Academy Award Nominations

Published Date: 24/01/2018

 

And so the nominees for the 90th Academy Awards are in!

The ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theatre on March 4, and as always the nominations have started plenty of debate, but also some great stats and facts. Here are some of the headline pieces of trivia this year to make sure you’re at the top of your game come Oscar night:

Designed with the Oscar broadcast in mind, the Dolby Theatre has hosted the annual ceremony since 2001 and will continue to do so until 2021.

Rachel Morrison became the first woman ever nominated for an Academy Award for Cinematography, for her work on Mudbound.

Get Out is the first horror film to receive a Best Picture nomination since the Black Swan in 2010.

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water leads the field with 13 nominations. The fairy-tale is in illustrious company tying with iconic films such as Gone With the Wind, From Here to Eternity and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. But, they are all 1 shy of the all-time record of 14 nominations held by All About Eve and Titanic.

Lady Bird writer director Greta Gerwig became only the 5th female ever nominated for Best Director. She follows in the footsteps of Lina Wertmüller - Seven Beauties, Jane Campion – The Piano, Sofia Coppola – Lost in Translation and Kathryn Bigelow – The Hurt Locker.

John Williams received a Best Soundtrack nomination for Star Wars: The Last Jedi marking his 51st nomination!

Roger Deakins received his 14th nomination for cinematography. Despite stunning work on film such as The Shawshank Redemption, Skyfall and Sicario, he is yet to win. Will his nomination for Blade Runner 2049 break his duck?

Dee Rees, director of Mudbound, became the first African American nominated for the Adapted Screenplay Oscar.

Meryl Streep broke her own record as the most nominated performer with her Best Actress nomination for The Post. This is her 21st Academy Award nomination!

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a favourite to win the Best Picture Oscar. However only 4 films have won the big award of the night without the director of the picture gaining a nomination – Wings, Grand Hotel, Driving Miss Daisy and Argo.

You may be surprised to know that Dunkirk marks Christopher Nolan’s first Oscar nomination for director.

Christopher Plummer, with his Best Supporting Actor nod for All the Money in the World, is now the oldest acting nominee in Oscar history.

Mudbound star Mary J. Blige is the first nominee to gain nods for both Acting and Original Song.

Logan is the first superhero/comic book film nominated for Adapted Screenplay.

As always we are sure that the ceremony will throw up its fair share of curve balls but one thing we are certain about is that every presenter will be extra vigilant after the astonishing Best Picture mix up at last year’s ceremony when La La Land was incorrectly announced as the winner ahead of the rightful recipient of the top award, Moonlight.

The nominees are:
