These Oscars categories deserve love, too

In addition to the movie's massive nomination total, La La Land has been picking up serious steam with a series of wins in the months-long Hollywood awards season that will culminate with the Academy Awards this weekend. "You have to remember that the Oscars ceremony is the industry giving awards to itself". That trend continued a year ago with the split between "The Revenant" director Alejandro G. Iñárritu and "Spotlight" for best picture. Her 2-word message: "Thank you". "And now, please welcome our first white presenter, Anne Hathaway". Bonus: Name the second to last musical that won-and the year. And we must similarly wait to see who will claim statues in all of the other categories, from Best Actor and Best Actress to Best Cinematography and Best Score. There are several ways the Academy could go in the unlikely event that it shuts out La La Land. It will grab best picture, best director and all the set design, costume and music awards.

Barring anything wildly unforeseen, "La La Land" should stay on track to win best picture, as well as director and actress honors following the same wins from the major guilds and the British Academy.

In addition to her comments on Streep, this year's anonymous voter said La La Land star Emma Stone's performance wasn't "as wonderful" as everyone is saying, the sci-fi thriller Arrival "just sucked" and the Denzel Washington-Viola Davis starring Fences underwhelmed because "they just filmed the play". With the exception of Streep, whose performance as Florence Foster Jenkins was moving but didn't deserve a nomination, it's a contest between Stone and Portman. One of the more memorable moments occurred in 1978 when Vanessa Redgrave won best supporting actress for "Julia" and used her acceptance speech to condemn the "Zionist hoodlums" that had been campaigning against her because of her pro-Palestinian views. Neither came close to getting noticed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences or any other movie award groups.
