‘Selma’ Cast Gets White House Red Carpet After Oscars Snub

Updated on

Oprah Winfrey along with other members of the cast and crew from the movie “Selma,” mostly snubbed in nominations for the Academy Awards, will get the red-carpet treatment tonight at the most exclusive theater in the U.S.

President Barack Obama will host a private screening of the movie at the White House’s family theater Friday, a day after the film’s largely-black cast was ignored in every acting and directing category by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the annual Oscar nominations.
