Everything you need to know about Atlanta-filmed "Baby Driver," up for three Oscars

Atlanta-filmed "Baby Driver" is up for three Academy Awards, in the categories of film editing, sound editing and sound mixing.

It's a safe bet that Kevin Spacey, who played the conniving crime boss calling the shots with Baby (Ansel Elgort) at the wheel, won't be attending the Oscars but things are otherwise celebratory this morning.


The movie, with Lily James as a sweet-natured waitress and Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez, Jon Bernthal and Jamie Foxx as the stick-up crew, was set in Atlanta and we wrote about it since production started.
