The 89th Academy Award nominations were announced on January 24, 2017.  The awards are to be presented on February 26, 2016.  La La Land leads the nominations with 14 nominations which ties both Titanic (1997) and All About Eve (1950).  The film 13 Hours was nominated for Best Sound Mixing but was disqualified at the last moment for lobbying going against Academy rules.  Moonlight took home the big prize after an accidental announcement of La La Land.  For BasementRejects reviews of the films below, click the link under the BasementRejects Review link under the picture.

Follow me on Twitter @JPRoscoe76! Loves all things pop-culture especially if it has a bit of a counter-culture twist. Plays video games (basically from the start when a neighbor brought home an Atari 2600), comic loving (for almost 30 years), and a true critic of movies. Enjoys the art house but also isn't afraid to let in one or two popular movies at the same time.
