With the new year, a new list of 2017 Oscar nominees is here already. Being the most famous and prestigious movie competition of the world, even being nominated for an Oscar is amazing enough. Here are a few picks from our editor-in-chief:

OSCARS

La La Land

With its unique name, “La La Land” does not give us any tips on what the movie is about, but it sure has something to do with music. A jazz pianist falls for an actress in Los Angeles and a magical story reveals itself. I may sound like just another romantic drama, but the movie 13 nominations in total. Very impressive indeed, I bet this is not your ordinary romantic drama.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The legend of star wars story is back and this is the second one. With so many fans worldwide, the movie is sure to hit the theaters with a big financial success. But would that be enough for Oscars? Well, apparently, the answer is neither yes nor no. The movie has 2 nominations in total.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

With yet another movie from a worldwide famous franchise, what a great time to be alive! This Harry Potter spin-off surely has the magic of J.K. Rowling herself as she is the screen-writer. But would that be enough? With only 180 USD budget, the movie’s worldwide box office is nearly 800 USD. Truly magical! Sadly, this impressive movie has only 2 nominations.

Moana

An improved mindset gives way to an improved movie: this Disney movie is doing its best to avoid stereotypes on young women and embraces diversity. The movie has only 2 nominations, but thanks to its non-stereotypical depiction of a young woman, it won the Oscar of our hearts already.
