The 2016 Critics' Choice Award nominations are in, and it's a very good morning for Arrival, La La Land and Moonlight.

La La Land, a musical set in Hollywood starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, received 12 nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, who vote annually on the Critics' Choice Awards. Arrival, a sci-fi epic starring Amy Adams, landed 10 nominations, as did Moonlight, an indie drama about a young black man grappling with his sexuality.

The Critics' Choice Awards are often considered a precursor to the Oscars, and if this lineup is any indication, it looks like the Academy won't have a third year of "Oscars So White". This is one of the most diverse acting lineups in ages, with seven non-white acting nominees. Four of the 10 Best Picture nominees also have at least one person-of-color lead.

Here is the full list of this year's Critics' Choice Award nominees:
