Do you know why the “La La Land” screenplay has disappeared from the net, and do you have any idea when it may return?

I really don’t see what the fuss about La La Land’s screenplay is all about. It isn’t really all that great. I haven’t seen the film, so maybe the songs and choreography adds something. But just going off the screenplay, there isn’t really much to write home about. I feel like this is getting a nomination purely off the back of the songs, rather than what is in the screenplay.

I’m a little confused by reaction to Manchester by the Sea. Nothing really grabbed me.

They were joking on the radio this morning that it was about Wayne Rooney turning down the Chinese offer of a million a week. That sounds like a better movie.
