Transcript for 'La La Land' Nominated for 11 BAFTA Awards
We're going to begin with award season moving along right now and the British academy awards have just announced their nominations. Late last night for the bafta awards. That's their version of the oscars and looks like "La la land" is on a major role. The musical is up for 11 awards including best director, best film, best actor and best actress. The news coming two days after a record seven golden globes, the film winning every single category in which it was nominated. Both a rival "Nocturnal animals" also up there nominated for nine bafta awards. "Manchester by the sea" up for six and get ready for a "La la land" slide this award season. Looks like it will be the case. Yeah. Have you seen it? How many in the audience, have you seen "La la land." Have you all seen it? Not yet? It's really -- it's special. It's unique. There's nothing like it out there. It's on my list. On my list. All right. All right. I'll fill you in. It's fabulous. Also, in music news this morning, it's been 30 years since u2 released their number one album "The Joshua tree" and in celebration of that, the band hitting the road for a worldwide stadium tour. Fans of the hit record will have a chance to see u2 play each and every song on that album from start to finish. Who here loved "Joshua tree"? I mean, when I first had my, you know, when you're first able to drink, 21 years old there was a -- yes, at 21, not 18. At 21 there was a bar and they would play -- they had it in the jukebox and that was like my go to hit, that anthem. I still haven't found what I'm looking for, now with you, I have. I'm hearing that and I'm thinking that's 30 years ago. I know. It goes to show when you have great music it's absolutely timeless. Absolutely. Stands out. Well, and you're going to be able to see it live in action. The band also promising an amazing roster of supporting acts including Mumford and son, one republic and the lumineers kicking off in Vancouver may 12th and North American tickets go on sale January 17th. That's coming right up. Still, one of my favorite -- yeah. One of my favorite all-time mornings here when they were at Fordham university. We were out there with u2. It was -- it was amazing. Yeah. Terrific band and he's a great guy. So giving in spirit and then finally, this was kind of funny. Ben Affleck had a big night, of course, the golden globes Sunday taking home the award for best actor for his role in "Manchester by the sea." But turns out Casey forgot to thank somebody. His big brother, Ben Affleck so Ben was on Jimmy Kimmel last night when the host pointed out the snub and Ben responded as necib blink would do by revealing childhood secrets about his brother. Take a look. This would be the very first time someone would win an Oscar who didn't brush his teeth from ages 10 to 14. This would be the very first person to win an academy award who once asked his brother if "Back to the future" was a true story. Siblings. Nobody can get you like a sibling. Ouch. Though one. Not to worry, Casey does have another chance to show his gratitude if he wins that bafta award and that is "Pop news," everybody. Thank you, Lara.
