Los Angeles within the next five minutes. We know what did well the

:00:46.:00:54.

Golden Globes. It was La La Land. Let's look at some of the films in

a lot of time here over the years. Your brother has provided

Our beautiful boy. Just a suggestion as to the films

they may be hearing about in the next few minutes. A different format

:02:14.:02:22.

this year. They may look different for all of us. No one is getting up

:02:23.:02:25.

at the crack of dawn in Los Angeles, they are doing things differently.

:02:26.:02:33.

We will explain more in a moment. Lion, La La Land, Moonlight, could

all be in the running for Tom Lawrence. -- awards.

:02:43.:02:54.

Hello, and welcome to this BBC News special programme.

:02:55.:02:57.

I'm Jane Hill and we are minutes away from learning who has been

:02:58.:03:00.

nominated for the 2017 Academy Awards.

:03:01.:03:05.

The film critic Jason Solomons is with me, we'll be

:03:06.:03:09.

getting his insight into who should - and perhaps shouldn't -

:03:10.:03:12.

Let's have a quick thought about main contenders. And worth flagging

:03:13.:03:37.

the different format this year. I know you liked La La Land. I loved

:03:38.:03:41.

it. There is a backlash because people think they've been sold a

:03:42.:03:45.

classic musical from the Hollywood golden age. It is not that. It is

:03:46.:03:50.

charming many people. It got 11 BAFTA nominations. I expect

:03:51.:03:54.

double-figure nominations today from the Oscars Academy. Whether it wins

:03:55.:03:58.

on the night, that remains to be seen. There are other films

:03:59.:04:04.

available. Moonlight, I think that Scott the charm and beauty and

:04:05.:04:07.

poetry and political heft to dislodge La La Land, the story of a

:04:08.:04:13.

black boy growing up into a man in Florida. Very the moment. Manchester

:04:14.:04:19.

by the Sea is charming many people. And also in the sci-fi, Arrival,

:04:20.:04:29.

starring Amy Adams. Just ahead up what we think we will be seeing in

:04:30.:04:34.

the next few minutes because it is very different. In Los Angeles, they

:04:35.:04:39.

generally make a couple of actors and actresses get up early in the

:04:40.:04:41.

morning and stand in a theatre and announce everything life. In its

:04:42.:04:45.

infinite wisdom, the Academy has decided to do things differently

:04:46.:04:48.

this year. They are telling us they will be giving us information that

:04:49.:04:53.

has been filmed presumably in the last few days. They decided to film

:04:54.:04:58.

nominations in various cities. We will be getting details through in

:04:59.:05:02.

two tranches. We should hear the first tranche in the next few

:05:03.:05:07.

minutes. Best supporting actor, things like that. This has been

:05:08.:05:12.

filmed in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Toronto, Canada, London and

:05:13.:05:21.

Tokyo. That is what they have been filming. That is as much as we know

:05:22.:05:26.

at this stage. Let's find out exactly what the Academy wants to

:05:27.:05:31.

present this year. It is being played out live in Hollywood,

:05:32.:05:34.

keeping to a bit of tradition at least. Let's head to LA and see this

:05:35.:05:40.

transmission from the Academy. The Oscar nominations... Being nominated

:05:41.:05:50.

felt like... And honour, a legal fight, I guess I just flipped out.

:05:51.:05:56.

It is like when a pinata breaks open. I feel like the greatest.

:05:57.:06:04.

Really proud. You don't get moments like that every day. That was a

:06:05.:06:12.

moment in time. The Academy Awards you think you know? That's not how

:06:13.:06:17.

it has always been. In 1929, there were no nominations and the winners

:06:18.:06:20.

were announced in advance. Today, we're going to change things up.

:06:21.:06:25.

