      Kinda ironic “Birth of a Nation” didn’t receive an Oscar nom due to a 19 year old rape allegation where the film maker was not convicted. As opposed to, say, Polanski, who won an Oscar after being convicted.

      Not that it will anyway, but The Birth of a Nation never would’ve received an Oscar nod at this point, seeing that noms for 2016 releases are over two weeks away…

      Birth of a Nation is DW Griffith’s masterpiece.
