Interesting Facts About This Year's Oscars

The Oscars are this Sunday and here are some interesting facts about this year's show:

 "Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins could become the first African American to win Best Director.  Only three other black filmmakers have been nominated.

 If "O.J.: Made in America" wins Best Documentary, it will become the longest movie to win an Academy Award.  It's 467 minutes long. 

"La La Land" is nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars. It could set a new record for the most Oscar wins.  The current record is 11, and two movies have done that:  "The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" and the original "Ben-Hur".

The Oscar ceremony costs $42.8 million to put on. In fact, even the 16,500-square-foot red carpet costs $30,000.
