The Academy announced the 2017's Oscar nominations, and there are a few surprises: Meryl Streep and Michael Shannon among them. "La La Land" is the most nominated movie. Let's summarize all the nominations.

'La La Land' ties a record

"La La Land" is still the major contender: after winning a record-breaking number of Golden Globes, the Damien Chazelle picture has been nominated for 14 #Academy Awards: a huge number. Among the most relevant, we can find best actor for Ryan Gosling's performance, best actress for Emma Stone, best direction for Damien Chapelle (who will likely win), two nomination for best song for "City of Stars" and "Audition," best original screenplay, and best picture.

It will win an incredible amount of prizes, that's for sure.

'Arrival' and 'Moonlight' shine

After the "La La Land"'s exploit, next on the list are Villeneuve's "Arrival" and Jenkins' "Moonlight." The coming-of-age story of Chiron obtained 8 nominations: best picture, best supporting actor for Mahershala Ali, best supporting actress for Naomie Harris, best direction for Barry Jenkins, best music, best cinematography, best film editing, and best adapted screenplay. "Arrival" didn't get the best actress nomination, but it is still a major nominee, with 8 nominations: best picture, best direction, best cinematography, and so on.

'Lion' and 'Manchester by the Sea' are still in the game

Nobody could have predicted the rise of "Lion." The first Garth Davis movie obtained six nominations, with Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman both nominated, and the movie in the best picture race.

It's clearly a success for the Weinstein Company. Lonergan's "Manchester by the Sea" is another winner in this day of nominations: Casey Affleck got a nod and he will likely win, the young Lucas Hedges is in contention for best supporting actor, and Michelle Williams got her fifth Academy Award nomination. The movie is also nominated for best picture, best adapted screenplay, and best direction.

Mel Gibson and Meryl Streep got a nomination as well, the former for direction, the latter for her role in "Florence Foster Jenkins." They were both surprises, along with the nomination for Michael Shannon's "Nocturnal Animals" role. This is it: we will have to wait until the 26th of February in order to find out who wins. #Cinema #Advertising
