‘La La Land’ Dominates the 2017 Oscar Nominations

By  | 

After the record breaking run at the Golden Globes, La La Land continued it’s award run. It picked up fourteen Academy Award nominations this morning including Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Actor for Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

Denzel Washington and Viola Davis received nominations for Fences. Janelle Monae and Octavia Spencer got nods in the Best Supporting Actress category for Hidden Figures. This ends a two year diversity drought of African Americans and other people of color passed up for the nominations that prompted the #OscarsSoWhite Twitter campaign.

My favorite movie of 2016 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story received two technical nominations.
