What to expect at the 89th academy awards

The 89th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), will honor the best films of 2016 and will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on February 26, 2017. During the ceremony, AMPAS will present Academy Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories. The ceremony, televised in the United States by ABC, will be produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd and directed by Glenn Weiss. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel will host the ceremony for the first time.


In related events, the Academy held its 8th Annual Governors Awards ceremony at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center on November 12, 2016. On February 11, 2017, in a ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, the Academy Scientific and Technical Awards were presented by hosts John Cho and Leslie Mann.

The nominees for the 89th Academy Awards were announced on January 24, 2017, via global live stream from the Academy. La La Land received the most nominations with a record-tying fourteen (1950's All About Eve and 1997's Titanic also achieved this distinction); Arrival and Moonlight came in second with eight apiece.

Governors Awards

The Academy held its eighth annual Governors Awards ceremony on November 12, 2016, during which the following awards were presented:

Academy Honorary Awards
  • Jackie Chan (Hong Kong martial artist, actor, director, producer and singer)
  • Anne V. Coates (British film editor)
  • Lynn Stalmaster (American casting director)
  • Frederick Wiseman (American filmmaker, documentarian and theatrical director)
  • Presenters and performers

    The following individuals will be presenting awards or performing musical numbers.

    Ceremony information

    Due to the mixed reception and low ratings of the previous year's ceremony, producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin declined to helm the upcoming festivities. Actor and comedian Chris Rock told Variety regarding if he would return to host, "Someone else will do it." Speaking about producing the show, Rock said, "Do they even have a producer yet? I'll produce." In November 2016, AMPAS recruited Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd as producers of the ceremony. "What a talented team," AMPAS president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said in a press release announcing the decision, "Mike and Jennifer have a great working relationship and a tremendous love and respect of film, and will surely draw from their vast experience to create an exceptional and unforgettable event for movie fans everywhere." On December 5, 2016, it was announced that Jimmy Kimmel would host the ceremony. Kimmel expressed that it was truly an honor and a thrill to be asked to host Academy Awards commenting “Mike and Jennifer have an excellent plan and their enthusiasm is infectious. I am honored to have been chosen to host the 89th and final Oscars.”

    Marking a change from the usual way of announcing nominees live at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, this year the Academy decided to release all the nominations through a global live stream on,, the Academy’s digital platforms, a satellite feed, and local broadcasters, including the ABC morning show Good Morning America.

    Box office performance of nominated films

    At the time of the nominations announcement on January 24, 2017, the combined gross of the nine Best Picture nominees at the North American box offices was $483.8 million, with an average of $53.8 million per film. When the nominations were announced, Arrival was the highest-grossing film among the Best Picture nominees with $95.7 million in domestic box office receipts. La La Land was the second-highest-grossing film with $90.5 million, followed by Hidden Figures ($85 million), Hacksaw Ridge ($65.5 million), Fences ($48.8 million), Manchester by the Sea ($39 million), Hell or High Water ($27 million), Lion ($16.5 million) and Moonlight ($15.8 million).

    Of the top 50 grossing movies of the year, 35 nominations went to 13 films on the list. Only Zootopia (3rd), Moana (15th), La La Land (45th) and Arrival (48th) were nominated for Best Picture, Best Animated Feature or any of the directing, acting or screenwriting awards. The other top 50 box office hits that earned nominations were Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (4th), The Jungle Book (5th), Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (8th), Suicide Squad (10th), Doctor Strange (11th), Star Trek Beyond (24th), Trolls (25th), Passengers (30th), and Sully (32nd).

    Diversity praise

    The previous two years, the awards had come under scrutiny for the lack of diversity among the nominees in major categories, which included no actors of color being nominated. After the nominees for the 89th Awards were announced on January 24, many media outlets noted the diversity of the nominations, which included a record-tying seven minority actors and a record-setting six black actors. For the first time in the Academy's history, each acting category has black actors, with three actresses being nominated in the Best Supporting category and three black screenwriters being nominated in the Best Adapted Screenplay category in the same year. One black director was also nominated, being only the fourth in Oscar history.

    Having previously been nominated for Doubt (2008) and The Help (2011), Viola Davis became the first African-American actress to garner three Academy Award nominations. Bradford Young became the first African-American to be nominated for Best Cinematography, while Joi McMillon became the first African-American to be nominated for Best Film Editing, since Hugh A. Robertson for Midnight Cowboy.

    Travel ban controversy

    Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who is nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film for The Salesman, was revealed to initially be unable to attend the ceremony due to President Donald Trump's immigration ban. He boycotted the event saying, "I have decided to not attend the Academy Awards ceremony alongside my fellow members of the cinematic community." The Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs reacted to the travel ban, saying, "America should always be not a barrier but a beacon and each and every one of us knows that there are some empty chairs in this room which has made academy artists into activists."
