The nominations for the 2017 edition of the Oscars were announced across 24 categories on Tuesday morning, and Lions Gate (LGF.A) looks set to roar once again.

When the contenders were revealed starting at 8:18 a.m. EST via a live stream on Oscar.com and Oscars.org, as well as through local broadcasters, including Good Morning America, Lions Gate emerged as the company with the most best picture nominees (three, for Hacksaw RidgeHell or High Water and La La Land), director nominees (Mel Gibson for Hacksaw Ridge and Damien Chazelle for La La Land), and contenders across the four acting categories (four, including Emma Stone for best actress in La La Land and co-star Ryan Gosling and Hacksaw Ridge's Andrew Garfield for best actor).

Indeed, the studio quickly trumpeted the news of its 26 nominations, including a record-tying 14 for La La Land. (For trivia buffs, All About Eve and Titanic also tallied 14 nominations, with Titanic taking home 11 statuettes to share that record.) Lions Gate had 17 total Golden Globe nominations and La La Landwon seven Golden Globes, with Stone and Gosling winning in the acting categories and the film taking best musical or comedy.

Other winners Tuesday appear to be Viacom's (VIAB) - Get Viacom Inc. Class B Report Paramount Pictures, which had eight Golden Globe nominations, and the independent A24. Paramount's Arrival and Fences were nominated for best picture, and A24 has ties to three films -- The Lobster, 20th Century Women and Moonlight -- with best original or adapted screenplay nominations.

Amazon's (AMZN) - Get Amazon.com, Inc. ReportManchester by the Sea totaled three nominations in the acting category for best actor Casey Affleck, best supporting actor Lucas Hedges and best supporting actress Michelle Williams. Affleck won the Golden Globe for his starring role.

The online announcement was a notable departure from the tradition of announcing nominees in front of a live audience at the Academy. 

Former Oscar-winning and nominated Academy members, including Jennifer Hudson, Brie Larson, Jason Reitman and Ken Watanabe, revealed the contenders and also gave out snippets of encouragement and advice.

"The idea of you being an Oscar nominee is actually now part of your name until the day you die," said Reitman, nominated for best director on both Juno and Up in the Air

"Get sleep when you can. Sneak into the Oscars with a flask. And have a good time," actress Gabourey Sidibe advised. Sidibe was nominated for best actress for Precious.

The 89th Oscars will be awarded on Feb. 26 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The event will be broadcast on Disney's (DIS) - Get Walt Disney Company Report ABC and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel of the network's Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the first time. What follows is the full list of nominees.