We're going past nominees and winners to welcome this new class

:06:26.:06:30.

and walk them through the next 33 days. For the year, I was part of

:06:31.:06:37.

that small selected group of the brightest star is. I was able to

:06:38.:06:43.

bring my mother. She always wanted to be an actress. She sat next to

:06:44.:06:49.

me. She was so proud of me walking on that stage. The nominees for

:06:50.:06:51.

supporting actor are... The nominees for cinematography

:06:52.:07:14.

are... The phone rang and my lawyer was on

:07:15.:07:34.

the phone. He said, your nominated for an Oscar. I was by myself in a

:07:35.:07:38.

hotel room. I had no family near me or anything. Before I could call my

:07:39.:07:43.

mother, the daughter rang and the waitress came in. And I just burst

:07:44.:07:46.

into tears and said, I've just been nominated for an Oscar. And she

:07:47.:07:48.

said, give us a hug. We're fortunate and of course you

:07:49.:08:33.

should have fun with all of this. But a day after, the very next day

:08:34.:08:37.

after the Oscars, the focus should be back to making films. Good films.

:08:38.:08:43.

The nominees for foreign language film are...

:08:44.:09:02.

The nominees for the live action short are...

:09:03.:09:18.

When I heard my name, I think I just about passed out. Then when I heard

:09:19.:09:29.

the director of 's name, I really lost my mind. It was just the best

:09:30.:09:36.

moment of my life. The nominees for the actor are...

:09:37.:09:58.

The nominees for sound editing are...

:09:59.:10:14.

It was early in the morning and the first thing I did was wake up my

:10:15.:10:42.

wife. Immediately, call someone that is going to take you down a few

:10:43.:10:47.

notches. That is why I woke up my wife! The nominees for production

:10:48.:10:49.

design are... The nominees for visual effects

:10:50.:11:03.

are... We were making the big chill and I

:11:04.:11:30.

was gobsmacked. Out of the blue, I had no clue. I had no expectations.

:11:31.:12:01.

A score of music in a film, that is the most impactful and powerful

:12:02.:12:11.

music. That type of power that it in pursuits, to drive every emotion and

:12:12.:12:15.

you don't even know that is what is driving your emotion. That is

:12:16.:12:20.

powerful! The nominees for original score are...

:12:21.:12:41.

The nominees for original songs are...

:12:42.:13:09.

Well, as you see, they will be back with further nominations. That is

:13:10.:13:16.

striking. Perhaps a format we can discuss. It is all new to us. That

:13:17.:13:22.

is a film produced by the Academy in the United States, not something

:13:23.:13:25.

that any media were given a preview of. That is how they have decided to

:13:26.:13:30.

do at this year. With all those, dare I say, indulgent films? The

:13:31.:13:34.

moment I heard I was nominated... It is a bit of backslapping that the

:13:35.:13:39.

film leading the way it already is La La Land. It is a big back slapped

:13:40.:13:44.

in Hollywood, it is about Los Angeles. But eight nominations for

:13:45.:13:52.

La La Land already. It is on course for a nominations record. Titanic

:13:53.:14:00.

had 14. La La Land, if it gets nominated in all other categories,

:14:01.:14:02.

and we think it might, it could equal the record. Certainly, the

:14:03.:14:09.

cinematography is knockout in La La Land. It does deserve a note for

:14:10.:14:15.

that. In terms of what we have heard so far, Jason, perhaps some

:14:16.:14:19.

categories people are interested in, best actor and Best supporting

:14:20.:14:24.

actor. Best actor, it went a lot of the way we expected. Andrew

:14:25.:14:29.

Garfield, Denzel Washington and Casey Affleck. Ryan Gosling as well

:14:30.:14:34.

from La La Land. I see this as being between Casey Affleck and Ryan

:14:35.:14:42.

Gosling. I think this is Casey Affleck's performance, he is in

:14:43.:14:48.

