ST. LOUIS — A documentary based on a St. Louis man has been nominated for an Academy Award.

“St. Louis Superman” is based on Bruce Franks Jr. and his journey as a battle rapper, Ferguson activist and state representative in Missouri.

‘Known as Superman to his constituents, he is a political figure the likes of which you've never seen - full of contradictions and deep insights, who has overcome unspeakable loss to become one of the most exciting and unapologetic young leaders in the country. This short verité documentary follows Bruce at a critical juncture in his life, when he is forced to deal with the mental trauma he's been carrying for the nearly 30 years since his 9-year-old brother was shot and k*lled in front of him, in order to find peace and truly fulfill his destiny as a leader for his community,’ a summary on IMBD reads.

“St. Louis Superman” directors Smriti Mundhra and Sami Khan were nominated in the Documentary Short category of the Oscars.

Franks reacted to the news on Twitter by writing, "Aye y'all! I'm Oscar Nominated!"


Here is the full list of nominees in the category:

In the Absence
Learning to skateboard in a warzone (if you’re a girl)
Life overtakes me
St. Louis Superman
Walk run cha-cha
You can watch the trailer for "St. Louis Superman" in the video below.




Clap for em!

The same guy who was voted into the house of representatives, got caught stealing a bunch of money and writing checks to himself then resigned for "mental health" reasons? That guy?

What white politician is a battle rapper and gets threads made about them on boxden? If there is any, I probably don't trust them either. He got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Ooops is a fitting name.

Maybe so but Ooops is slow slow slow blowing his political career for some petty scams and claiming bankruptcy. Now with this Oscar nomination he's all up on Twitter talking bout his price just went up and small leagues better have that deposit. The man is a grifter.

fam we don't trip off n*ggas like you who never jumped off the porch & done sh*t with your petty existence, all you've done was type type type, the type that would get his jaw tested on the darkside, the type that wasn't there with big syl from the jvl, speaking down on a man that's done more in 5 years than you've done with your life, there's a reason the youth listen to oops in these streets, do the math dummy, you better be blessed n*ggas went legit or you'd probably just be another victim. you just another social media keyboard warrior who sees life thru rose colored lenses. instead of talking about another man, do something useful with ya own life, that's right you cant, cuz the best part of you is still stuck to a handrail ya sister slid down in the 7th grade, enjoy the projects n*gga.

I don't have a porch or a sister but your man Ooop's people have been involved in putting false convictions on me and have been recently in touch with the police trying to put more false charges on me.

I never read this until now. Maybe I can't relate to Bruce Franks Jr. the politician but I can relate to this story about wanting to k*ll himself, suffering from anxiety and depression while losing the people you care about.



'The toughest battle was with myself:' Bruce Franks Jr. is leaving St. Louis to heal
