  1. Awesome predictions. You have nailed the nominations…

  2. “La La Land”, a whimsical ode to Hollywood musicals of the past, tied the record set by “Titanic” and “All About Eve” by bagging 14 nods at the 89th Academy Awards nominations announced on Tuesday.

    The candy-coloured love story earned nods for best picture, best director for 32-year old Damien Chazelle and best actress and actor nods for its lead stars, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling at the nominations.

    The Academy, which faced a lot of criticism for its lack of diversity for last two years, addressed the topic by nominating actors like Denzel Washington, Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, Ruth Negga, Mahershala Ali, British-Indian Dev Patel, Naomie Harris and films like “Hidden Figures” and “Fences” and “13th”.

    “La La Land”, about two dreamers trying to make it big in the city as they fall in love, will face competition at the Academy awards next month from sci-fi drama “Arrival” and “Moonlight”, with both landing a total of eight nominations.

    Jimmy Kimmel will host this year’s ceremony on February 26.

    I don’t think La La Land will win best picture..Moonlight kind of movie have better chance at Oscars. Best actor also I doubt. But I would love to see Emma Stone winning and rooting for her. She was just magical in La La Land 🙂

  4. I’ve probably seen fewer films this year than in years past, but as always your article on your favorites from the year is one of my year’s cinematic highlights…This list is intriguing, but I still need the main event!

  5. Always fascinating that you must have watched all these films to be in a position to predict nominations.
