Ridiculous History

Ava DuVernay as the first Black Female nominated for Best Director (only the fifth woman) at the Golden Globe Film Awards.

It is what it is and well, if there is such history, today, one couldn't and shouldn't be more glad than that person be someone like Ava DuVernay. Right? No matter how frustating this history might be!

As I said, about Ava DuVernay being the right kind of person for this frustating history, here is her response to her Golden Globe nomination:
"The "first" of it all is the bittersweet part. I'm certainly not the first black woman deserving of this. You can't tell me that since 1943 there's not been another black woman who's made something worthy of this kind of recognition. But for whatever reason it hasn't happened. The time is now. I thank them for recognizing Selma. I just hope … that we get through all the 'firsts,' that we can just get to the good stuff and that people can just make their work and move on from [that conversation]."
