Ruth Negga: Nominated Golden Globe Award 2017 for Best Drama Actress for her portrayal of Mildred Loving

Ruth Negga, receives a Golden Globe Award 2017 (USA) best drama actress nomination for her interpretation of Mildred Loving in the film Loving (Jeff Nichols, 2016).

Ruth Negga of Irish and Ethiopian parentage, was born in Ethiopia and raised in Ireland. She has received rave reviews for her role as Mildred Loving in the film Loving (2016) by Jeff Nichols. The film is based on the true story of the Lovings, a interracial married couple in the U.S. state of Virginia in the 1950s-1960s. The Lovings’ relationship, deemed illegal during that time due to laws prohibiting interracial marriage, lead to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court civil rights decision Loving v. Virginia (1967), which overturned the anti-miscegenation statute.
