“La La Land” leads the pack this year with 14 Academy Award nominations. We continue our Oscar preview series this week with a look at how “La La Land” pays tribute to the movie musicals that preceded it.
Our annual series looking at Oscar-nominated films continues this week. Up next is a conversation about "Hidden Figures" and high-level math with Kizuwanda Grant of Paul Quinn College .
Over the next few weeks, we'll be looking at some of this year’s Oscar-nominated films. First up is "Fences," an adaptation of the August Wilson play, and a conversation with a Dallas actor who’s twice played the role for which Denzel Washington is nominated.
