Academy Award-Nominated ARRIVAL to Be Re-Released in Theaters 1/27

Actress Viola Davis breaks record becoming the first black actress to be nominated for three Oscars

Viola Davis makes history as first black actress to be nominated for three Oscars

The error occurred AGAIN, when Hanks' name appeared as the sixth (?) nominee in the Best Actor in a Leading Role category (below).

Adams, who's been nominated for a whopping five Oscars in the past, was a surefire candidate to take home an Oscar nomination this year for her performance in the atmospheric sci-fi thriller Arrival.

A social media campaign spread calling for #JusticeForAmyAdams after she was snubbed in the nominations; Arrival director Denis Villeneuve said he was left "profoundly sad" that Adams missed out.

ABC has apologized for incorrect information that was inadvertently posted this morning on the Oscars website as nominations were announced.

The enchanting movie musical "La La Land" floated away with 14 Academy Award nominations on Tuesday, tying "All About Eve" and "Titanic" for the all-time record for most nominations by a single film. ABC quickly identified and corrected the errors. But even though we're mostly ready to accept the Academy's choices as well-informed and trend-setting decisions, some omissions just feel too unfair to not point an accusing finger at the jury. The best actress nominee - who earned her latest nod for playing a tone-deaf singer in "Florence Foster Jenkins" - conveyed her reaction to the news via a GIF of her jumping around in a 2013 Paul McCartney music video.

Judge denies bond for suspect on Orlando police shooting charges
Debra Clayton on Thursday, bringing the number of charges he faces in connection with the crimes to 10. Loyd was hiding out at an abandoned house in Orlando when he was captured Tuesday, police said.

A pure demonstration of Adams' acting skill, Arrival represents some of her best work to date.

Bening is no stranger to being nominated for an Oscar: she's received four nominations since 1991.

In Arrival, when a mysterious spacecraft touches down across the globe, and an elite team - lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) - are brought together to investigate. In Arrival, Adams is at her best, her big eyes more expressive than ever, her composure a calm and grounded force against the nervousness of the soldiers and the stress filling the air.

Also in contention for a nomination is Xavier Dolan, whose film "It's Only the End of the World" is one of nine movies still in the running for a best foreign-language Oscar nod.

The 89th Academy Awards will take place on February 26.
