La La Land is in the lead with 14 Oscar nominations including actor, actress, director and picture. That ties the record shared with All About Eve and Titanic. Close behind is Arrival and Moonlight each with eight nominations and also in the running is Ava DuVernay’s Netflix documentary 13th.

With Viola Davis, Dev Patel, Octavia Spencer, Denzel Washington, Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris and Ruth Negga nominated in the acting categories,the Oscars will definitely not be “so white”. I guess boycotting last year’s award show did pay off.
