The nominations for the 89th Academy Awards are in, and like every year, the list contains a few surprises. It was a big morning for “La La Land.” The acclaimed movie starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone was honored with 14 nominations. Both Gosling and Stone nabbed nominations for their leading roles in the film, and director Damien Chazelle was recognized in the directing category. The musical, which takes place in Los Angeles, also earned nods in the original score and original song categories.
With 14 nominations, “La La Land” now ties two other films, “All About Eve” — the 1950 film starring Bette Davis — and “Titanic” for the most nominations ever, according to The Associated Press.
Both “Arrival,” the sci-fi thriller starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, and “Moonlight,” a coming of age drama set in Miami, both scored a total of eight nominations. “Lion” and “Manchester by the Sea” each were nominated for six awards and “Fences” had four nominations.