Manchester by the Sea and place a janitor who is frozen in time. He

:14:49.:14:52.

has to thaw throughout the drama. I cannot be his Guardian. Well, it I

:14:53.:15:06.

mean, I can't. Now, it is a curious film. It is an interesting story

:15:07.:15:10.

that stays with you. Casey Affleck is good. But he is just not a

:15:11.:15:18.

likeable character in any way. I wondered whether people might leave

:15:19.:15:23.

the cinema thinking, what a miserable so and so! Yes but the

:15:24.:15:29.

incremental floor, any smile he might break by the end, you think,

:15:30.:15:34.

thank you for that. You wait two hours for someone to smile in this

:15:35.:15:39.

movie and just about get it and feel relieved. That is his skill and he's

:15:40.:15:44.

very good in it. Best supporting actor, Lucas hedges, I thought was

:15:45.:15:49.

excellent in Manchester by the Sea, playing a nephew to Casey Affleck's

:15:50.:15:52.

uncle. He is very good in it. Best supporting actor, Lucas hedges, I

:15:53.:15:54.

thought was excellent in Manchester by the Sea, playing a nephew to

:15:55.:15:56.

Casey Affleck's uncle. Using the 20. His father, Peter hedges, wrote the

:15:57.:16:04.

screenplay to About a Boy. Oscar fact. I was delighted to see that

:16:05.:16:09.

award for her Moonlight, one of my favourites this season. Strong

:16:10.:16:13.

performance I've thought. People might know him from the TV series,

:16:14.:16:23.

House of Cards, he plays a fixer for Kevin Spacey's character. He has had

:16:24.:16:29.

a fantastic year and is in another film coming out soon. And there he

:16:30.:16:37.

is. A kindly drug dealer, a strange role. A man making his own way. A

:16:38.:16:46.

terrific film, Moonlight. Yes and Naomi Harris, we wait to see whether

:16:47.:16:54.

she might get a nod as well. It has performed strongly in the Golden

:16:55.:16:56.

Globes and this will be another interesting thing to watch. We have

:16:57.:17:01.

the second tranche of nominations coming up shortly. We have talked

:17:02.:17:06.

for a couple of years about diversity within the Academy and the

:17:07.:17:09.

people who vote for these categories. Interesting to watch how

:17:10.:17:14.

much diversity there is overall. Last year, we weren't talking about

:17:15.:17:23.

the new president of the Academy, a woman of colour herself, who was

:17:24.:17:25.

furious about the lack of diversity and she change the make-up of the

:17:26.:17:30.

academy and I think it has had an immediate effect. This year, we are

:17:31.:17:36.

discussing films like Moonlight, which has no white people involved

:17:37.:17:40.

in it, it is about the black experience and it is the kind of

:17:41.:17:43.

film that could have got lost in the cracks when we're not looking for

:17:44.:17:46.

these expanded stories. It's thoroughly deserves its place. A

:17:47.:17:53.

fantastic story. I think this is the film with most chance of dislodging

:17:54.:17:55.

everyone's front runner, La La Land. Another film made by the academy.

:17:56.:18:11.

Let us see what they present us with now with the rest of the

:18:12.:18:17.

nominations. My big piece of advice when you are nominated is not to pop

:18:18.:18:21.

the champagne. It will continue for a long time. Maybe 33 days. You have

:18:22.:18:28.

got a big job ahead. You might have to give a speech in front of

:18:29.:18:31.

millions and millions of people and you do not want to screw it up. The

:18:32.:18:35.

nominees for original screenplay award are...

:18:36.:19:00.

The nominees for adapted screenplay are...

:19:01.:19:30.

The first time I truly ever experienced the academy and the

:19:31.:19:36.

Oscars was when I was there, nominated for an Oscar. I have not

:19:37.:19:43.

stopped watching it since. The nominees for animated feature are...

:19:44.:19:57.

The nominees for animated short art...

:19:58.:20:18.

I got to meet the director and he just gave me the role after about

:20:19.:20:26.

30-45 minutes. I don't know how other people get nominated for

:20:27.:20:31.

Oscars, but for me, it was easy. Here are some more of this year's

:20:32.:20:36.

nominations. Actor in a supporting role...

:20:37.:21:08.

