"I am so grateful for this honor and I'm so happy to share this feeling with my 'La La Land' family," said Emma Stone, who also got nominated for the Best Actress.
"I'm also overjoyed that the movie has connected with audiences in the way it has, and that it's hopefully putting a kick in their step to those who watch it." "This is beyond any of our wildest imaginings and we can't wait to celebrate together." Said the actress.
The film grabbed the nominations in Best Direction, Best Picture, Cinematography, Best Actor, Sound Editing, Best Actress, Sound Mixing, Costume Design, Production Design, Original Score, Film Editing, Original Screenplay.
