With 14 nods, La La Land garnered the most number of nominations in the 89th Academy Awards.

Starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, La La Land intertwines the worlds of Sebastian and Mia who are trying to find their place in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, La La Land is vying for Best Picture, Best Director for Damien Chazelle as well as the Best Actor trophy for Ryan and the Best Actress plum for Emma, among others.

This romance musical is currently being screened in Philippine cinemas.

Its 14 nods also allowed La La Land to tie with the record set by Titanic (1997) and All About Eve (1950) for having the most number of Oscar nominations in history.

Two movies earned the second-highest number of nominations with eight each. These are the sci-fi movie Arrival and the drama film Moonlight.

Arrival is vying for Best Director, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Production Design, and Editing, in addition to Best Picture.

In Arrival, when a mysterious spacecraft touches down across the globe, an elite team led by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers—and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.

Also starring Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker, Arrival is scheduled to open in Philippine cinemas on February 15, 2017.

The 89th Academy Awards will take place on February 26, 2017 (US time), at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. Jimmy Kimmel will serve as the host of the star-studded event.
