'La La Land,' with 14 Oscar nominations, ties record

By Stephanie Merry

“La La Land” was the big story from the nominations announcement for the 89th Academy Awards Tuesday morning, garnering 14 nominations, tying “Titanic” and “All About Eve” for the most of any movie. The musical’s nominations include best picture, best director for Damien Chazelle, leads Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, and two in one category, best song.

Other standouts include “Moonlight,” which is up for eight awards, including best picture, director (Barry Jenkins) and supporting awards for Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris. Tied with “Moonlight” is “Arrival,” which wasn’t singled out for acting, but is a contender for production design, cinematography and sound awards, not to mention best picture and director (Denis Villeneuve).

“Lion,” “Manchester by the Sea” and “Hacksaw Ridge” also had an impressive showing with six nominations a piece. Notably, Mel Gibson was nominated for his direction of “Hacksaw” after years as a Hollywood pariah. But he’ll have stiff competition in that crowded field.
The Oscars ceremony, which will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, airs Feb. 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
