Oscar nominations: La La Land with 14; Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, and more!

01.24.2017

Welcome, fellow movie nerds, to part one of what is essentially the Super Bowl for Dweebs – the Oscar nominations. Of course, part two is the actual ceremony, wherein pasty folks like myself gather round’ the TV to watch beautiful people get showered in gold. That’s a month from now, however, and this moment is for the nominations. After months of speculating we will finally know who's that much closer to being a champ, and who’s now an official chump. NOW, after much rushing and out-of-context-posting-for-the-sake-of-speed here are the nominees!

LA LA LAND continues its dominance with a tie for most nominations EVER with 14 (tied with ALL ABOUT EVE and TITANIC). Other notables were, as predicted, MOONLIGHT, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, ARRIVAL and HACKSAW RIDGE. Not a whole lot of surprise nominees, the most shocking being PASSENGERS with two noms (Score and Production Design). A few of the more shocking snubs I noticed were SILENCE for virtually anything (sans Cinematography), nothing for Annette Bening in 20TH CENTURY WOMEN, no Best Song for SING STREET, and Tom Hanks not getting anything for SULLY. AND NO AMY ADAMS FOR ARRIVAL?! Also notable is the absense of DEADPOOL, which frankly was expected, but I at least thought we'd see a Makeup nomination.

I'll never understand the Academy awards...

I loved "Hidden Figures", but would not watch it over and over again. However, I've seen Deadpool about 5 times now and still, when I'm flipping channels and it's on HBO, I'll stop and watch. It has re-watchability. I still laugh at the gags. Isn't re-watchability part of the consideration? Perhaps not.

Can´t argue with most of the choices.

My favourite movies of the year (in order) are Arrival, Nocturnal Animals, Hell or High Water and Manchester by the sea (have´t had the opportunity to see Moonlight, La la land and Silence yet though). So my only gripe is that Nocturnal Animals didn´t get more love (great to se a nom for Michael Shannon though!)
Also my favourite foreign film was The Handmaiden, so would have liked to see it nominated. And even though I´m a Swede and don´t think A Man

Routine this year, only ??? was Amy Adams

I doesn't feel like there were any snubs this year. Sure, seeing Amy Adams nominated would've been nice, but overall this year is pretty much routine.
Great to see Mel Gibson recognized by the Academy. His nomination shows a moving forward from the past. He probably won't win, but this is truly great to see him recognized again in his career.
Those who say Finding Dory was snubbed....please. It was a decent sequel that re-hashed the same themes and plot points of the original.

Another boring year at the Academy...

Nothing exciting, nothing worth revisiting...

Also.. What is it with musicals and the Oscars?

Wtf... -_-

So the HFPA recognized him as the best suporting actor and Aron Taylor doesn't get a Nom?? Wtf man.. Ben Foster continues to be underrated and unappreciated. I really had hoped a little bit of more love for Rogue One...

Aaron has received very few nominations throughout the season, so his possibilities of getting nominated now were low.

I'm sure it's too much to ask for Mel Gibson to get Best Director or Kubo to pull an upset and beat out the overrated Zootopia. Really the only pleasant suprise in here is Isabelle Hubbert for Best Actress. Here's hoping she pulls out a major upset but in all likleyhood If it's anyone other than Stone it's likley to be Portman. Best Actor is certainly between Affleck and Denzel.

A lot of great movies this year. But La La
Land and Moonlight were far and away above the fray. La La La d is an instant classic. Fences was great as well.
I say La La Land deservedly sweeps the oscars.

Arrival? Denis Villeneuve dumbed down to a level movie critics could understand and only getting praise for the time traveling space octopus movie because they finally understood Prisoners.

Overall I don't see any major omissions. Good list of nominees.

Was anyone else somewhat underwhelmed by Arrival after all of the hype? I liked it and appreciated the story it told and the way they told it in a different way, but was not overly impressed by it... and also did not think Amy Adams acting was something that demanded a nomination. Just curious if I'm the only one feeling that way...

