The ceremony, televised in the United States by ABC, will be produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. Television host Jimmy Kimmel will host the ceremony for the first time. Oscars 2017 nominations: One of the most anticipated events of the year has finally come. We bring all the nominations here.

And so the time is here. Nominations for the 89th annual Academy Awards will be announced bright and early tomorrow morning, and while I’ve been covering this year’s awards race since September, we’ve come to the moment of truth. Below, I’ve offered my predictions for the nominees in (almost) all of the categories. There are a number of different ways to tackle this—statistics, precedent, etc., but it’ll mostly come down to blind luck. I’ve used every piece of information I can glean to predict what I think will land on the Academy’s shortlist, but as always there will not doubt be a curveball or two. Keeps things interesting!

Check out my predictions below and check back tomorrow for a commentary piece on the nominees. The 89th Oscars will be held on February 26th and broadcast live on ABC, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

The official Oscar nominations will be announced on January 24, ahead of February’s Academy Awards. In the run-up to the announcement of the Academy’s nominees, film festivals throughout the year have been building up buzz for films, and a handful have emerged as frontrunners in the race for Oscars glory. It may all look like part of a self-mythologising process, but if a film gets a good reception in Cannes, Venice, Toronto, Berlin or London, that can’t be a bad thing for its awards chances. Since Venice Film Festival at the end of August, a lot of buzz has built up for these films…

Critically-acclaimed films like La La Land and Moonlight received a slew of nominations, and Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, and Natalie Portman were among the actors acknowledged with Oscar noms.
