The Critics' Choice Awards 2017 Nominations Are In

Yes, we're only just in December, but awards season is already gearing up, and with the Critics' Choice Awards 2017 just over a week away (confusingly, this time they'll be held on December 11 2016...), the nominations have been revealed.

Perhaps our first hint at which films will win big at the Oscars early next year, it's certainly good news for Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling's stunning musical La La Land - the film, which was directed by Whiplash's Damien Chazelle, has scooped 12 nods altogether, including major categories like Best Actor and Actress, Best Picture and Best Director.

Festival favourites Arrival and Moonlight have both gained 10 nominations apiece, and will both compete in the Best Picture category against Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Lion, Loving, Manchester by the Sea and Sully.

In the Best Actress category, Emma Stone is up against the likes of Amy Adams (for Arrival), Natalie Portman (Jackie) and Ruth Negga (nominated for Loving).
