The movie “Spotlight,” about the Boston Globe’s investigation into sexual abuse among members of Catholic clergy, and the hit series “Empire,” are among the nominees.

We spoke with Stanley Tucci, who plays a crusading lawyer in “Spotlight,” and has appeared in the four “Hunger Games” franchise movies, including the three that were filmed mostly in Georgia.

Jennifer Lawrence, star of the locally filmed blockbuster “Mockingjay part 2” and who recently finished filming “Passengers” here, is up for “Joy.”

She and Fonda, by the way, were both part of a recent Hollywood Reporter roundtable. J-Law discussed, among other topics, how she got psyched up for the sex scene with Pratt in “Passengers.”

Will Smith is up for best actor for “Concussion.” He stars as as Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who first diagnosed chronic traumatic encephalopathy – or CTE – a football-related brain trauma.

Omalu attended a red-carpet screening of the movie in Atlanta. He said he was pleased at the awareness a major motion picture can bring about.

“Hollywood is a very powerful agent of change,” he said. “We are one American family. We are one love, one spirit, united by peace. In this country the impossible becomes possible.”