My phone rang, it was my father. We both started crying. Neither of us

:21:09.:21:15.

could finish the sentence. One of the greatest moments of my life. Two

:21:16.:21:19.

years later, we got nominated together. The nominees for lead

:21:20.:21:21.

actress are... To our global community of

:21:22.:22:12.

film-makers and fans and everyone who is inspired by movies and loves

:22:13.:22:16.

them as much as we do, thank you so much for joining us this morning. I

:22:17.:22:21.

am thrilled to be here, to welcome the nominees for the 89th Academy

:22:22.:22:24.

Awards. I am honoured to help announce this year's nominees for

:22:25.:22:39.

Best Picture. Arrival. Faxes. -- fences.

:22:40.:22:55.

Congratulations to all the extraordinary artists and

:22:56.:22:59.

film-makers nominated today. It is going to be a great show. Huge

:23:00.:23:05.

congratulations. Congratulations. The idea of you being an Oscar

:23:06.:23:10.

nominee is part of your name until the day you die. Embrace this

:23:11.:23:14.

moment, just being nominated makes you a winner. Make a speech anyway

:23:15.:23:20.

because there is nothing more boring than an unprepared actor. I advise

:23:21.:23:26.

them to wear comfortable shoes. Get sleep, sneak in with a flask, have a

:23:27.:23:39.

good time. All the nominations are in. The new format, all produced by

:23:40.:23:46.

the Academy in California. That is the 20th Oscar nomination for Meryl

:23:47.:23:52.

Streep. It is. She had a record already. The underrated actress! 20

:23:53.:24:00.

Oscar and nations, not bad. She is fabulous in Florence Foster Jenkins.

:24:01.:24:04.

I do not think she will win. Only three convergence into a win. I lost

:24:05.:24:11.

count with La La Land. We were watching to try to see whether it is

:24:12.:24:18.

a record. How is your maths? I think it is one short, 13 nominations, not

:24:19.:24:22.

bad. It does not have supporting roles. All of the other films have a

:24:23.:24:27.

big cast. This is concentrating on Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone both of

:24:28.:24:31.

whom who are nominated. But director. Twice nominated for

:24:32.:24:38.

original song. One of the great songs. There are lovely songs in it.

:24:39.:24:47.

Very catchy. This is perhaps not my favourite. The opening number. It is

:24:48.:24:51.

an upbeat film. If you are feeling blue, it is the film to see. We all

:24:52.:24:57.

need a bit of La La Land. It is cold in England, cold around the world,

:24:58.:25:02.

the political climate is volatile. La La Land is giving people a bit of

:25:03.:25:08.

a throwback and fun. One trip up might be that people go for the

:25:09.:25:11.

slightly more downbeat Manchester by the Sea or the sci-fi of Arrival

:25:12.:25:19.

which is sneaking up. People are flocking to the film. Surprise

:25:20.:25:24.

omission for Amy Adams who is not nominated for her lead role in that

:25:25.:25:29.

film. The academy generally seems to love Amy Adams. The conceit behind

:25:30.:25:34.

the film is that when the aliens arrive, you send an interpreter to

:25:35.:25:39.

talk to them. You do not send the army and guns and tanks come you

:25:40.:25:42.

send an interpreter to try to find out what they want and she is said

:25:43.:25:47.

interpreter. As an idea, it is interesting. It is about language,

:25:48.:25:53.

how we connect. It is part of an empathetic version of Arrival which

:25:54.:25:57.

is connecting with audiences because this is a time of division in terms

:25:58.:26:02.

of politics and people are very worried about aliens, on earth or

:26:03.:26:06.

out of it. This is a film connecting because it is a very human level,

:26:07.:26:11.

language and communication. Very smart. It changes at the end. A

:26:12.:26:16.

smart set of nominations from the Academy. Interesting, I am just

:26:17.:26:22.

hearing, I hate to diss your maths, mine is no better, we are hearing

:26:23.:26:27.

from our entertainment team that La La Land has got 14. That is a joint

:26:28.:26:35.

record. With All About Eve and Titanic. All about Eve got six and

:26:36.:26:46.

