2017 Oscar Nominations Revealed!

The Academy have revealed the nominations for the 89th Oscars, and Damien Chazelle’s La La Land has scored a record 14 nods!

Best Picturescreen-shot-2017-01-24-at-14-16-52

La La Land, Arrival, Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea were on our Top 10 Films of 2016 list, so we’re delighted to see them recognised. Fences and Hidden Figures are terrifically-acted period dramas, and we’ve yet to see Lion or Hacksaw RidgeHell or High Water— we weren’t crazy about, but at least Deadpool isn’t nominated!
