Nominees For The 90th Annual Academy Awards

24 January 2018

Guillermo del Toro's fishy romance "The Shape of Water" scored the most nominations (13), including bids for best picture, director and actress, and it's continuing to look a lot like del Toro will be taking home that best director statue.

Eight other films were nominated for best picture: "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", "Lady Bird", "Get Out", "The Post", "Dunkirk", "Call Me By Your Name" and "Phantom Thread".

Martin McDonagh was snubbed as a director despite his film Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri earning seven nominations (including Best Picture); he did, however, land an Original Screenplay nomination for it. Steven Spielberg was overlooked despite The Post landing a Best Picture nomination.

Greta Gerwig became only the fifth woman ever to be nominated for a best director Oscar, for "Lady Bird". He becomes the fifth black filmmaker nominated for best director, and the third to helm a best-picture nominee, following Barry Jenkins a year ago for "Moonlight".

Britons Daniel Day-Lewis, Gary Oldman and Daniel Kaluuya were nominated in the leading actor category for their roles in "Phantom Thread", "Darkest Hour", and "Get Out" respectively.

The following are some reactions - through statements, telephone calls and social media - to the Oscar nominations announced on Tuesday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. "Thank you from a full heart".

It was also nominated for best original screenplay, with the rest of its nods coming in technical categories.

"Firstly, I want to congratulate my fellow nominees, both in the acting categories and across the board".

In a year where prescriptive action to increase safety and diversity is a daily conversation, this year's best picture victor should be one that symbolises the actions of the past few months - the solidarity of the black dresses at the Golden Globes, the creation of the Time's Up legal defence fund, the fight for diverse voices to be heard in film. It was the first studio superhero movie to be directed by a woman and feature a female hero on a solo adventure.

In response, Serkis addressed fan reaction to his most recent Star Wars film, saying, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi could use a bit of a hand, as well!"