Titanic got 11, the record. I do not think it will win all of those

:26:47.:26:50.

categories. We will probably end up with seven or eight. It is looking

:26:51.:26:53.

like the big number on the night. It won ... It has been nominated in the

:26:54.:27:02.

screenplay category which is an indicator. One man who has been

:27:03.:27:08.

nominated, I'm joined on the phone by Stuart Craig, nominated for

:27:09.:27:14.

Fantastic Beasts. Production design. Congratulations. Thank you. What

:27:15.:27:22.

goes through your mind that you have -- when you hear you have been

:27:23.:27:28.

nominated? The movie Fantastic Beasts was quite a challenge. To be

:27:29.:27:42.

recognised, given the difficulty. There were literally hundreds of

:27:43.:27:45.

people involved. A close relationship between the design

:27:46.:27:49.

department and visual effects. We were mutually dependent and a very

:27:50.:27:56.

successful relationship. Lots to remember and think about. It is a

:27:57.:28:01.

fantastic looking film so I am not surprised when you say it was a very

:28:02.:28:06.

big team. When you talk about the difficulties, what particularly were

:28:07.:28:16.

the challenges? New York, we did not film, none of the principal actors

:28:17.:28:21.

went to New York at all. We decided to build a big chunk of New York in

:28:22.:28:29.

the studio. That was the number one challenge, to create a set on that

:28:30.:28:34.

scale. Without going to New York at all. Apart from with at stills

:28:35.:28:40.

camera to take some background elements to add to our physical set,

:28:41.:28:45.

real actors in the foreground. A remarkable achievement that has been

:28:46.:28:49.

recognised today. You work with JK Rowling whose first screenplay this

:28:50.:28:56.

was to make this film, recreating this from her head, carrying on from

:28:57.:29:00.

Harry Potter, how close did you work with JK Rowling on the design? Is it

:29:01.:29:07.

how she imagined it in her head? A lot of information is in the script

:29:08.:29:10.

and the stage directions, an enormous amount. More than usual.

:29:11.:29:17.

She is famous for her descriptive text, so that is an enormous help.

:29:18.:29:26.

She also visits once or twice near the beginning of the project when

:29:27.:29:29.

the designs are just about under way, so was involved in the crucial

:29:30.:29:34.

moment, if things are not quite as she imagined, they can be included

:29:35.:29:39.

at that stage. Congratulations. It is a great nomination for Britain

:29:40.:29:43.

and for British production design and British teamwork. Fantastic.

:29:44.:29:49.

Congratulations again. Thank you. Enjoy your trip to California in

:29:50.:29:53.

late February. Nominated for Fantastic Beasts. I am quite

:29:54.:30:02.

interested in the Best Actress. Some we expect, Natalie Portman, I think

:30:03.:30:06.

she was fantastic as Jackie. I was thrilled to see Ruth make the list.

:30:07.:30:14.

Nominated as well. She is up for the rising Star award at the Baftas at

:30:15.:30:18.

the British Academy Awards. In this country, she is still considered a

:30:19.:30:22.

rising star but she is nominated for an Oscar. She has risen to become an

:30:23.:30:29.

Academy Awards nominated actress. It is a film called Loving, people

:30:30.:30:34.

probably do not know Ruth Negga, Irish Ethiopian actress, starring in

:30:35.:30:39.

a great story as a woman who is married to a white man in the

:30:40.:30:43.

Mississippi south of the 1950s and they are chased out of town for

:30:44.:30:48.

being illegal. A great story. She is terrific. I think she is the big

:30:49.:30:55.

surprise. Again, no one can level at the academy that the Oscars are

:30:56.:30:58.

white because they are incredibly diverse this year with Ruth Negga's

:30:59.:31:04.

nomination, Naomie Harris nominated in the supporting category,

:31:05.:31:08.

alongside Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer. An increase in that from

:31:09.:31:13.

what we said at the beginning, a groundswell of opinion to change the

:31:14.:31:17.

colour of performances and the stories being told from a different

:31:18.:31:20.

kind of background on the big screen and Ruth Negga, great story, Loving.

:31:21.:31:28.

