The 89th Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday and Oscar voters showered the neo-musical “La La Land” with 14 nominations, a tie with “Titanic” and “All About Eve” for the most in Academy Award history. But the academy also moved past two #OscarsSoWhite years by honoring six black actors — a record — and including diverse films like “Moonlight,” “Fences” and “Hidden Figures” in the best picture race.

In 2015, there was surprise when “Selma” director Ava DuVernay was not nominated. This year, DuVernay’s film “13th” was nominated for best documentary feature, along with “Fire at Sea,” “I Am Not Your Negro,” “Life Animated,” and “O.J.: Made in America.”

Jimmy Kimmel will host the awards on February 26.
