La La Landslide: 2017 Oscar Nominations Owned by La La Land as Moonlight & Arrival Tie for Second

Share

The 2017 Academy Awards Nominations have been revealed and La La Land is on track to follow-up it’s impressive Golden Globes haul as it rakes in a whopping 14 nominations. Moonlight and Arrival tied for second place with 8 each. Check out the full list of nominees here.

The ceremonies will air February 26th and are to be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. It’s looking likely that we could be in for another record-breaking evening if La La Land’s clean-up of the Globes was any indication. Personally my favorite Best Picture nominee is Hell or High Water and I’m thrilled that Jeff Bridges was nominated for his performance even though the favorite has to be Mahershala Ali from Moonlight.

It’s a crime that Sausage Party, the year’s funniest movie, wasn’t included in the Animation category. It should have landed a nod over ‘The Red Turtle’ or ‘My Life as a Zucchini’ . Wouldn’t it have been amazing if Sausage Party was included in this set?! They blew a hilarious opportunity there.

Overall this is a very solid lineup of nominations, but I’m expecting a La La Landslide… And you probably should be too.
