... the tales of two sisters

Dana lives in Seattle, and Tracie lives in Germany. We are businesswomen, writers and humorists. We write about life, dating, and today's modern women.

And the Winner Is . . .

And as a follow up to Dani’s post yesterday about the movie Selma and the snubbing or non nomination of director Ava DuVernay (and actor David Oyelowo), at least we can take satisfaction in the fact that John Legend and Common were awarded the golden statue for the best original song in that category with their timely piece entitled “Glory”.

In the face of the world today, there could not have been a more opportune time for this composition.

And after a powerful performance, each of these men used their acceptance speeches as platforms to highlight our ongoing quest for civil rights.

I ask myself if without the existence of this film, would the song have been created. I like to tell myself not – at least not be in existence this very minute – and in that sense Ms. DuVernay, Mr. Oyelowo, Oprah and all those involved in the making of Selma are winners.

ANYWAY.