Wonderful story, you feel every child should be told about it in

:31:29.:31:32.

history class. Apps we will talk about that in the next few minutes.

:31:33.:31:39.

I'm pleased to say we are joined by Britain's Imke Henkel nominated for

:31:40.:31:42.

an Oscar. So lovely you could speak to us -- Dev Patel. I am floating in

:31:43.:31:56.

the clouds right now. It is really magical. I am sharing it with my

:31:57.:32:04.

crew in Bombay. We are so delighted for you, nominated for your

:32:05.:32:11.

performance in Lion. True story. Your first nomination. You have been

:32:12.:32:16.

to the Oscars before but your first personal nomination, is that right?

:32:17.:32:20.

Absolutely. Yes. I am sitting here with my mouth wide open, feeling

:32:21.:32:26.

overwhelmingly grateful right now. Have you told your family yet? I

:32:27.:32:32.

hope your folks know. I did. My mum is at work and she was screaming in

:32:33.:32:38.

her office, just she is a wreck, a ball of tears. Calling my sister and

:32:39.:32:46.

my father right now. It is just... I keep using the word amazing. I need

:32:47.:32:51.

to figure another word out right now. Lovely. Don't say any more, you

:32:52.:32:56.

will reduce us all to tears. So lovely to talk to us. Lion, for

:32:57.:33:01.

people who have not seen it, very much still on in the cinemas in the

:33:02.:33:06.

UK, based on a true story, explain to us why you were attracted to this

:33:07.:33:10.

story, why you wanted to be part of this film. I just really think it is

:33:11.:33:17.

an anthem of love. At its core, it is about mothers and sons, a young

:33:18.:33:22.

boy who goes through so much adversity to connect to his birth

:33:23.:33:27.

complex and completely uplifting at complex and completely uplifting at

:33:28.:33:33.

its core. For me to play a role at this and take on such a soulful

:33:34.:33:38.

journey, it truly was a blessing. A new look for you. Jason here.

:33:39.:33:46.

Congratulations. A new look for you, you grow up on screen. You are not

:33:47.:33:52.

the geeky kid we have seen. A new look Dev Patel. Tell us what you did

:33:53.:33:58.

for the role. That was the first conversation I had with the director

:33:59.:34:02.

after I got the role. I was shooting with Jeremy Irons at the time and I

:34:03.:34:09.

was very skinny. They said, we will turn you into an alpha male. I had

:34:10.:34:15.

to hit the gym, grow out my hair, grow a beard. He is a very sporty

:34:16.:34:21.

young man. Quite charming. Eight months of hitting weights and

:34:22.:34:26.

changing my voice and stuff like that to try to get it right. It has

:34:27.:34:30.

obviously had a great effect and the voters... Not just for you, the

:34:31.:34:38.

has been nominated, your screenplay has been nominated, your

:34:39.:34:38.

writer, your mum, Nicole Kidman, she writer, your mum, Nicole Kidman, she

:34:39.:34:41.

will be on the red carpet with you. Such a beautiful journey, for

:34:42.:34:48.

everyone to be recognised, it is... Many, many congratulations again. It

:34:49.:34:51.

is going to be quite tough to carry on filming. Dev Patel talking to us.

:34:52.:35:04.

Very happy, not surprisingly. Nominated for his role in Line. Can

:35:05.:35:09.

we do the next shot without a smile? The director will be saying. It is

:35:10.:35:14.

supposed to be a sad scene. We will see him on the red carpet. Let us

:35:15.:35:20.

had to Los Angeles because our LA correspondent has been watching this

:35:21.:35:25.

as well. Peter, it was the cheeriest procedure, wasn't it? A complete

:35:26.:35:32.

change of approach for the Academy. -- it was a curious procedure. The

:35:33.:35:38.

thinking is they want to try to reach a larger audience, by doing

:35:39.:35:44.

this digitally. Most of the announcements, in fact, all of it,

:35:45.:35:50.

was pre-recorded. That made sure they are absolutely got it right,

:35:51.:35:53.

