Nominations for the 89th annual Academy Awards will be announced Tuesday, Jan. 24. The awards show itself is scheduled for Feb. 26, 2017 and set to be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ nominations will be announced Tuesday morning via live stream, airing on the Oscars’ various digital platforms and on ABC’s Good Morning America.
The nominees for each of the 24 categories will be announced by a host of past Oscar winners, including Brie Larson (who won last year’s “Best Actress” award for Room), Jennifer Hudson (2007 “Best Supporting Actress”), Emmanuel Lubezki (multiple-Oscar winner for “Best Cinematography”), Jason Reitman, and Ken Watanabe.
La La Land, Moonlight, Fences, Manchester by the Sea, and Hell or High Water will likely walk away with more than one nomination—including “Best Picture”—based on both the popularity of the films as well as their multiple nominations at the Golden Globes earlier this month.
Expected contenders for this year’s “Best Actor” and “Best Actress” are mostly predictable, thanks to standout performances from Hollywood’s finest in the aforementioned buzziest films of the year.
Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), Denzel Washington (Fences), and Ryan Gosling (La La Land) are all safe bets for “Best Actor,” but Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals) and Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge) are also top contenders for the five spots.
As for “Best Actress,” Emma Stone (La La Land) is a clear favorite, as is Amy Adams for her role as alien-interpreter in Arrival and Natalie Portman for her convincing turn as first lady Jackie O. in Jackie. Other shortlisted names include Hollywood’s queen, Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins), Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures), and Isabelle Huppert (for the rape-revenge thriller Elle).
While nominations for the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice Awards, and SAG Awards may give a hint as to what we can expect from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ list, there are always at least a half-dozen major snubs and surprises that can be anticipated from any awards nominee list.
So tune in Tuesday morning at 8:18 a.m. ET to watch the official announcement live and Oscars.org for the complete list.
