With changes in the traditional way of reading out the nominations before reporters and publicists, the academy is all set to announce this year’s Oscar nominees, today. Regardless of the outcome, the 89th annual Academy awards nominations will be digitally streamed on Oscar.org or Oscar.com. And with two consecutive years of all-white nominees the Oscar will hopefully trend in a different directions this year. As Barry Jenkin’s ‘Moonlight, African American drama ‘Hidden Figures’ and Denzel Washington’s ‘Fences’ stand as strong contenders for the nominations, questions also stays on how many nomination this year’s favorite ‘La La Land’ clinches. It will be the first Oscars voted on since academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs ushered in new membership rules and added 683 new members as a way to diversify a predominantly white, male and elderly group, which now numbers 6,687.
