Nominations for the 89th Academy Awards were announced this morning and Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, led all Sundance-supported films with six nominees, including Best Picture and Best Director honors. Casey Affleck earned a Best Actor nomination for his masterful portrayal of Lee, a man whose life of solitude is somehow reignited by tragedy, while newcomer Lucas Hedges received a Best Supporting Actor for his role as Lee’s nephew, Patrick.
