Oscar hopefuls “La La Land,” “Moana” and “Zooptopia” were announced Wednesday as recipients of the sixth annual Made in Hollywood Honors, recognizing locally produced films.
The films will be recognized during a Feb. 16 ceremony hosted by City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell at the Heart of Hollywood Terrace on Vine Street, at the former site of the Brown Derby.
“La La Land” has a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations, including a nod for best picture. “Moana” and “Zooptopia” are both nominated for best animated feature.
Organizers noted that since the honors were established in 2011, five of the honorees have gone on to win Oscars for either best picture or best animated feature — “The Artist,” “Argo,” “Frozen,” “Big Hero 6” and “Inside Out.”
