Emma Stone trained as a dancer and singer to pull off her performance in La La Land and is one of the bright spots of the year doing it. She makes it look effortless but it is anything but. She is La La Land, the same way Audrey Hepburn is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s a tight race between Stone and Natalie Portman, whose incarnation of Jackie Kennedy is likewise brilliant. I’d add that Amy Adams is also in the running for Arrival, and Annette Bening for 20th Century Women. Thanks to JustJared for the pic:
