“La La Land,” the Hollywood musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, received a record 14 Oscar nominations, tying “Titanic” and “All About Eve” for the most nominations a movie has ever garnered.
Despite the dominance of “La La Land”, the Academy of Motion Pictures seems to have moved past the #OscarSoWhite controversy that had dogged it for the last two years. A number of films with diverse casts and themes have received nominations this year, including “Moonlight” (8 noms), The Ava DuVernay doc “13th,” and acting noms for actors from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
