When it comes to the Oscars , the question whirling in the rarefied air surrounding La La Land is not whether but how many . After a Golden Globes outing worthy of its own gushing musical number, the cinematic ode to Hollywood has traveled what seems to be an anointed path toward golden-man glory. But what are the movies chances at taking all of the 14 awards for which it was nominated, and where does that situate it in Oscar history? Heres the rundown on its prospects for victory on Sunday, Feb. 26. What records has it already set? La La Land has tied the record for most nominations 14putting it in the company of just two movies, All About Eve and Titanic . This is out of a total of 24 categories, though keep in mind that a film cant possibly be nominated for all of them: three awards recognize short films, and though nominees for Best Documentary, Animated Feature and Foreign Film can be nominated for awards like Best Picture, it happens infrequently (see: Beauty and the Beast , Up , Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon ).

The ancients believed that the Earth was surrounded by celestial spheres, which produced divine music when they moved. We lived, so to speak, in a huge musical instrument. This may sound silly but modern science has proved them right to a certain extent. Satellites recording sound waves resonating with the Earth's magnetosphere – the magnetic bubble that protects us from space radiation – show that we are indeed living inside a massive, magnetic musical instrument.

Music by Videosuploaded123 Get your tissue boxes ready. On Wednesday, the BRIT Awards remembered the countless industry vets we lost this past year. Specifically, the awards show focused on the tragic death of George Michael . In case you forgot, the Faith singer passed away this past Christmas due to heart failure. George touched many people's lives, which explains why his former Wham bandmate Andrew Ridgeley and the duo's backing vocalists, Helen Pepsi" DeMacque and Shirlie Holliman , got teary eyed while speaking about their fallen friend onstage. The emotional moments didn't stop there though as Chris Martin also performed a musical tribute to Michael during the show! Be sure to ch-ch-check out the touching tribute for yourself (above)!

The movie was being filmed in the Kyiv suburbs from November 2013 till February 2014. The last scenes were filmed just before ex-president Viktor Yanukovych, who didnt recognize the Holodomor as an act of genocide, fled the country, driven out by the EuroMaidan Revolution.

Canadian actor Barry Pepper, famous for playing Daniel Jackson in “Saving Private Ryan” and prison guard Dean Stanton in “The Green Mile,” stars as the protagonist’s father. “As you can see from today’s media, Stalin’s long shadow still affects Ukraine, but our story is essentially one of love triumphing over all that life throws at it,” Mendeluk is quoted as saying on the film’s official website, www.
