The 89th Academy Awards will be aired on ABC on February 26. 

Looking at the nominated actors and actresses, it's a mix bag of winners, previous nominees and first-timers. 

The Academy Awards is the Granddaddy of all awards. 

There are also no clear frontrunners compared to previous years. Most of the films featured weren't even blockbuster hits. 

Some say that Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are strong contenders but the Academy voters are known to digress from the popular choices.
