The Academy Awards are coming soon, on February 26th! La La Land, directed by Damien Chazelle was showered with nominations for 14 different awards.

The Oscars this year has 157 nominations for the 34 awards that will be given out! We can’t wait to see how Jimmy Kimmel does as the host for the 89th Oscars.
