From ‘La La Land’ to ‘Hidden Figures’, The 2017 Oscar Nominations

And we’re here finally. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have released the nominations for the 89th Academy Awards. As seen with other award ceremonies, La La Land leads the race again securing 14 nominations. It was followed by Arrival and Moonlight which secured 6 nominations each.

Martin Scorsese‘s much-awaited Silence could only score one nomination. At the Golden GlobesAaron Taylor-Johnson won the Best Supporting Actor for his work in Nocturnal Animals. Many felt it was Michael Shannon who deserved a nod for his role in the same film, and it looks like the Academy voters agreed with them.

In other news, while La La Land, tied with Titanic and Ben-Hur (the Charles Heston one of course) for the most number of nominations, Meryl Streep received her 20th Oscar nomination. She had earlier won the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes.

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the 89th Academy Awards will be held on February 26th, broadcast live on ABC.
