On Tuesday morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences broke with the long-standing tradition of hosting a press conference to announce Oscar nominations, and opted instead for pre-taped packages starring former Oscar winners and nominees including Brie Larson, Glenn Close, Guillermo del Toro, and Jennifer Hudson, among others, to honor this year's class.

La La Land unsurprisingly led the pack—after a cinching a historic seven Golden Globes—and, as predicted, films like Moonlight, Fences, and Manchester by the Sea earned several nods.

The 2016 Oscars were marred with controversy over its lack of diversity, sparking the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. In a pleasant change, and a reflection of new rules that allowed for more inclusive membership ranks this year, the Academy highlighted a more diverse group for 2017, including first-time nominees–and W magazine February cover stars– Ruth Negga and Mahershala Ali (Loving and Moonlight, respectively,) Viola Davis and Dev Patel of Lion, who was also featured in W's Best Performances portfolio.

The 2017 Oscars—hosted by Jimmy Kimmel—air on February 26, 2017 on ABC. See the full list of Oscar nominations below.
