89th Academy Awards

Nominations Thu 24.Jan.17 • Awards Sun 26.Feb.17

Rich's comments: As usual, there are a couple of glaring snubs here and there in the Academy's nominations list. The racial balance is much stronger this year, although that comes at the expense of films that deserved more attention (most notably Jackie and Nocturnal Animals). The tightest category was Best Actress, in which Amy Adams and Annette Bening were missing; then Emma Stone went on to emerge victorious against the godlike genius of Isabelle Huppert. As for the ceremony, well this one will keep people talking for years due to the unbelievable chaos that unfolded in the final 10 minutes, as Moonlight's seriously important Best Picture upset was upstaged by an envelope-swapping error. Hopefully history will note its significance, rather than focussing on that distracted accountant.
