Oscars 2017: Printable Ballot, Full Nominees List For 89th Academy Awards Sunday

Similar so-called boycotts have also trailed the Broadway sensation "Hamilton" and 2016's top box-office hit, the "Star Wars" spinoff "Rogue One". Last year's Oscars event was infamous for the noticeable absence of diversity in nominations, but this time around, there are quite a few deserved nominations for actors of color.

Jimmy Kimmel has been handed the keys to the auto for the first time - NOT to be confused with Jimmy Fallon, who hosted the Golden Globes.

CBC News will be following the events as they unfold on our live blog, starting at 6 p.m. ET.

When: ABC's red carpet coverage starts at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26; the ceremony starts at 5:30 p.m. With eight nominations, it is seen as the biggest threat to La La Land but the question remains is it just a little too hard-hitting to win in this feelgood era? It has divided audiences, some of whom see it as charming and escapist, while others have criticized it as a lackluster musical with leads that lack chemistry and singing ability.

"The way I think of what happened last year and this year, which we are framing as a response to it, is I think in years past, if someone had said "I have this movie that is about a poor black boy growing up in the projects with a mom addicted to drugs and who is struggling with his sexuality", maybe it would have been easier for someone to say "You know what, I know what that is".

USA immigration authorities are barring entry to a 21-year-old Syrian cinematographer who worked on the documentary short nominee "The White Helmets", about the nation's civil war. It also surprised at the Box Office, and that's one of the only things Hollywood loves more than stories about itself.

As of Friday, most of the best bets seemed to be on "La La Land".

But, this will be the year of La La Land.

Unfortunately for leading man Ryan Gosling, he may not complete the big four. Natalie Portman was expected to be her major competition for her exquisite performance as Jacqueline Kennedy in "Jackie".

But love it or hate it, La La Land's success rests in large part on Stone's slender shoulders. Casey Affleck's lauded performance earned him a best actor nomination for "Manchester by the Sea" but the acclaim brought renewed attention to a pair of sexual harassment suits he settled from a previous film. It may be the best year in modern history for it. Denzel Washington's Fences, Moonlight, Hidden Figures all deserve the attention they are getting as works of art.

Seven actors are celebrating their first nominations this year: Lion's Dev Patel, Loving's Ruth Negga, Moonlight's Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali, Manchester by the Sea's Lucas Hedges, Hacksaw Ridge's Andrew Garfield and Elle's Isabelle Huppert.

Adapted Screenplay: Barry Jenkins, "Moonlight".

In a way, the heightened stakes is a dream scenario for the Oscars, which has struggled with viewership and even tweaked the best picture category in 2011 to allow for more contenders and, ostensibly, the interest of their fans. He won in 2012 for A Separation.
