the Oscar nominations were announced. 'Selma' was nominated for Best Picture, while John Legend and Common were nominated for their song 'Glory'. That's it. Many are decrying the lack of diversity among Oscar voters themselves as the reason, but Glenn thinks it's something totally different.
"Here's why the Martin Luther King movie only received best picture and everybody is up in arms, 'oh, this is racism in Hollywood.' No. It's Progressiveism. They have no problem with the race thing. What they have a problem with is how LBJ was portrayed in that movie. The last thing that Progressives want is for their great of the 1960s, LBJ, to be remembered that way."
"So the last thing they want is 12 academy award nominations on the box of every Martin Luther King 'Selma' DVD. They don't want that. It's killing them, I think that it says Best Picture nomination on the box."
"That's why that wasn't nominated. Had nothing to do with race. Had everything to do with the way they made LBJ look, guarantee it."
