Awaited Influential OSCAR Awards 2017 Nominations Announced – Complete List

oscar awards 2017 nominations

The much-awaited list of nominations for the 89th Academy Awards are here. On, 24th January 2017, Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 89th Annual Academy Awards.

After winning six Golden Globes, ‘La La Land’ is leading the race by competing in an astounding 14 categories― tying the record previously set by “All About Eve” in 1950 and “Titanic” in 1997 – for the most in Academy Award history. Following 14 nominations of ‘La La Land’ are “Arrival” and “Moonlight” earning eight nominations each, followed by “Manchester by the Sea,” “Lion” and “Hacksaw Ridge,” each earning six nominations.

Oscar awards don’t look so White this year as they honour six black actors — a record — and including diverse films like “Moonlight,” “Fences” and “Hidden Figures” in the best picture race. Unexpectedly, two-time Oscar winner AR Rahman missed out on nominations in the Original Score category for the film ‘Pele: Birth of a Legend’. Indian-origin actor Dev Patel has also been nominated for the film ‘Lion’ for the Best Actor in the ‘Supporting Role’ category.

The 2017 Oscars are set to be held on February 26 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
