Tonight is Hollywood's big night, with the 89th Oscars being broadcast live on ABC tonight, starting at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. We'll be watching the awards being handed out live and updating this full list of winners as the telecast goes on. Jimmy Kimmel hosts this year's Oscar telecast, with La La Land currently the front runner to take home many of the major awards.
Academy members from each of the 17 branches vote to determine the nominees in their respective categories - actors nominate actors, film editors nominate film editors, etc. In the Animated Feature Film and Foreign Language Film categories, nominees are selected by a vote of multi-branch screening committees. All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees. Active members of the Academy are eligible to vote for the winners in all 24 categories beginning Monday, February 13 through Tuesday, February 21.
Leading the way for this year's awards is the hit musical La La Land, which is coming off a record-breaking performance at the Golden Globes, where it won all seven awards it was nominated for. La La Land was nominated for a record-tying 14 awards, equaling the record set by a pair of Best Picture winners, All About Eve in 1950 and Titanic in 1997. La La Land is also the first musical with original music and story to receive a Best Picture nomination since All That Jazz (1979) and the second since Anchors Aweigh (1945).
