2017 Oscar Nominations Announced

2017 Oscar Nominations Announced

Guess which film festival premiered (or featured the North American premiere) four of the nine movies nominated for Best Picture. Yes, of course, the Telluride Film Festival, which screened “La La Land,” “Manchester by the Sea,” “Moonlight” and “Arrival.” The following is the list of the 2017 Oscar nominations compiled by Stephanie Marcus for the Huff Post.


On Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 89th Annual Academy Awards.

The Oscars are the final and biggest award show of the season, culminating in a massive display of all the glitz and glamour we’ve come to associate with Hollywood.

After cleaning up at the Golden Globes in January with seven awards, “La La Land” is in the lead with 14 nominations ― tying the record previously set by “All About Eve” in 1950 and “Titanic” in 1997.  Meanwhile, “Arrival” and “Moonlight” earned eight nominations each, followed by “Manchester by the Sea,” “Lion” and “Hacksaw Ridge,” each earning six nominations.
