Oscar-nominees hit DVD just ahead of Academy Awards

Oscar-nominees hit DVD just ahead of Academy Awards

This year marks his fourth time as the musical director of the Oscars.

Who was the first African American women to win an award?

Emma Stone was viewed as a certain Best Actress Oscar victor for "La La Land" until the French actress Isabelle Huppert scored an upset win at the Golden Globes for her work in "Elle". They will reportedly perform their nominated songs, including "How Far I'll Go" from "Moana", "The Empty Chair" from "Jim: The James Foley Story", "Can't Stop the Feeling" from "Trolls" as well as "Audition (The Fools Who Dream)" and "City of Stars" from "La La Land".

La La Land earned 14 nominations, making the film tied with Titanic (1997) and All About Eve (1950) for the most Oscar nods in history.

The winners' names are sealed and shut to be opened on Sunday night February 26, 2017 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. She was the one silver lining in the oversaturated and overrated "La La Land"-completely outshining her co-star Ryan Gosling". After the "Oscars so white" controversy, the Academy Awards have become more inclusive and diverse than ever.

Denzel Washington in Fences. His closest competition is from Casey Affleck who gave a nuanced performance in Manchester By the Sea but since he has gotten himself embroiled in sexual harassment allegations and lawsuits the Academy might overlook his performance.

At the Grammys, by contrast, producer Ken Ehrlich came out before the show and urged award recipients during the broadcast to "say something important". Meanwhile, Mahershala Ali ("Moonlight") is the favorite among the Supporting Actor nominees.

Luckily, this was a stellar year for acting, with solid-to-great nominees in all four categories (though the absence of Amy Adams in the Best Actress category merits a side-eye). But only one will take it home.

To wit: Oscar frontrunner La La Land, an American film about white people living in Los Angeles, received a record-tying 14 Academy Award nominations and is expected to nearly clean sweep Hollywood's night of nights. Lucas Hedges has received too little notice for his performance in "Manchester by the Sea", so an upset in his favor would be a pleasant surprise. That leaves original screenplay a two-horse race between presumed frontrunner "Manchester by the Sea" and "La La Land". Usually, the Writers Guild of America award is a good predictor of the Oscar victor, but not this year; "Moonlight", which won the WGA award for Best Original Screenplay, is nominated for the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar, so it won't compete with Chazelle and Lonergan's scripts. "I didn't think it was available for me.' That is the proudest moment of my life", Wheeler said. He has won virtually every prize in the run-up to the Oscars. It's possible "Moonlight" steals the award, but I wouldn't bet on it.
