Oscar Watch: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling lead record-tying 14 nominations for LA LA LAND (Video)

“I didn’t even know he could dance.”

That was actress Emma Stone talking about her dashing co-star Ryan Gosling. Turns out that, yes, they both can dance — exceptionally well.

News broke today that La La Land had done what a lot of critics were forecasting: dominated the 2017 Oscar nominations.

14 Oscar nominations in total to be exact; a total that ties Titanic (1997) and All About Eve (1950) for the most ever.

Although Emma Stone literally reaches for the stars in Damien Chazelle’s wonderful musical, she’s apparently still as grounded as ever.

There, Loni Stark of Stark Insider catches up with the trio to learn about some of the magic behind the film that is stealing hearts in this year’s awards season.
