Oscars 2018: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Now that the Academy Award nominations have been announced, it’s time to take a look at some of the biggest surprises and of course the biggest snubs for this year’s Oscars.

Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water

The winners of the 2018 Producers Guild of America Awards were announced recently. The winners often are an indicator of who will win the top awards.

However, La La Land proved to be one of the exceptions last year, as it won the PGA, but lost to Moonlight for Best Picture.

This year, The Shape of Water, Coco, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Black Mirror came out as the big winners. Check out the full list of winners below.

We’ve already seen nominations from SAG, WGA, and PGA, and now the Directors Guild of America have released their own nominees for film and TV.

Among those honored are Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water, Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird, Jordan Peele for Get Out, and Aaron Sorkin for Molly’s Game. There’s also Christopher Nolan for Dunkirk and Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Check out the full list below.
