The 89th Academy Awards, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, kick off at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.
The movie with the most honors this year is Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, with 14 nominations. The musical is competing for Best Picture opposite eight-time nominees Arrival and Moonlight.
As expected, the frothy musical La La Land dominated the EE British Academy Film Awards, winning in almost every major category including Best Film, Director (Damien Chazelle), Lead Actress (Emma Stone), Cinematography (Linus Sandgren) and Original Music (Justin Hurwitz).
The other big winner at the 70th annual BAFTAs ceremony, hosted by Stephen Fry, is Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake as Best British Film.
In a night chock-full of political commentary, I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore took the top prize at Saturday’s Sundance Film Festival awards, while Tarik Saleh‘s The Nile Hilton Incident nabbed the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize in the dramatic categories.
On the documentary front, Dan Sickles and Antonio Santini‘s Dina won the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize, while Feras Fayyad‘s Last Men in Aleppo scored the World Cinema prize, respectively.
AMPAS have finally revealed their picks for the very best of cinema in 2016, and La La Land, unsurprisingly, led the field with 14 nominations followed by eight for Moonlight and Arrival, seven for Lion, six for Manchester by the Sea and Hacksaw Ridge, four for Fences and Hell or High Water, and three for Jackie and Hidden Figures.
The 2017 Oscar nominations for the 24 categories will be announced Tuesday, January 24, 2017 beginning at 5:18 a.m. PST/8:18 a.m. EST/1:18 p.m. GMT/9:18 p.m. CST. You can watch the livestream of the nominations announcement here at Film Cutting.
The winners of the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards have been announced last night in Beverly Hills, California. Damien Chazelle’s hit musical La La Land took home every single award it was nominated for, setting a new record for the most Golden Globes won by a single film. Glad to see Hollywood loves movies about Hollywood.
Nominees for the 23rd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced on Wednesday morning at the Pacific Design Center’s SilverScreen Theater in West Hollywood.
