The #OscarNominations are in! Who's FAVORED to WIN!? [details]

On Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 89th Annual Academy Awards.

The Oscars are the final and biggest award show of the season, culminating in a massive display of all the glitz and glamour we’ve come to associate with Hollywood.

After cleaning up at the Golden Globes in January with seven awards, “La La Land” is in the lead with 14 nominations ― tying the record previously set by “All About Eve” in 1950 and “Titanic” in 1997. Meanwhile, “Arrival” and “Moonlight” earned eight nominations each, followed by “Manchester by the Sea,” “Lion” and “Hacksaw Ridge,” each earning six nominations.

With just over a month to go until the winners are revealed, some nominees, like director Damien Chazelle for "La La Land," are front-runners to win their categories, according to experts from sites like FiveThirtyEight, the Awards Circuit and Gold Derby.

Walt Hickey, the site's pop culture guru, has Chazelle on top as best director, with "La La Land" also taking home best picture.

There's a tie currently between Natalie Portman ("Jackie") and Isabelle Huppert ("Elle") for best actress.

Casey Affleck of "Manchester by the Sea," who is widely regarded as the front-runner for the best actor Oscar, is Hickey's pick, as is Viola Davis as best supporting actress for her role in "Fences." The last of the big categories is best supporting actor, which Hickey thinks Mahershala Ali of "Moonlight" will win.

Some of the closest categories are best picture, with "La La Land" only 3 points above "Moonlight" in Hickey's scoring system. But this could change over the next 30 days. At the moment, Affleck has a comfortable lead over the rest of the group in the best actor category, as do Davis and Ali.

According to Clayton Davis of the Awards Circuit, "It's hard to bet against it, but 'Moonlight' has its eye on possibly pulling in two SAG wins at the upcoming ceremony, which could help significantly."

Chazelle tops the site's list for best director, with Barry Jenkins of "Moonlight" right behind him. Affleck is the odds-on favorite for best actor. Awards Circuit puts Denzel Washington in the No. 2 slot for that category but points out that Ryan Gosling could close the gap in coming weeks.

The Awards Circuit has Emma Stone as its front-runner for best actress, with Portman and Huppert right behind her. Ali is the site's pick for supporting actor, with Michael Shannon a close second. Davis sits at the top for supporting actress, with Michelle Williams from "Manchester by the Sea" in the No. 2 spot.

Once again, "La La Land" is the early favorite for best picture, with "Moonlight" right on its heels, per Gold Derby. Chazelle is in the lead for best director, and Stone again is favored to take home the best actress Oscar.

Affleck and Davis are leading in their categories, and Ali is the No. 1 pick again for best supporting actor. Derby's No. 2 in the best supporting actor category is Jeff Bridges, who is no stranger to the Academy stage. Dev Patel is also in the running for his work in "Lion."

These rankings are sure to change over time, so check back to find out if your favorite actor or actress is favored to win.

So at LEAST there is a SPRINKLING of DIVERSE movies and actors this time around so #OscarsSoWhite is at least #OscarsNotSoWhite. Let's CONGRATULATE all of our NOMINEES this year!

The 89th Academy Awards will be broadcast on Feb. 26 and is hosted by ABC's Jimmy Kimmel.
