The 89th annual Academy Award nominations were announced Tuesday morning to the delight of movie fans everywhere. Leading the way with 13 nominations was the hit film La La Land followed by Moonlight with eight nominations and Arrival with seven.

Animated hits Zootopia, Moana and Kubo and the Two Strings got nominated for best-animated feature film, which feature several Sheridan animation graduates, including David Stodolny, a character animator, and Mitchell Counsell, a character technical director. Zootopia took home the Golden Globe this year for best-animated feature, which featured 12 Sheridan graduates.

There were only two controversial omissions from this year’s nominations โ€” Amy Adams for her amazing performance in Arrival and Ryan Reynolds for Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay for Deadpool, which is the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time.

 

Ryan Reynolds took to twitter following the nominations and the snub of his groundbreaking film,ย Deadpool.

 

The 89th annual Academy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and can be seen Feb 26 at 8 p.m.

About Gregory Chisholm 12 Articles
My name is Greg Chisholm. I am an aspiring movie critic and entertainment reporter. Before deciding to become a journalist, I was a real estate developer. By chance, I won a radio contest to go see the premiere of Anchorman 2. A friend at the time had a start up website reviewing video games, known as 3gem.ca (now NXTgem). He asked me if I wanted to try my hands at a review and I fell in love with it. I ended up applying to journalism at Sheridan College, taking an unpaid internship at Tribute.ca where I got a real taste of what working as an entertainment reporter was like. Since then I have been working hard to complete my course and work full time in as a journalist. I am currently running my own blog entitled "The Super Geek" where I write reviews and track news for movies and cover news related to anything I enjoy as well as entertainment news.
