On Tuesday morning, the nominates for the 89th Academy Awards were announced. The front-runner is "La La Land," which tied "Titanic" for the most nominations, with 14. Damien Chazelle's crowd-pleasing Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling-led musical is in the running for best director, best original screenplay, best original score and two nominations for best original song — "City of Stars" and "Audition (The Fools Who Dream"). Stone and Gosling are each nominated for best actress and actor, respectively.

Here's a list of nominees in other notable categories.
