    […] This one features great work by a lot of talented actors. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling lead the way with great performances. the acting, singing, and dancing are all great. The film was designed to use as many single-shot scenes as possible Chazelle took the time to work with the stars, understanding that neither had any extensive work in musicals under their belts. This patience created a number of wonderful moments that seem as seamless as the musicals of Rogers and Astaire. For their work, these stars both received Oscar nominations.

  18. Loving | Did You See That One? - February 24, 2017

    […] The acting in this film features a number of very good performances. Ruth Negga delivers a powerful and emotional role as Mildred Loving. Her acting seems to embody the emotional roller coaster that the whole family must have been experiencing. She also connected wonderfully with Joel Edgerton. His performance is slightly more subdued, but also plays into the emotional tones of the story. Together they make a convincing couple that you want to root for. Some of the other actors bring nice performances to the table as well. Will Dalton and Michael Shannon are just a couple of the actors who were featured throughout this one. Overall, this has some strong work from the cast. For her performance, Ruth Negga was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role. […]
