And the nominees are...89th Academy Awards

 
It's been an interesting race so far but I have the feeling this will change as La La Land locks its status as front runner in the next batch of ceremonies with Emma Stone, Casey Affleck, Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali taking most acting prizes. But for now we have many possibilities with the nominations...and I'm personally interested in how many nominations La La Land gets, how the Academy react to Nocturnal Animals and Best Actress.

Picture
Arrival
Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
Hidden Figures
La La Land
Lion
Manchester by the Sea
Moonlight 
Upset: Fences, Loving
Would love: Jackie, Nocturnal Animals

Director 
Damien Chazelle for La La Land 
Garth Davis for Lion
Barry Jenkins for Moonlight
Kenneth Lonergan for Manchester by the Sea
Denis Villeneuve for Arrival
Upset: Jeff Nichols for Loving (could be a surprise nominee in major categories, right?), Paul Verhoeven for Elle (I think this could be the big surprise!)
Would love: Tom Ford for Nocturnal Animals and/or Pablo Larraín for Jackie and/or Ken Loach for I, Daniel Blake
Refusing to acknowledge: Mel Gibson for Hacksaw Ridge

Actress
Amy Adams for Arrival
Isabelle Huppert for Elle
Ruth Negga for Loving
Natalia Portman for Jackie
Emma Stone for La La Land
Upset: I can't see Meryl Streep for Florence Foster Jenkins not being nominated but I can't make sense if the above with her, would Huppert or Negga go? And could Viola Davis change categories for Fences? There's also: Annette Bening in 20th Century Women, Emily Blunt in Girl on the Train and Taraji P Henson in Hidden Figures
