2. La La Land

Right now, the odds on favorite for a Best Picture nomination (and maybe even win) is La La Land, from Whiplash director Damien Chazelle. The musical romantic comedy tells the story of an aspiring actress (played by Emma Stone) who falls in love with a down-and-out piano player (Ryan Gosling). Movie fans already know that the chemistry between the two leads is palpable (case in point: Crazy, Stupid, Love) and both actors have serious dramatic chops, so you can bet this is one that’s been built with quality in mind.
