The 2017 Academy Award Nominations (Updated)

The 2017 Academy Award Nominations (Updated)

Here it is, movie snobs: the one day a year we want to wake up early to read a list of movie titles. And with good reason, because the 89th Academy Awards ceremony is just over a month away (on February 26, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel), so having a list of nominees to speculate upon is certainly a worthy list. And we’re going to be dishing about it right here, right now, as they’re announced, starting at 8:18 a.m. ET/5:18 a.m. PT Tuesday morning.

There are plenty of ways to find out which films, screenplays, actors, and other behind-the-scenes personnel are up for Oscars this year. You can watch the announcements on Good Morning America or on the Academy’s website (presented by Brie Larson, Jennifer Hudson, Emmanuel Lubezki, Jason Reitman, Ken Watanabe, other previous winners, and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs), or you could simply follow along with us—we’ll be updating this post as nominees are announced.

Until then, check out the award categories, and once the announcements begin, stick with us, and this post specifically, since we’ll be updating it live as the nominees are announced and taking bets on how many times La La Land gets a hat-tip.
