2017 Oscar Nominations: Notes

So there we have it. La La Land joined Titanic and All About Eve as the most nominated film ever at the Oscars – with 14 nods. It was expected that La La Land would lead the pack, but a new record here marks them as the overwhelming favorite at the 89th Academy Awards next month. However, as usual, we have a few notable snubs and surprises – which will, of course, lead to our not-so-wise predictions about the winners in EVERY category. 

1

One by one, here we go:

BEST FILM

Snubs: Pablo Larrain’s biopic ‘Jackie’ was the only notable exclusion, as was, to a smaller extent, Martin Scorsese’s Silence – which hasn’t gone down well with any awards season voters. No other surprises, with dramatic heavyweights Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea expected to take on La La Land for the title. 

Prediction: La La Land

 

BEST DIRECTOR

Snubs: The surprise being Mel Gibson, back into the ‘club’ with Hacksaw Ridge, instead of Scorsese for Silence (which has totally been snubbed), Tom Ford for Nocturnal Animals and, most of all, Denzel Washington for Fences

Prediction: Damien Chazelle for La La Land

 

BEST ACTOR

Snubs: Tom Hanks for Sully. Adam Driver for Paterson was considered a favorite to win the Golden Globe, but his Oscar snub means that Ryan Gosling wins a surprising nomination for La La Land. Viggo Mortinsen for Captain Fantastic is a noble choice by the Academy. 

Prediction: Casey Affleck for Manchester by the Sea

 

BEST ACTRESS

Snubs: Amy Adams for Arrival and Taraji P. Henson for Hidden Figures
