The 2018 Oscar Nominations are Here!

Tuesday morning, Academy President John Bailey was joined by actors Andy Serkis and Tiffany Haddish in Beverly Hills, CA to announce the nominations for each of the 24 categories in this year’s Academy Awards.

Guillermo Del Toro’s sci-fi love story, “the Shape of Water,” leads the pack with a whopping thirteen nominations, while Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” follows behind with nine and Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic, “Dunkirk,” trails along with seven. All their movies are competing in the “Best Picture” category, but only two were honored with “Best Director” nominations.

For now, it is unknown if there will be another interesting upset like last year’s “Best Picture” mistake that resulted in the critically-acclaimed “Moonlight” taking home the gold from what was (at first) believed to belong the musical “La La Land.” But the Oscars hardly disappoint, and this year’s ceremony being the 90th on record is sure to bring an entertaining ode to the movie industry and it’s fans. 

Tune into ABC on Sunday, March 4, for the live festivities hosted for the second time by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.
