David recently chatted with The Telegraph about how he is satisfied with the movie’s success thus far, despite being snubbed in many major Oscar categories.

“My initial reaction [to the Oscar nominations] was that it’s great that we got a Best Picture,” he said. “We couldn’t have done anymore. [Selma] is the best reviewed film of the year. We’re making tens of millions at the box office, and I get to play Dr King. I think we did our best.”
