Yesterday the nominations were revealed for The 89th Academy Awards and as expected La La Land leads with 14 nominations!!!! That ties the record with All About Eve and Titanic for most nominations EVER! Both Ryan Gosling and Emma stone received nominations for their performances too.
That’s not all, this year will be the first time that a black actor has been nominated in every single acting category!
The New York Times reported that there is another big story line to watch and that is will Washington Heights’ own, Lin-Manuel Miranda take home the Oscar for his original song from the movie Moana? If he wins he will be the 13th person to ever achieve the EGOT title. That means he will have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony!!!
The only thing missing is that Oscar soooooooo… fingers crossed! He is competing against Justin Timberlake in the same category for Justin’s song from Trolls, “Cant’ Stop The Feeling.”
