Oscars 2017: La La Land On Course To Win With 14 Award Nominations

Oscars 2017: Critically acclaimed musical La La Land ties the record for most nominations received by a single film

Aaaaand, the Oscar 2017 nominations are finally in. Let the desk debates/discussions officially begin!

With a slew of incredible films making this year’s cut, we were hardly surprised that much lauded and beloved modern musical La La Land — starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling — landed the most nominations for a single film, tying the record at 14 nods with legendary flicks Titanic and All About Eve.

It’s also fantastic to see that following the controversy of last year’s #OscarsSoWhite issue, a wealth of diversity across the Academy’s talent pillars is now being justly represented – including our own Naomie Harris in a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role in the ground-breaking American drama Moonlight, and Arrival’s Bradford Young, one of the few black cinematographers to be ever nominated for an Oscar.
