Nods for "La La Land"– including best picture, best actress for Emma Stone, best actor for Ryan Gosling and best director for Chazelle – matched the record hauls of 1997's "Titanic" and 1950's "All About Eve".Six black actors were nominated – including "Fences" stars Washington and Viola Davis, Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris of "Moonlight," Ruth Negga of "Loving" and Octavia Spencer of "Hidden Figures"."Arrival" tied "Moonlight" for the second most nominees with eight nods, yet its star Amy Adams was left out of the best actress category – as was Annette Bening for "20th Century Women".Best-actor favorite Casey Affleck ("Manchester by the Sea") was joined by Washington, Gosling, Garfield and Viggo Mortensen ("Captain Fantastic").
