La La Land earns a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations and will take on Hidden Figures and Moonlight for Best Picture while Emma Stone competes against Natalie Portman for Best Actress

Oscars 2017: La La Land leads with 14 nominations

  • La La Land earned a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations on Tuesday morning
  • It was nominated in all major categories for which it was eligible, including Best Picture, Best Director ( Damien Chazelle ) and best Actor (Ryan Golsing)
  • Emma Stone will stake on Meryl Streep, Ruth Negga, Isabelle Hupert and Natalie Portman for Best Actress
  • Streep on Tuesday received her record 20th Oscar nomination 
  • Moonlight also had a strong showing, earning Best Picture and Director noms, as well as acting nods for Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali
  • Manchester By the Sea was nominated for Best Picture and Director too, while stars Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and Lucas Hedges all received nods  

La La Land looks set to dance its way to victory at the biggest night in Hollywood after picking up a record-tying 14 Oscars nominations for the 89th Academy Awards.

The smash-hit musical - led by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling - picked up the most nods on Tuesday, and tied the record set by Titanic and All About Eve.

The picture now has a chance to beat the record 11 Oscars that have been won by Ben-Hur, Titanic and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. 

And one year after the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, seven of the 20 actors nominated for awards were non-white. 

There was not a single non-white acting nominee in 2016.

The film's highly-commended stars also head up the Leading Actress and Leading Actor categories, with Emma going to battle with the likes of Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Natalie Portman (Jackie) for the Best Actress prize.

Streep on Tuesday received her record 20th Oscar nomination, 37 years after she was first nominated for her supporting turn in The Deer Hunter. 

The other two nominees in the Best Actress category were a bit of a surprise however, taking the spots that many thought would be filled by Annette Bening (20th Century Women) and Amy Adams (Arrival). 

Ruth Negga made the cut for her critically-lauded performance in Loving, and Golden Globe winner Isabelle Huppert was nominated for the French film Elle.

This is the first nomination for Huppert, who has long been considered by many to be one of the greatest actors of all time.

Rounding out the Best Actor category are Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge) and Viggo Mortnensen (Captain Fantastic). 

That category went exactly the way many predicted, leaving Tom Hanks out of the running for his performance in Sully. 

Meanwhile, this year's Best Supporting Actress category is stacked with five of the best actors working in Hollywood, with past Academy Award winners Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) and Nicole Kidman (Lion) leading the way. 

They will take on early favorite Viola Davis (Fences) and four-time nominee Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea) as well as newcomer Naomie Harris, who received her first ever nomination for Moonlight.

Jeff Bridges

Three of the men competing for Best Supporting Actor received their first nomination, including Mahershala Ali (Moonlight),  Dev Patel (Lion) and 20-year-old Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea), the youngest of this year's acting nominees.

That category is rounded out by past winner Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water) and past nominee Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals). 

Best Director meanwhile provided one big shock with Mel Gibson making his way in for his work on Hacksaw Ridge.

This year's nominees were announced by past Oscar winners Brie Larson and Jennifer Hudson and as well as past nominees Glenn Close and Ken Watanabe at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

La La Land has already been the biggest success of awards season, winning over critics and cinema-goers alike. 

The film swept the Golden Globe Awards with a record-breaking seven awards for Best Original Score Motion Picture, Best Original Song Motion Picture categories, Best Screenplay Motion Picture and Best Director Motion Picture.

Gosling and Stone each accepted the Best Performance by an Actor and Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy while the musical as a whole took the Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy award for a clean sweep of seven gongs.

It follows their success at this year's Critics' Choice Awards, in which it won eight of the 12 awards that it was put forward for while it is also up for a whopping 11 gongs at the BAFTAs

The critical darlings this year however have been Moonlight and Manchester By the Sea, which also had strong showings on Tuesday morning. 

Moonlight received eight nominations on Tuesday, as did Arrival.

Manchester received six nods, which all came in major categories including Picture, Director, Screenplay and Best Actor, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress.

The film was backed by Amazon Studios, and marks the first time that a streaming service has earned a nomination for Best Picture.

Hacksaw Ridge and Lion also received six nods. 

The Oscar hopefuls are chosen by the 6028 voting members of the Academy. Actors wanting to be part of the coveted group must have credited roles in at least three films while directors must have more than two screen credits to their names.

over the weekend of MLK i was at an event with young kids and single moms, one of the my old female friends from brooklyn who is not have her 6 years old in charter school, after i was done talking about Martin luther king i figure i take them out to eat, while in the car little boy asked me "who was martin Luther King" i  said your teachers did not tell you about him, he said no than he said can you tell me? at that point the mother is feeling real uncomfortable, so i started to tell him, he said wow, i want to fight for justice so every one can be happy. after i dropped them home, i asked her do you interact of what your kid is learning, she says yes she goes to every parents teachers meeting, than ask me since the father is locked up can i do her a favor by sitting down with the principle because she is sick and tired of showing up alone she needs a male figure, so i agreed, now in the black community, a white principle, the little boys teachers all blacks, so i asked the principle how come the kids are not being though about MLK she kept her head down at the point i knew i had her back against the wall' she asked me if i talked to the teachers, i said the teachers are teaching according to their guide lines, you are the one in charge that is why im talking to you so forget the middle man, she said she was sorry, she would do something that all that nonsense, 

now my point is black people talk trash reason why their kids are as dumb and ignorant is because they are not responsible, they are more concern about working 2 bullshit jobs than to be parents, its one thing those kids dont have a father and another for them not to learn about who they are they dont have no role model or self value so they join gangs and do dumb s***, the white folks know you people dont care so they are getting government money getting rich with your help and do not care do your home work majority of those white teachers do not live in your neighborhood, so when the last time any one question the curriculum of their kids teaching, negros need to stop walking around being cool and be responsible, i believe every one in the black community should be license before having kids, you mufuckers cannot stay together, sure love to f***, you women cannot take care of those little bastards but sure like to get pregnant well obtain a license that will held both people accountable to raise to those kids, other than that do not get pregnant you should be going to jail if you have an abortion, if you are going to have sex use a condom or take your birth control no negotiation

now i have to call out the idiots, niggers are the worse thing ever happen to black people, they have time to do everything nonsense, they would spend money to see any dumb movie but would not pack the theater and see the movies that can uplift them, its bad enough they do not read, they do not teach their kids about black history but cannot sit down and explain the story of the history, what happened to "Fences, Hidden figures, and moonlight" how many people support these movies, now the best story about our struggle in 2016 "Birth of a nation" did not make top five, come on negros appreciate your culture than those are the same people complaining about how they dont make black movies, or how come black movies dont get nominated, negros just like to complaint and wait for people to do for them like a baby, sad sad sad
