Barry Jenkin's luminous coming-of-age tale "Moonlight," the crowd-pleasing African-American mathematician drama "Hidden Figures" and Denzel Washington's fiery August Wilson adaption "Fences" lead a notably more diverse group of contenders when nominations to the 89th Academy Awards were announced.

One of the big questions is just how many nominations "La La Land" will land. Damien Chazelle's exuberant love letter to musicals is expected to lead all films and could rival the record 14 nods received by "All About Eve" and "Titanic."

Jennifer Hudson and Brie Larson are among the previous Oscar winners who announced this year's slate of nominees.

Departing from a decades-old practice, the nominations weren't announced in front of a live audience of reporters, publicists and academy officials. Instead, they were revealed during a closed program fed live to Oscars.org and "Good Morning America."
