The full list of this year's Oscar nominations has been revealed, and it's looking great for La La Land and Moonlight. The former received an astonishing 14 nominations, missing out in only two categories for which it was eligible. Moonlight was the runner up with eight, a number which would have been impressive in any normal year.

The success of Moonlight is additionally important because it leads the charge for black actors and stories about black people's lives in this year's awards, following the #OscarsSoWhite scandal that dominated much of lat year's media coverage. For the first time ever, this year's Oscars have one major category - Best Supporting Actress - dominated by black nominees, and although it's still the case that most of the films nominated are about white people, this could represent a significant step forward, helping to attract funding and audience attention to projects that have previously been ignored.

The awards ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on February 26.
