Oscars Loving & LGBT Moonlight

By Charlotte Robinson, January 24, 2017
 "La La Land" dominated the Oscars with fourteen nominations, LGBT themed “Moonlight” received eight nominations & newcomer Ruth Negga received Best Actress in a Leading Role nomination for “Loving.” Based on the historic legal case, “Loving V. Virginia,” “Loving” is a timely film about overcoming significant, systemic obstacles during the Civil Rights Movement telling the true story of the plaintiffs, interracial couple Richard & Mildred Loving. With everyone’s civil rights in jeopardy in the Trump administration its an important film to catch especially since the case was cited over & over again in our fight to win marriage equality. Ruth Negga stated, “I am truly humbled by the news this morning & I thank the Academy for this recognition, which I share with my co-collaborators Jeff Nichols & Joel Edgerton. It has been such an honor to have been given the opportunity to tell the incredible story of Richard & Mildred Loving, who serve as an inspiration that ordinary people can do extraordinary things. The Lovings fought quietly yet tirelessly & changed the course of American legal history. Today, to be among such extraordinary women - my fellow nominees, my peers with films this year & the legendary performers whose work of years past has long inspired me...this means a great deal to me.” The 89th Academy Awards will be announced at a live ceremony on ABC on February 26th at 8P hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
