Just In: The 2017 Oscar Nominations

by Kasey Caminiti | January 24, 2017 2:50 pm

The 89th Academy Awards[1] nominations have been announced via live-stream, beginning today, Tuesday morning at 5:18am PST – a point of contention from film buffs on the West Coast. Alas, art as revered as 2017’s selection might be worth the sacrifice of a good night’s rest. This year’s nominations mark the industry’s most diverse pool of candidates to date, not to mention the level of artistry[2] from this year’s performances.

The awards themselves will continue to be the season’s most coveted invitation. Piper-Heidsieck returns as the sole Champagne to be served during the ceremony and the Governors Ball, the award show’s official after-party, and the house will be serving an exclusive limited-edition magnum bottle for all guests to enjoy. Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the first time ever, the Academy Awards will air live on ABC Sunday, February 26th at 5:30 p.m. PST/8:30 p.m. EST. Below, this year’s exciting and momentous list of nominees. Cheers!
