Oscar nominees 2017

Here they are: Oscar Nominations 2017!

Past nominees Jennifer Hudson, Brie Larson, Emmanuel Lubezki, Jason Reitman and Ken Watanabe joined Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs to announce the nominations in a pre-taped video. I liked the mix of movies but I still missed a human touch since it was live.

La La Land received a whopping fourteen nominations. Previous films to also receive fourteen noms include Titanic and All About Eve. Meryl Streep makes history today! She earned her 20th nomination  for her work in Florence Foster Jenkins. Woooow, special congrats!

Jimmy Kimmel will host this year’s 89th Academy Awards ceremony. Can't wait for February 26!
