Director Ava DuVernay's Selma, a film chronicling Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s historic Alabama march that spurred President Lyndon Johnson to sign the Voting Rights Act of 1965, scored three Golden Globe nominations on Thursday: best picture, best actor (David Oyelowo) and best director. The director nod is history-making; no African-American female director has ever been tapped into the category by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association before. USA TODAY's Andrea Mandell catches up with the director as she makes her way to the Toronto airport.
We just spoke with David. It sounds like you two have had quite a morning.
