La La Land Leads Oscar Pack With 14 Academy Award Nominations
Fences, Hidden Figures and Moonlight have broken last year’s #OscarsSoWhite trend wherein many African American figures got unfairly shut out of the awards. This extends to the actors’ categories, with Denzel Washington, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer all nominated for acting awards. As usual, fake movie Hidden Fences is again snubbed, but I suppose that is just the way.
Also, Mahershala Ali was nominated for Moonlight, and he’s amazing so I am very excited for that.
Also weird and amazing movie The Lobster was nominated for Best Original Screenplay, which is awesome. Oh, the screenplay awards! That’s where things get fun!
