2017 Oscar Nominations: LA LA LAND Ties Record With 14 Nods


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have announced the nominations for the 2017 Oscar awards. The leader of the pack is "La La Land" with 14 nods, tying the record for most Oscar nominations, which is currently held by "Titanic" and "All About Eve". The musical entered the Best Picture race alongside "Arrival", "Fences", "Hacksaw Ridge", "Hell or High Water", "Hidden Figures", "Lion", "Manchester by the Sea" and "Moonlight".

The next films to score the most nominations are "Moonlight" and "Arrival" with 8 nods each, followed by "Lion", "Manchester by the Sea" and "Hacksaw Ridge" with 6 each.

In the Best Director category, Mel Gibson scored his first nomination in 10 years. He was last nominated for "Braveheart" in 1995 and won. He is joined by Damien Chazelle ("La La Land"), Denis Villeneuve ("Arrival"), Barry Jenkins ("Moonlight") and Kenneth Lonergan ("Manchester by the Sea").

Amy Adams was not nominated for Best Actress in what is most likely the biggest snubs of the year. Adams' work in "Arrival" has been receiving recognition left and right, but not at the Oscars. The Academy instead chose to once again nominate Meryl Streep for "Florence Foster Jenkins", and some feel it might be in part because of her fiery speech at the Golden Globes and vocal opposition against Trump. On a positive note, Isabelle Huppert managed to score a nod for her amazing role in Paul Verhoeven's "Elle".

Other snubs include Martin Scorsese "Silence", which only received a nomination for Best Cinematography, and Clint Eastwood's "Sully". The latter similarly received a single nod for Best Sound Editing. Also, for those of you hoping that "Deadpool" would have a good Oscar run following the PGA and WGA recognition, unfortunately it didn't work out. The comic book movie received no nominations. In fact, comic book movies were poorly represented this year. Only "Suicide Squad" and "Doctor Strange" managed to get nominated, for Makeup and Visual Effects, respectively.

It was a huge day for companies, however, as Amazon managed to be the first to have one of their films, "Manchester by the Sea", nominated for Best Picture, beating Netflix to the punch. As for which studio won the most nominations, that would be Lionsgate with 26 nods, with "La La Land" and "Hell or High Water" among their Oscar lineup.

The 89th Academy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, and they will be broadcast on February 26th on ABC.
