2017 Oscar Nominations: The Complete List

Oscars 2017

The votes have been counted and The Academy has officially whittled down 2016’s crème de la crème to select the nominees for the 89th Academy Awards.

Continuing its impressive victory lap, Damien Chazelle’s La La Land leads the pack with 14 nominations, after receiving the nod for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Costume Design, Film Editing, Original Score, Original Song (for both “City of Stars” and “Audition”), Production Design, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. It’s a haul that equals the record set by All About Eve (1950) and James Cameron’s Titanic (1997), and following its historic coup at this month’s Golden Globes ceremony, La La Land will be the one to beat on February 26th. Another record worth mentioning now belongs to the great Meryl Streep, who scooped up her 20th nomination for her nuanced performance in Florence Foster Jenkins.

Beyond that, Moonlight and Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival trail with eight nominations a piece, though the latter’s lead star, Amy Adams, is a notable absentee from the Best Actress category. Ditto for Martin Scorsese’s Silence, which finds itself in the running for Best Cinematography and little else.

In more positive news, thanks to the strong performances of Hidden Figures, Loving and the Denzel Washington-helmed Fences, #OscarsSoWhite won’t be rearing its ugly head for a third consecutive year. Without a single acting nominee of color in either 2015 or 2016, the lack of diversity in The Academy’s selections sparked widespread protests. Hollywood brass then went about implementing a radical shake-up to its pool of voters – in fact, of the 683 new invites issued last summer, 46 percent were women and 41 percent people of color.

Without further ado, here’s the complete list of candidates in the running for the 2017 Academy Awards, and though Rogue One, Doctor Strange and even Suicide Squad all made the cut, the Merc With a Mouth was shunned entirely. Looks like Deadpool‘s Oscar campaign really was wishful thinking after all.
