Common Gives Emotional Golden Globes 2015 Speech (Video)

Common and John Legend pose in the press room while showing off their trophy for Best Original Song at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 11) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The guys won the award for their song “Glory” from the movie Selma, beating out some music heavyweights like Lana Del Rey, Lorde, and more for the prize.

“The first day I stepped on the set of Selma, I began to feel like this was bigger than a movie. As I got to know the people of the Civil Rights movement,” Common said in his acceptance speech. “I realize I am the hopeful black woman who was denied her right to vote. I am the caring white supporter killed on the front lines of freedom. I am the unarmed black kid who maybe needed a hand but instead was given a bullet. I am the two fallen police officers murdered in the line of duty.”

FYI: Common is wearing Prada.

David Oyelowo 'Felt a Call of God' to Do the Movie 'Selma'

David Oyelowo hits the carpet while attending the 2015 National Board of Review Awards Gala held at Cipriani 42nd Street on Tuesday (January 6) in New York City.

The 38-year-old English actor was in attendance to support his movie Selma, which won the NBR Freedom of Expression Award.

Also attending the event were David‘s Selma co-star Common and director Ava DuVernay, as well as Top Five‘s Chris Rock.

David recently opened up about his need to star in the critically acclaimed film.

“When I first read the script in 2007, I wouldn’t cast me as Dr. King, between being English and at that point I’ve done very few American movies, but I felt a call of God to do this thing,” he said.

'Selma' Cast Wears 'I Can't Breathe' Shirts at NYC Premiere

David Oyelowo stands front and center while standing alongside the cast of his movie Selma at the New York Public Library on Sunday evening (December 14) in New York City.

The stars wore “I Can’t Breathe” shirts to protest the death of Eric Garner, who was strangled by a NYPD cop earlier this year.

Also in attendance at the premiere were stars Oprah Winfrey, Carmen Ejogo, Tessa Thompson, Alessandro Nivola, Cuba Gooding Jr, Dylan Baker, Niecy Nash, Common, and Oprah‘s friend Gayle King, as well as director Ava DuVernay.

“Thankfully, we’re seeing a lot of the same good sides of protests happening with these protests — i.e. that they are nonviolent, and that we are now seeing black and white and everything in between coming together against injustice,” David told THR about what today’s protestors can learn from the movie.

FYI: Carmen is wearing a Vivienne Westwood dress. Tessa is wearing a Rodarte dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Sha Nazarian of DiamondDNY jewelry.
