The Oscar Nominations for 2017

The award season is coming to its end now that the Academy Awards aka the Oscar nominations for 2017 are announced. The 89th Academy Awards ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday the 26th of February 2017 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. It is the first time for Jimmy Kimmel to host this event.

Nowadays there are 24 categories in which Oscars can be won. Over the years categories have come and gone.

For those of you who are expecting for me to make any predictions. Not going to happen. I am not making any predictions because, to be honest, I don’t know half of the films that are nominated. And the one that should have been nominated isn’t. Yeah, I am not over the fact that Deadpool isn’t nominated in any way. But I shall let it go.

Without further lingering here is the complete list of all the nominees in the 24 categories.
