Here Are All The 2017 Oscar Nominees—And The One That Breaks A Record

Every year, a few weeks before the big ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences short-lists Hollywood’s best films and actors of the year—and today’s unveiling was full of surprises. First, the Academy broke with its long-standing tradition of announcing nominations via press conference, electing instead to pre-tape packages starring former Oscar winners and nominees like Brie Larson and Glenn Close. Musical darling La La Land made history by scoring 14 nods, tying Titanic and All About Eve for being the most nominated film of all time.

And while last year’s lack of diversity spawned the widely controversial hashtag #OscarsSoWhite, this round acknowledged a slate of actors and actresses of color as well as stories featuring them, including Denzel Washington, Ruth Negga and Moonlight, Barry Jenkins’ poignant drama about a young gay African-American man’s coming-of-age. Perhaps most notable is the fact that Viola Davis snagged three nominations, breaking the record of nominations ever received by a black actress—a shockingly low number but one that is at least improving, albeit far too slowly. With Jimmy Kimmel emceeing the show, the 89th Academy Awards is poised to be one memorable night—catch all the action February 26 on ABC.
