2017 oscar nominations

Well, here we are: the nominations for the 89th Annual Academy Awards are here. For some of you, this is one of the biggest days of the year. For others, it’s an excuse to look at the ground, stick your fingers in your ears, and hum. But one thing is for certain: we’re going to spend the next month talking all about these nominated films, right up until those little golden statuettes are handed out on February 26, 2017.

You can peruse the complete list of 2017 Oscar nominations below.

As expected, Damien Chazelle’s La La Land dominated the nominations with 14 nods, tying the record for most nominations for a single film. Also as expected, Moonlight was the second heavy hitter, walking away with eight nominations. Not quite as expected: Arrival locked down eight nominations, which is unusual for a science fiction film (although certainly well-earned). Also note quite as expected: the strong showing for Lion, which leapt ahead of several heavy-hitters with six nods.

In the second rung, you have Manchester by the Sea with six nominations and Hacksaw Ridge with five. Fences and Hell or High Water both nabbed four nominations each. And despite only landing three nominations, Hidden Figures scooped up one of the Best Picture slots, so it all evens out in the end.
