  1. [NOTE: La La Land was mistakenly announced as the Best Picture winner after the Best Actress envelope was handed to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.]
  2. [NOTE: The nomination as it was originally announced on January 24, 2017, included four names: Greg P. Russell, Gary Summers, Jeffrey J. Haboush and Mac Ruth. It was later determined that during the nominations phase Mr. Russell had violated Academy campaign regulations that prohibit telephone lobbying. Upon recommendation of the Sound Branch Executive Committee, the Academy’s Board of Governors voted on February 23 to rescind the Sound Mixing nomination for Mr. Russell.]