all the names were pronounced Brett Lee, that kind of thing. We did not

:35:54.:36:01.

have the prediction -- all the names were pronounced correctly. We did

:36:02.:36:05.

not have the traditional audience. Surreal event, 5:30am in the

:36:06.:36:12.

morning. It did give the event a bit of excitement and just watching the

:36:13.:36:20.

digital feed, watching it on television, it did not feel quite

:36:21.:36:24.

the same, very slick and they have got all the facts correct, but it

:36:25.:36:29.

did not seem to be quite as exciting as the usual announcement. Whether

:36:30.:36:32.

it reached a larger audience by streaming this on YouTube, on the

:36:33.:36:38.

Academy's website, it remains to be seen, but certainly a very different

:36:39.:36:41.

way of doing it. You have been talking about it, a list of

:36:42.:36:45.

nominees, very interesting this year. The main talking point

:36:46.:36:49.

certainly here for the rest of the date will be the diversity issue

:36:50.:36:53.

which was such a big issue last year -- the rest of the day. Last year

:36:54.:36:59.

was so white, they said. They certainly cannot say that about this

:37:00.:37:03.

year's nominees. That is one of the key things we will be talking about.

:37:04.:37:08.

A quick thought about La La Land. For those who have not seen it, a

:37:09.:37:10.

love story to Hollywood, in many love story to Hollywood, in many

:37:11.:37:14.

ways. Great fun though it is, the risk is it could be seen as a bit of

:37:15.:37:20.

backslapping, lovely film about our own industry, that is how it can be

:37:21.:37:24.

perceived. Yes, it is very much an insider movie as far as this town is

:37:25.:37:31.

concerned. Los Angeles, set in modern-day LA. Extraordinary first

:37:32.:37:36.

seen leaping out of cars on the overpass on a freeway. As a feat of

:37:37.:37:42.

cinema, quite an achievement to do that. It certainly harks back to the

:37:43.:37:47.

old days of Hollywood, the golden days of Los Angeles, in terms of

:37:48.:37:54.

film-making. A modern-day edge. There are some critics of La La Land

:37:55.:37:58.

who so the story itself does not actually amount to much. Boy meets

:37:59.:38:06.

girl movie. But it personifies and gently pokes fun at a little bit at

:38:07.:38:10.

the whole ethos of Hollywood and the town of dreams and many broken

:38:11.:38:14.

dreams as well of course. Yes, indeed. Personal and professional.

:38:15.:38:20.

Thank you very much. Peter, of course, will be getting reaction to

:38:21.:38:24.

the nominations through the day for BBC News. But as talk to another

:38:25.:38:30.

nominee. Joining me on the phone, nominated for Best Costume Design

:38:31.:38:34.

for Florence Foster Jenkins. Congratulations. Thank you so much.

:38:35.:38:41.

What goes through your mind when you hear you have been nominated for an

:38:42.:38:49.

Oscar? I feel a joy and a pride in the work we did and in the wonderful

:38:50.:38:54.

team around me. All of that comes into my mind. Just happiness to be

:38:55.:38:59.

among this incredibly strong group of peers who have also been

:39:00.:39:07.

nominated. That is a huge honour. Consolata, you obviously dressed

:39:08.:39:14.

Meryl Streep primarily in this, fabulous outfits for Florence Foster

:39:15.:39:16.

Jenkins, what were the challenges and the joys to clothe the most

:39:17.:39:22.

nominated actress, even if someone feels she is overrated, I am sure

:39:23.:39:26.

you do not... What was the collaboration with the actress

:39:27.:39:29.

herself to get the costumes right? There was a lot of collaboration.

:39:30.:39:35.

She was very strong and clear and great contribution to the look.

:39:36.:39:42.

