The musical film La La Land has been nominated for 14 Academy Awards. The consensus seems to be that the film will win many, if not all, of the categories in which it is nominated. This is despite the apparent truth that the two main characters are played by actors who are not particularly good singers or dancers. Bill Maher pointedly shouted at the camera on one of his "New Rules" segments "Ryan Gosling cannot fucking sing !" --------------------------------------------- RELATED...
