La La Land continues to be the frontrunner, but its a competitive field of song and score nominees that rounds out the 89th Academy Awards. Receiving nominations for two songs — “City of Stars” and “Audition” — it also nabbed a Best Score acknowledgement, for a total of three in the music categories.

With 14 total nominations, including Best Picture, La La Land ties with Titanic and All About Eve for most nominations ever. Only 10 musicals have ever won the Best Picture Oscar, the most recent being the 2002 release Chicago.

The 89th Academy Awards take place Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center. For a complete list of nominees, click here.
