La La Land leads field with 14 nominations.


La La Land will be the one to beat at this year's Oscars, having scored a record-equalling 14 nominations.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are up for best actor and actress for their roles in the modern musical romance.

It is also one of nine films up for the best picture award.
Sci-fi film Arrival and coming-of-age drama Moonlight have eight nominations each, with the latter's citations including a supporting actress nod for Britain's Naomie Harris.

The actress, who plays Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond films, said she was "over the moon" and "couldn't be more thrilled".

"Moonlight is touching many hearts at a time when people are seeking compassion and connection in the world," she continued in a statement.

Other British contenders include Dev Patel, up for best supporting actor for Lion, and musician Sting, nominated for best song.

Slumdog Millionaire star Patel told the BBC it felt "amazing" to receive his first Oscar nomination.
