Here Are Your 2018 Oscar Nominees

Nominations for the 90th Academy Awards were unveiled on Tuesday morning, recognizing an outstanding year in film. Girls Trip breakout star Tiffany Haddish and master of mo-cap Andy Serkis revealed the nominees live at The Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles.

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water leads the pack with a whopping 13 nominations, including nods for best picture, Sally Hawkins in the lead actress category and Octavia Spencer in supporting, del Toro in the best director and original screenplay categories, and in a particularly pleasant surprise, Richard Jenkins sneaking into the supporting actor category.

Meanwhile, Paste’s movie of the year, Get Out, received four nominations, including the big nod for best picture, as well as honors for writer-director Jordan Peele’s directing and original screenplay, and star Daniel Kaluuya’s lead performance. Safe to say Peele was pleased about this well-deserved development:

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk received eight nominations, showing up time and time again in the awards’ technical categories, while also landing among the nominees for best picture and best director—shockingly, it’s Nolan’s first Oscar nomination for directing. Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was similarly omnipresent, with seven nods overall, including two in one category: Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell were each nominated for best supporting actor.

In a history-making nomination, Rachel Morrison today becomes the the first female director of photography ever to be nominated for a cinematography Oscar, this in recognition of her work on Netflix’s Mudbound. Mudbound also received nods for best supporting actress, adapted screenplay and best original song.

Also noteworthy is a best supporting actor nod for Christopher Plummer, who replaced Kevin Spacey in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World. Plummer’s turn as J. Paul Getty was shot on an incredibly tight turnaround after Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct and cut from the film, and the actor’s last-minute heroics clearly have not gone unappreciated.

The Boss Baby was nominated for an Oscar, too. We don’t have a joke for this.

You can watch the nomination announcements below and find the full list further down. Winners will be announced live on ABC on March 4, with second-time host Jimmy Kimmel.
