Tuesday the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released their nominations for the 89th Academy Awards. La La Land hit the record for most nominations received by a single film - 14, tying with Titanic and All About Eve. (vanityfair.com) Here at Lovebook, we LOVE films, and can't wait to find out who the winners will be. Below is a list of some of our favorite categories and OUR predictions for who will win!
best animated film
Dwayne Johnson is just too much of a hunk for us to pass up. Thanks to his sexy voice that makes us wanna moan, Moana gets our vote!
Fashion is a category that nearly every human can get behind. How we have expressed ourselves throughout history and through fictional stories is meaningful. While all of these films had very talented costume designers, our choice goes to Mary Zophres for the way she dressed the oh-so-dapper Ryan Gosling.
Best visual effects
Any film that weaves together time reversal, teleportation, time loops, alternate dimensions, supernatural powers, energy, and immortality is bound to impress - at least it better! That's why our choice for the Award for Best Visual Effect goes to Dr. Strange.
Here at Lovebook, we love a musicals. La La Land is a charming, magical film that lifted our spirits, and made us all want to sing along until the final credits.
Natalie Portman brilliantly examines the wearied, broken Jackie as she struggles to disentangle her own perspective, legacy, and, possibly most difficult of all, her agony from a tragedy experienced by her entire country. She gets our vote!
Okay - we have a confession to make here at Lovebook: We ALL have a crush on Ryan Gosling! Not one, but TWO of our team members met Ryan at the Starbucks they worked at before LoveBook! So yeah, we got connections. If any of you happen to know Mr. Gosling, can you tell him to return our calls? Because he's won our vote! Free LoveBook to anyone who can get Ryan to approve this message!
For Best Picture category, you guessed it, La La Land! We just loved the way it captures the true spirit of, oh who are we fooling, anything with Ryan Gosling is a dead winner with us. He could be standing in a pile of dead fish and we'd still be swept off our feet. Any film with Ryan Gosling gets our stamp of approval!
So there you have it! Our not-so-comprehensive list of our top picks for the 2017 Academy Awards, which airs in one month on Sunday, February 26th. Do you have a favorite?
