"Spotlight," the film about journalists at the Boston Globe who uncovered rampant sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, has been nominated for an Oscar.

The Archdiocese of Seattle has released a list of 77 religious officials accused of sexually assaulting children in Western Washington.

From Jennifer Sullivan at the Seattle Times:

Archdiocese spokesman Greg Magnoni said the list has been in the works for the past two years.

“In early 2014 we brought in a private consultant, a former FBI agent who does this kind of work, she came in with an associate and was given full access to our files. It took about 1,000 staff hours to put it together,” Magnoni said.

The archdiocese is now—finally—taking tips from anyone who has information about sexual abuse in the clergy. The tip line is 1-800-446-7762.

Here's the list:
