Hollywood 2 Holland

2017 Oscar Nominations Announced

January 24, 2017

The 2016 Oscar nominations were announced earlier today, and even though Hollywood may be half a world away from Holland, its status as the epicenter of the movie industry, where the vast majority of films shown around the world are produced, means interest in both the nominations and winners is far reaching. Read on to find out the nominees for the 89th annual Academy Awards to be handed out during the telecast on Sunday 26th February 2017.

Some highlights:

- La La Land with its 14 nods, tied the record for the most nominations ever. Twice before has a film received 14 nominations – All About Eve (1950) and Titanic (1997).

- Meryl Streep extends her lead as the most nominated actor/actress of all time with her 20th nod (Best Actress for Florence Foster Jenkins).

- Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall, Basic Instinct, RoboCop), who recently won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Film for the French movie Elle, was surprisingly not nominated for an Oscar in the same category. Isabelle Huppert, however, was nominated for Best Actress for her role in the film.

- Amazon has now established itself successfully in the motion picture industry, becoming the first streaming service to receive Oscar nominations in major categories with its 6 nods for Manchester By The Sea (including one for Best Picture).
