Graham:'La La Land' leads Oscars; Amy Adams leads snubs

Graham:'La La Land' leads Oscars; Amy Adams leads snubs

The error was corrected nearly immediately, but some readers noted that Tom Hanks was on the list of best actor nominees for Sully, but he, in fact, was not nominated.

The 42-year-old looked in fine form indeed when she took to the stage in a white patterned blouse, skirt and high heels at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation's Conversations with Amy Adams event.

The acclaimed film Moonlight was also nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali and Actress for Naomie Harris.

With two brilliant performances, it could be that Adams competed against herself, leading the Academy to ignore both rather than having to decide between them.

ABC has apologized for incorrect information that was inadvertently posted this morning on the Oscars website as nominations were announced. ABC quickly identified and corrected the errors. "We apologize to the Academy, press, and fans for any confusion", ABC noted. She's also earned her status as a movie star with bona fide acting chops, as her recent turn in Paramount Pictures' "Arrival" proves. After starring in box office smash Arrival as well as Nocturnal Animals, Adams appeared destined to snag her sixth nomination-thereby tying Deborah Kerr and Glenn Close for the performer who'd gotten the most nominations ever without winning.

Chris Hogan plays big role in helping Patriots reach Super Bowl
He threw for just 1,048 yards as a senior at Penn Charter, handing off the ball extensively in the team's triple-option offense. It's the sixth time since the merger that the No. 1 scoring offense will face the No. 1 scoring defense in the Super Bowl .

Drug Lord 'El Chapo' Extradited By Mexico To US
Guzman has twice escaped from maximum-security Mexican prisons, most recently in 2015 via a hole in the floor of his cell shower. Despite his lawyers' efforts to fight extradition, he was taken to NY by the Drug Enforcement Administration on Thursday night.

Though Streep is an award season staple, many were actually surprised by her Oscar nomination. Or we could imagine that the jury wanted to avoid letting a handful of movies dominate the competition - and with La La Land taking home a record 14 nominations, the spot for "front runner in all categories" was already taken.

If this year's Oscars ceremony is as bad as the nominations process, then it promises to be even worse than last year's #Oscarssowhite debacle.

The Oscar nominations are out, with surprises and snubs all around. (And you can count on one hand the number of times a Pixar film hasn't gotten a best animated feature nomination and still have fingers left over.) Instead, the far lesser-known French-Swiss stop-motion animated film "My Life as a Zucchini" scored some recognition.

Hosted by late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, the 89th Academy Awards is set to air on February 26, 2017 on ABC.
