The gorgeous drama unravels the emotional journey of one boy’s life in three dramatic stages (each played by a different incredible Black actor) as he navigates his personal desires and responsibilities. Moonlight won and it so deserved it. It has also rendered everyone speechless. All anyone can say is: Moonlight.

Edit: this is about not condemning or hating groups of marginalized people. Individuals can be horrible, and I’m not saying you should support that, I’m just saying I support these groups as a whole. 💖
Listen, I think everyone who has seen La La Land can agree that - while definitely a great movie - it does not deserve so many Oscar nominations.
The story isn’t really anything we haven’t seen before, and the roles aren’t at all demanding. So no, I don’t think neither Emma nor Ryan deserve the Oscar, and the film definitely does not deserve Best Picture.
That being said, perhaps they do deserve Best Cinematography and Best Original Score.
But if it wins Best Picture over Moonlight, Hidden Figures, Fences, Arrival, and Hacksaw Ridge, then that will be absolute bullshit.
