Home Movies Oprah Snaps Up TV Rights to “The Butler” for 2017

Smart, smart, smart: Oprah Winfrey has snapped up TV rights to Lee Daniels’ “The Butler.” The movie will play on OWN after it’s had its cable and pay TV showings and DVD sales. Oprah, of course, will be nominated for Best supporting Actress from “The Butler.” I dare say she will win, as well. Winfrey has made an investment in herself and the movie. “The Butler” has made over $106 million. Look for Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Actor (Forest Whitaker), Supporting Actress (Winfrey), Supporting Actor (David Oyelowo), Director (Daniels), Screenplay (Danny Strong), and Best Song (Gladys Knight song written by Lenny Kravitz).
