(AP) Kodak says some of Hollywood is still hanging on to film, pointing to 29 Academy Award nominations for movies captured on its 35 mm and 16 mm Motion Picture Film stock as proof of its success.

Kodak says "La La Land," ''Fences," ''Hidden Figures," ''Jackie," ''Nocturnal Animals," ''Loving," ''Silence," ''Suicide Squad," and "Hail Caesar!" are among movies whose producers have bucked the digital cinematography trend.

Kodak is the last big supplier of motion picture film. Competitor Fujifilm stopped its production in 2013.

What’s set to take place after the Presidential inauguration this week is nothing less than “a global movement.” That’s according to one of the leaders of the Women’s March on Washington. There are nearly 400 women’s marches planned throughout the US and on six continents on January 21st, all inspired by the women-led DC march. The idea is to bring together women and men of all ages, races and backgrounds to be proactive about women’s rights and social justice under a trump presidency. More than twenty of the “Sister Marches” as they’re being called are taking place in upstate New York.
