According to The Hollywood Reporter, among the notable snubs was David Oyelowo, who received praise for his turn as the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma. Many people also feel that director Ava Duvernay deserved a Best Director nod and Carmen Ejogo also should have been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Coretta Scott King.

A View rep said: “Rosie Perez is currently in rehearsal for her Broadway play. Her status with the show has not changed………

Rev. Jesse L. Jackson’s 18th Annual Wall Street Project Economic Summit, “Where Wall Street, Main Street & Silicon Valley Emerge,” took place in New York City January 13-15. Some of the highlights included releasing research on the challenge Minority-Women-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) investment firms face, a keynote address by Los Angeles Clippers owner and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer during the Access to Capital Luncheon and panel discussions on the Business of Hip Hop – Examining Next Steps and Sports after the Cheering Stops: The Next Generation of Athlete Dealmakers………