All hype. Bad moviemaking. Some critics confused convoluted storytelling with "cerebral "
I honestly think critics finally understood Prisoners and are trying to make up for it with the time traveling space octopus movie.

Well it was my favourite movie that I saw last year and everyone I know that have seen it all thought it was great. But sometimes you don´t just get the same feeling like most people do when you watch a movie. For me it also got very emotional because I have two small children. Maybe your in the same situation but I can understand how Arrival doesn´t make you feel as much if your not a parent.

NO NOMINATIONS FOR SWISS ARMY MAN? I think it should get a best pic, director, original screenplay (I mean...how many films can accomplish what this story did? Make you care about a crazy depressed guy and a dead person, and make an emotional fart scene), song, and score (though it was acapella which may disqualify it).

Really happy to see La La Land, Arrival, and Hell or High Water nominated for several categories, but what always surprises me are the snubs. The biggest snub being Amy Adams not being nominated for Arrival or Nocturnal Animals; she gave two of the best performances of the year and it's amazing that she was pushed aside so that the Academy could kiss Meryl Streep's ass again for the upteenth time.

But otherwise than that, it's a good varied selection of nominations this year.

Except for LA LA LAND, none of the movies nominated for Best Actress are also nominated for Best Picture. It's simple math.

Love seeing Mel get his due credit. Unfortunate that it's unlikely he'll ever win another Oscar. Upon coming across What Women Want on TV the other night, I was thinking that, had it not been for his antics, he may well have starred in or directed a dozen other blockbusters over the past decade.

Before the controversy, he was among the most successful people in Hollywood, both in front of and behind the camera. But since then his presence has been so downplayed that people have forgotten

Would be great to see him have a surge late in his career -- he really is an incredible talent.

I only care about two categories this year - supporting actor and original screenplay. Michael Shannon gave the beat performance of the year and the lobster was such a bizzare and original script. It's good to see mel gibson nominated for director, however. Hopefully this opens the door for him to do way more films. He's a phenomenal director.

About what I suspected, glad to see Mel Gibson finally getting some love and maybe Hollywood will let him back into the elite after this. At most I thought Deadpool might get adapted screenplay, I mean if Mad Max could be a contender than why not?

and when the f**k BEN FOSTER will get an Oscar nom ????

he stole the show in Hell or High water
Jeff Bridges was fantastic as usual, and Chris Pine was excellent too, but I think Foster deserves for a long time at least an nomination (should have get one for the messenger and the program), I think he is just the best and most underrated actor of his generation. Period. Cannot wait to see him playing himself in the french movie Rock and Roll directed by his pal Guillaume Canet...

Still pretty stunned that The Founder, Silence, Gold and Live by Night are all being shut out of awards season this year. Maybe the industry is trying to send a message about Oscar bait films released at the end of the year. Or maybe all those movies are really that bad...

A movie doesn't have to be bad in order to not be nominated.

It's so disappointing that Live By Night didn't do better than it should have. Excellent film that's another strong showing of Affleck's directing, writing, and acting skills.

Interesting to see Kubo And The Two Strings get a best visual effects nom as well as best animated film.

I had forgotten that stop-motion films were eligible for Best Visual Effects.

some huge snubs IMHO

- Amy Adams (nocturnal animals)
- Michael Keaton (the founder)
- tom hanks (sully)
free state of jones - everybody wants some - the light between oceans should have get some spotlight too ... BUT a good choice this year... even if I do not understand the hype about Isabelle Hupert...

I would say Amy Adams more for Arrival than Nocturnal Animals. Her character was centered more for the story to work and for us to care about the reveal that much more as well.

The Oscars have a rule against actors being nominated twice in the same category. Amy was forced to choose to campaign herself for just 1 movie and she (or maybe someone else?) chose ARRIVAL.

I know we're all movie buffs here

But it would help to include in your article for what movies they are being nominated for next to the actors names.

When I initially scanned the article and saw just 'Affleck' under BEST ACTOR, I thought "Wow, finally someone liked Live By Night!". Somehow forgot his brother was in an incredible film that's likely going to win him an Oscar to go along with his Golden Globe
