The 90th Annual Academy Awards ceremony is tonight and and the crop of nominees for Oscars 2018 is just a tad different, perhaps echoing the changing landscapes of Hollywood. There are not one, but TWO genre films nominated for Best Picture (Get Out and The Shape of Water), and diversity continues to improve this year.
Last year after Moonlight became only the second film from an African American director to win Best Picture, Get Out‘s Jordan Peele is nominated for Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture this year. Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) is likewise only the fifth female Best Director nominee and only Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, 2010) has won. Celebrating a year in film that will unfortunately be remembered for the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo movement, female nominees and strong performances are all over the show. It’ll be interesting to hear how host Jimmy Kimmel handles the Weinstein-sized elephant in the room.
But let’s face it, you’re here for predictions, so let’s get to it… if you’re filling out a ballot, I nailed ALL the major awards last year, so take that under consideration…
The 33rd Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards were held on a Saturday afternoon in Santa Monica, CA. Recognizing the best in independent filmmaking, films like Get Out, Lady Bird, and Call Me By Your Name were all honored with awards for feature, writing, directing, and acting.
Get Out won two awards for Best Feature and Best Director; Call Me By Your Name earned awards for Best Male Lead and Best Cinematography; I, Tonya won for Best Supporting Actress and Best Editing; while Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, won Best Female Lead and Best Supporting Male; and Lady Bird, which won Best Screenplay.
Other winners went to some first-timers. Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani won Best First Screenplay for The Big Sick, while Ingrid Goes West won for Best First Feature. Check out the full list of winners here below.
The 90th annual Academy Awards ceremony is just days away now, and among the many nominees hoping to take home an Oscar is Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and eight other films vying for the coveted title of Best Picture.
With Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri—which is directed by Martin McDonagh and stars Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Lucas Hedges, Å½eljko Ivanek, Caleb Landry Jones, Clarke Peters, Samara Weaving, John Hawkes, and Peter Dinklage—now available on both digital and physical home video platforms, Fox Searchlight is hoping to convince those who have yet to see the movie to do so before the big awards ceremony this Sunday night. To help with this, they’ve released the first eight minutes of the film to watch online.
You can check out the first eight minutes along with a promo for the home video release and a trailer below.
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. The Shape Of Water led the pack with 13 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. Dunkirk got eight, and while a lot of it was on the technical aspects of the film, it did help Christopher Nolan score his first nomination for Best Director. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri came behind with 7, including Best Actress and two for Best Supporting Actor. So you get the gist.
But there were some things that just got flat-out snubbed, along with a few surprises as well. Check out some of these here below…
