Oscars 2017 NominationsLive Stream The Academy Awards
The Oscar 2017 nominations are out and of course, I had a lot of say about it. I’ve always had a love and hate relationship with The Academy Awards as it is mostly a showcase for Hollywood to be self-congratulatory. The usual suspects were nominated but also, #OscarsSoWhite was heard loud and clear this year, resulting in the most Black people being nominated in almost every category. (See full list). This is a great start but we have a long way to go! I dive deep into La La Land’s absurd 14 nominations, Mel Gibson and Casey Affleck and Meryl Streep's record-breaking noms. Here we go.
