“La La Land” has tied the record for the most Oscar nominations ever

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the 2017 Oscar nominations this morning, and, as expected, La La Land led the field with a record-tying 14 nods.

The film, a musical romance about two dreamers trying to make it in Hollywood, swept the Golden Globes earlier this month. (Hollywood loves nothing more than to honor films about itself.)

Though some have criticized La La Land for its dearth of non-white characters and for “whitesplaining” jazz, the Academy otherwise rewarded a relatively diverse slate of films. Seven people of color were nominated for acting awards—seven more than last year, when none were nominated, sparking the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag and forcing the Academy to take “historic action” to increase diversity.