Partly because we had to pad her, she was padded throughout and she

:39:43.:39:45.

wore the padding with good humour, there was a lovely challenge of

:39:46.:39:50.

doing both her day wear and her performance were, she did many

:39:51.:39:58.

performances, but the character of Florence which is based on a real

:39:59.:40:04.

person, in a way, her clothes for day work like out of a dressing up

:40:05.:40:09.

box as well as her performance. It was a challenge. Is there any

:40:10.:40:16.

greater challenge in the fact that it was based on a real person? Does

:40:17.:40:22.

that make a difference to your work? You start with firm roots and then

:40:23.:40:29.

in a way because it is also a story, you are telling a story, and there

:40:30.:40:32.

is a point of view, there is an element... There is a lot of

:40:33.:40:37.

research done but you need to leave behind the research and take off and

:40:38.:40:41.

tell the story in the way the director wants and it has all been

:40:42.:40:45.

decided beforehand, this is a wonderful collaboration of film, the

:40:46.:40:49.

magic of film. What happens to the costumes after? Presumably Meryl

:40:50.:40:55.

cannot fit into them without the padding, she does not take them

:40:56.:40:59.

away, will we get to see them again? Will they be displayed as artefacts

:41:00.:41:03.

from Hollywood, Oscar-nominated indeed? Wonderfully enough, Meryl is

:41:04.:41:10.

taking some of the stuff, she has such a sense of humour, she has

:41:11.:41:16.

earmarked some of her pieces. A group of them are going on

:41:17.:41:22.

exhibition in Hollywood. They will be on exhibition over the next few

:41:23.:41:29.

weeks. They will be taken and archived which is a lovely thought,

:41:30.:41:34.

that they will be kept safely. That is the plan for those costumes in

:41:35.:41:39.

the future. Consolata, lovely you could join us so quickly.

:41:40.:41:45.

Congratulations again. Nominated in the Best Costume Design category. We

:41:46.:41:48.

will find out in a few weeks from now whether she has won. Do we

:41:49.:41:52.

quickly have time to talk about West actor -- Best Actor? If you had to

:41:53.:42:05.

pick one? Casey Affleck. The one, that sort of performance, it lives

:42:06.:42:14.

on him. The other raptor, Dev Patel is up against Jeff Bridges. -- the

:42:15.:42:25.

other actor. And Michael Shannon, a former winner, in Nocturnal Animals.

:42:26.:42:34.

It will be a tight contest but I think it is Casey Affleck's on if he

:42:35.:42:38.

can edge ahead the charming Ryan Gosling. I wonder whether it will be

:42:39.:42:43.

a fantastic day for Naomie Harris. She has just joined us on the phone.

:42:44.:42:52.

Many congratulations. Naomie Harris, I hope you can hear us? We wanted to

:42:53.:42:57.

say, congratulations on your Oscar-nominated in. Thank you so, so

:42:58.:43:02.

much. I am over the moon. I cannot believe this. I heard the news from

:43:03.:43:07.

my brother because I was too terrified to listen to the live

:43:08.:43:11.

nomination. Fantastic, fantastic moment. I couldn't be more thrilled.

:43:12.:43:18.

I am so excited as well that the movie has been nominated in so many

:43:19.:43:24.

categories. Really fantastic. So unexpected. This must be a real

:43:25.:43:30.

surprise. You only did three days work on this movie, not a bad

:43:31.:43:35.

return! I know! I only did three days and also it was a movie I was

:43:36.:43:39.

considering turning down. Initially, I did turn it down. It is quite a

:43:40.:43:46.

result. And I certainly would be kicking myself if I had turned it

:43:47.:43:50.

down. I wish we could talk to you for so much longer. So brilliant you

:43:51.:43:54.

could speak to us, even momentarily. Well done to your brother for

:43:55.:43:58.

getting in touch with you so quickly. Naomie Harris, thank you,

:43:59.:44:03.

nominated for Moonlight. We find out who will win on the 27th of

:44:04.:44:09.

February. We will be with you to find out who wins in the Baftas as

:44:10.:44:13.

well before then. Goodbye for now. Once again fog causing issues. This

:44:14.:44:24.

was up the road from Heathrow. The sun trying to come out under the low

:44:25.:44:30.

cloud. Sunshine across most

:44:31.:44:32.
