La La Land Takes 14


(January 24, 2017 – Los Angeles, California) The feel good musical throwback La La Land has come out on top in this years Academy Award® nominations taking a total of 14 including Best Actor for Ryan Gosling, Best Actress for Emma Stone, Best Picture, Best Directing, Screenplay, Score and Song. In fact two songs. Both Audition (The Fools Who Dream) and City of Stars were nominated in the Best Original Song category. It is the Canadian-born actor’s second nomination. He was previously nominated for Half Nelson in 2007.

Following at some distance with 8 nominations is Denis Villeneuve’s film, Arrival. In addition to Best Picture, Villeneuve was nominated for Directing. Arrival also picked up nominations for Editing, Production Design, Cinematography and Adapted Screenplay. Moonlight also landed 8 nominations including Best Picture and Best Directing.

There was high hopes Xavier Dolan’s latest film, Just the End of the World would have taken a nomination in Best Foreign Language film, but it was not to be.

The National Film Board (NFB) continues its amazing track record at the Oscars® picking up yet another nomination, this time for the animated short Blind Yaysha. This short film tells the story of Vaysha, a young girl born with one green eye and one brown eye. But colour isn’t the only thing that’s different about Vaysha’s gaze. While her left eye sees only the past; her right sees only the future. Like a terrible curse, Vaysha’s split vision prevents her from inhabiting the present. Blinded by what was and tormented by what will be, she remains trapped between two irreconcilable temporalities. “Blind Vaysha,” they called her.

This year’s nominations were announced in a pre-taped video package at 8:18 a.m. Eastern via a global live stream on Oscar.com, Oscars.org and the Academy’s digital platforms; a satellite feed, broadcast media and Northernstars. In keeping with tradition, PwC delivered the Oscars nominations list to the Academy on the evening of January 23.
