2017 Oscar Nominations Have Arrived, We Have The List Of Nominees Inside!

Published On January 24, 2017 » 645 Views» By Z-rowe »

It’s official, the Academy loves movies about Los Angeles. The ~modern musical~ La La Land picked up a total of 14 nominations, tying the record held by Titanic and All About Eve. It was nominated for best picture, best directing, best original screenplay, and probably best animated film somehow.

Moonlight and Arrival tied for second with a total of 8 nominations each. Denzel Washington, Ryan Gosling, Casey Affleck and Andrew Garfield all received best actor noms.

One surprise is that Tom Ford (director of Nocturnal Animals) did not receive a nomination for best directing or screenwriting. The film didn’t receive the best reviews from critics, but I think it was one of the better movies released in 2016. Another surprise is that the best part of the movie, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, did not get nominated for best supporting actor.

As you may remember, he won best supporting actor at the Golden Globes, so it’s strange to see his name missing from the list below.

Anyway, check it out for yourself. Do you see any surprises? Do you think the Academy got it right?
