Ava DuVernay was recognized with a nomination for Best Director, and David Oyelewo (who stars as Dr. King) earned a nomination for Best Actor. Finally, a Best Original Song nomination was awarded to John Legend and Common for “Glory.”

With the film being released in select theaters on Christmas Day and a national release on January 9 of next year, these nominations are sure to bring forth more interest in what is shaping up to be a box-office smash.
