One of the amazing things with the casting and producers of La La Land made sure we understood there was an error and ushered us on stage.

When asked by VOA to analyze his character - a blistering man, dubious husband and unforgiving father - Washington replied, “Who is Troy? He doesnt know. He’s working it out. That why there is great drama because it is drama, 'cause all the questions are not answered when the curtain goes up.” And who didn't love the film "Hidden Figures", a heartwarming hit drama about three African American women who helped NASA in the '60s send the first American into space and then on the moon? The movie has won the hearts and minds of fans, a reminder that audiences crave stories with non-formulaic characters in unconventional situations. When these characters and stories win, we all do, because such narratives become the catalyst of equality in popular culture. So, the more such roles are awarded, the more the film industry is encouraged to push the envelope in casting. WATCH: Penelope's video report

Several of the other best picture nominees are less dreamy than La La Land, and, when it comes to storytelling and casting, they display diversity.
