The 2017 Oscar nominations in 90 seconds

The nominations for Oscars 2017 have been announced and, as expected, it's La La Land vs Moonlight.

Nominations were announced via a live stream today by singer Jennifer Hudson, actors Brie Larson and Ken Watanabe, director Jason Reitman, Birdman and The Revenant cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, and Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs in a slight change from the usual format which saw contenders revealed in front of a live audience.

It's Damien Chazelle's musical love letter La La Land that leads this year's pack with 14 nominations, matching the record previously held by Titanic (1997) and All About Eve (1950).

Across the acting categories, it's Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), Isabelle Huppert (Elle), Natalie Portman (Jackie) and Fences actors Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in contention, while Moonlight director Barry Jenkins was thankfully included after a surprise omission at this year's Golden Globes.

Elsewhere, surprise additions include Michael Shannon – who was the best thing about Tom Ford's drama Nocturnal Animals – Viggo Mortensen for his understated performance in Captain Fantastic, and Best Picture recognition for Arrival and Hell or High Water (the latter of which also earned Blade Runner 2049 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve a hard-earned directing nomination).

Mel Gibson seems to have sewn up his Hollywood comeback with a directing nod for war drama Hacksaw Ridge, which received a total of six nominations including Best Actor for Andrew Garfield.

Sadly, perennial nominee Amy Adams was snubbed from this year's nominations despite showcasing her best work in 2016 releases Arrival and Nocturnal Animals; her "place" went to Loving actor Ruth Negga – herself a deserving inclusion – with Emma Stone (La La Land) and Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins) rounding out the Best Actress category.

One thing's for certain: it seems the voting shakeup has ensured the #OscarsSoWhite controversy is a thing of the past thanks to hugely deserved nominations for Davis, Washington, Negga and Moonlight's Naomie Harris, as well as Supporting Actor frontrunners Mahershala Ali and Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures).

The Oscars will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday 26 February. Jimmy Kimmel will present.
