2017 Oscar Nominations: Complete List

Oscars

While Hollywood pretends to wet itself over “La La Land,” a musical without a single tune you can remember, much less hum, the system prepares for the fallout from Amazon making Oscar history with its Best Picture Nominee “Manchester By The Sea.”

In a year when the field for Best Picture includes clunkers such as “Hidden Figures” and “Arrival” you know what you’re getting.

Is this the year that the Oscars go African American? You bet. The biggest surprise would be if Isabelle Huppert (deservingly) wins the Lead Actress award for her tremendous performance in Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle.”
