Oscar Nominations 2018: ‘The Shape of Water’ Dominates with 13 Nods in Total

The Oscar nominations are here! At long last, the list of nominees for the 90th annual Academy Awards have been unveiled. The Shape of Water leads the pack with 13 nominations overall, including Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, Actress, Supporting Actor, and Supporting Actor. Guillermo del Toro, fairy tale is pretty far ahead, as Dunkirk comes closest with 8 nominations, including a first-ever Best Director nod for Christopher Nolan. Yes indeed, the director’s branch of the Academy finally came around after snubbing Nolan for The Dark Knight and Inception, and he joins a delightfully diverse line-up that also includes Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird and Jordan Peele for Get Out. Also, of note: While a box office disappointment, Blade Runner 2049 managed five Oscar nominations this afternoon.

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri also fared incredibly well with 7 nominations in total, even if it missed Best Director for Martin McDonagh. The biggest surprise inclusion overall, however, was Phantom Thread. Most figured Paul Thomas Anderson‘s drama hadn’t been seen by enough voters, but Anderson snuck in the Best Director race, the film scored a Best Picture nod, and Lesley Manville got into the Best Supporting Actress race. Unfortunately, that meant Holly Hunter got left off that shortlist.

But also, Rachel Morrison became the first woman ever nominated in the Best Cinematography category for her stunning work on Mudbound. There’s some good stuff here!
