For many Oscar nominees, the joy of having their name called quickly comes with a dose of reality — it's a workday on their next project.

Michael Shannon learned of his best supporting actor nomination while in northern England for rehearsals for his next film. Andrew Garfield was further south, in London, where he is doing rehearsals for a stage production of "Angels in America."

Rehearsals and a stage performance are also keeping Lucas Hedges, who was nominated for "Manchester by the Sea," busy on Tuesday. "Manchester" director Kenneth Lonergan spent the early morning getting his daughter ready for school, but said he hadn't spoken to any of the film's nominees because, "everybody's working in different time zones."

Lin-Manuel Miranda was on a break from filming "Mary Poppins" when he learned about his nomination writing the original song "How Far I'll Go" for Disney's "Moana." It is Miranda's first Oscar nomination.

Director Denis Villeneuve and his "Arrival" post-production crew watched the nominations together before editing sessions on "Blade Runner 2049." ''Arrival" earned eight nominations, including for best picture and director, and led the group to indulge in what Villeneuve described as an ill-advised mix of strong coffee and champagne.

Villeneuve says, "Honestly, it's going to be a strange day."

Viggo Mortensen is celebrating his second Oscar nomination by preparing for a snow storm.

The actor learned about his best actor nomination for his role in "Captain Fantastic" while visiting upstate New York and said he planned to celebrate by throwing salt on his father's front steps and hanging out with him.

Family has been a major topic lately for Mortensen, thanks in part to "Captain Fantastic." The actor plays a father forced to guide his six children out of their secluded life in the woods after his wife dies.

Mortensen says the film shows people communicating honestly and listening to other viewpoints, which is a much-needed message given how divided the nation is at the moment.

The actor says that while he received "Captain Fantastic's" only Oscar nomination, it is an honor for everyone on the film.

Mortensen says, "It's an amazing group and I'm happy for all of us. It's really great that people are remembering the movie."

Director Denis Villeneuve is trying to find the right balance of coffee and champagne.

The director learned about his first Oscar nomination Tuesday for "Arrival" while surrounded by the film's post production crew, who are also putting the finishing touches on "Blade Runner 2049."

Villeneuve says, "We had the bad idea to mix strong coffee with Champagne. So it's both extremes. I'm trying to find the equilibrium right now."

The mix of euphoria, caffeine and alcohol might not make for the most productive editing day.

Villeneuve says, "I'm going to work today but I don't know what kind of day it will be. Because we are like already (in party mode) and it is 6 o'clock in the morning."

Andrew Garfield's agent is faster than Twitter, at least when it comes to Oscars news.

The actor, who received his first Oscar nomination on Tuesday, says he was in London watching his Twitter feed to see if he was nominated when his British agent called. Garfield says the call surprised him, "Why the hell is she calling me, does she not know that I'm waiting for the nominations to come out?"

Her screams were confirmation that Garfield had been nominated for his work on "Hacksaw Ridge." The actor plays pacifist medic in World War II who received the Medal of Honor for his heroics during the battle of Okinawa.

The actor also starred in Martin Scorsese's "Silence," which had Oscar ambitions but was almost entirely shut out on Tuesday. Garfield says he's equally proud of both films, saying that Scorsese's film will be talked about for decades and Mel Gibson's best director nomination represents a "new dawn" after years of being ostracized.

Michael Shannon says his manager is the one who did the screaming Tuesday after learning the actor was nominated for an Oscar.

Shannon was nominated for best supporting actor for his role in "Nocturnal Animals" and is currently in Newcastle, England, working on his next film. He says his manager's hoots and hollers on the other end of the telephone alerted him to the honor. Shannon says his reaction was, "Oh, cool."

The actor is doing rehearsals on Tuesday, and says he probably won't get a chance to reflect on his second Oscar nomination until late in the day.

But he says he is honored by the recognition considering that so many peers he respects voted to nominate him. He says, "It's hard not to be flattered by that, I guess."

Seven is the magic number of first-time Oscar acting nominees.

The film academy gave seven actors their first acting Oscar nominations for a variety of performances, from Andrew Garfield's portrayal of a pacifist World War II medic in "Hacksaw Ridge" to Ruth Negga's performance in "Loving" as a woman fighting racial prejudice in the Deep South.

Other first-time acting nominees include Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris for "Moonlight," Lucas Hedges for "Manchester by the Sea," Dev Patel for "Lion," and Isabelle Huppert for "Elle."

Several Oscar favorites, including previous winners Denzel Washington and Jeff Bridges, were also nominated.

And so too was Meryl Streep, who extended her edge as the most nominated performer in Oscars history with her 20th nomination for "Florence Foster Jenkins."

The candy-colored love letter to musicals "La La Land" has landed a record-tying 14 Academy Awards nominations, matching it with "Titanic" and "All About Eve" for most nominations ever.

"La La Land" has earned nods for best picture, its stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, its songs and its 32-year-old writer-director, Damien Chazelle.

The other nominees for best picture are: "Moonlight," ''Arrival," ''Manchester by the Sea," ''Hell or High Water," ''Lion," ''Fences," ''Hidden Figures" and "Hacksaw Ridge."

Following two years of "OscarsSoWhite" furor, the Academy of Motion Pictures fielded a notably more diverse field of nominees, led by Barry Jenkins' luminous coming-of-age portrait "Moonlight," Denzel Washington's "Fences" and Theodore Melfi's "Hidden Figures."

Final preparations are underway for the announcement of this year's Oscar nominees, which are expected to offer more diversity after two years of the "Oscars So White" backlash.

Jennifer Hudson and Brie Larson are among the previous Oscar winners who will announce this year's slate of nominees around 5:20 a.m. The films "La La Land," ''Moonlight" and "Manchester by the Sea" are among this season's front-runners, including for best picture.

Departing from a decades-old practice, the nominations won't be announced before a live audience of reporters, publicists and academy officials. Instead, the reveal will come during a closed program fed live to Oscars.org and "Good Morning America."

The 89th Annual Academy Awards will be presented in a Feb. 26 ceremony hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel and aired live on ABC.

4:45 a.m.

After two straight years of all-white acting nominees and an overhauling of the motion picture academy, the Oscars are poised to trend in a different direction Tuesday.

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" are set to lead a notably more diverse group of contenders when nominations to the 89th Academy Awards are announced Tuesday morning beginning at 8:18 a.m. EST.

One of the morning's 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."
