What Happened, Miss Simone? was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Music Film of 2015!
Nina Simone herself NEVER received a Grammy Award, although her 1959 hit ‘I Loves You Porgy’ was inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 2000. Her peers like Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan have all been acknowledged by the Grammys. but Simone, a musical giant and true freedom fighter, is still not recognized for her impressive and influential body of work. Not yet anyway!!
Congrats to the producers of the film:
Liz Garbus, Jayson Jackson, Amy Hobby, and Justin Wilkes
