It’s time to get ready for another night of classic Hollywood glamour on the red carpet- the 89th annual Oscars Ceremony are on their way.
Today the list of nominated films, directors, actors and actresses and so on for this year's Academy Awards were released, with some new world records being set in the process.
La La Land looks likely to be the film to beat this year, having scored a record-equalling 14 nominations, including best picture.
The musical, which stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone who have both been nominated for awards for best actor and actress respectively, already earned a record earlier this month for Most Golden Globes Awards won by a film.
It's 14 Academy Award nominations means it now shares the record for Most Oscar Nominations for a film with All About Eve and Titanic, which both received the same amount of nods in 1951 and 1998 respectively.
The 14 categories the motion picture are up for include:
- Best Actor in a Leading Role
- Best Actress in a Leading Role
- Best Cinematography
- Best Costume Design
- Best Director
- Best Film Editing
- Best Music (Original Score)
- Music Original Song for “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” and “City of Stars”
- Best Production Design
- Best Sound Editing
- Best Sound Mixing
- Best Writing (Original Screenplay)
- Best Picture
Meanwhile, Meryl Streep has extended her record for Most Oscar nominations for an actress, after today receiving yet another nomination, this time for her lead role in the comedy drama Florence Foster Jenkins.
Often referred to as “the best actress of her generation”, today's news means she has now been nominated for an Oscar an incredible 20 times over the course of her highly successful acting career which now spans five decades.
First entering the film industry in 1971, she picked up her first Academy Award nomination seven years later, with her performance in the powerful war drama The Deer Hunter earning her a nod in the Best Supporting Actress category.
She has managed to win a coveted gold statuette on three occasions - taking Best Supporting Actress for Kramer vs. Kramer in 1979, and Best Actress for Sophie's Choice in 1982 and more recently in 2011 for The Iron Lady .
Streep also currently holds the record for Most Golden Globe nominations for an actress with 30 and Most Golden Globe Awards, having won on eight separate occasions.
With a month remaining until this year's Oscars take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on February 26, we wish all the nominated talent the very best of luck.
