Oscar Nominations by the Numbers: Lionsgate, Paramount Dominate the Field

Lionsgate titles rack up 26 nominations, while Paramount scores 17

Lionsgate continued to dominate Hollywood’s awards season on Tuesday as the nominations for the 89th Academy Awards were announced Tuesday morning.

Thanks to juggernaut “La La Land,” a musical which already set a new Golden Globes win record earlier this month, and Summit release “Hacksaw Ridge,” along with the technical awards for oil drilling disaster drama “Deepwater Horizon” and four for “Hell or High Water,” which Lionsgate partnered with CBS Films to release, the studio racked up a total of 26 Oscar nominations. “La La Land,” written and directed by Oscar winner Damien Chazelle (“Whiplash”) with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the lead roles, tied the Academy record for most nominations with 14, while Mel Gibson’s World War II drama was honored in six categories, and “Deepwater” is competing in two categories.

Paramount, which released critically acclaimed sci-fi drama “Arrival” and Denzel Washington’s stage play adaptation “Fences,” was the closest in Lionsgate’s dust with 17 total nominations. “Arrival” accounted for eight and “Fences” ended up with four, while other releases “Florence Foster Jenkins,” “13 Hours,” “Silence” and “Star Trek Beyond” also chipped in to the total count.

2017 marks a good year for streaming services that have branched out into feature filmmaking, too. “Manchester by the Sea” gave Amazon its first-ever Oscar nominations, with a total of six. Netflix, meanwhile, upped its 2016 tally by one with a total of three nominations: one each for short-subject documentaries “Extremis” and “The White Helmets,” as well as Ava DuVernay’s feature-length documentary “The 13th.”

A24 placed fourth in total nominations in 2016, and rose one spot to land in third, thanks to eight nominations for “Moonlight,” as well as one each for “20th Century Women” and “The Lobster.” On the flip side, Twentieth Century Fox led the pack last year with 20 nominations, but only managed three this year thanks to NASA drama “Hidden Figures,” which is competing in the Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay categories.
