OSCARS: Nominations Are In

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just announced the nominees for the Academy Awards. Unlike with previous years' press conference, a number of stars introduced the nominations in videos posted to social media and airing on ABC's Good Morning America.

La La Land got a total of 14 nominations, which ties it with Titanic and All About Eve for the most for a film in Academy Award history. In addition, Mel Gibson got himself back into the good graces of Hollywood, and six African-American themed films and nearly a dozen black actors and filmmakers were recognized.

The Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, air live on ABC on February 26th. Here are the nominations in the major categories.
