Get Out, Lady Bird, Shape of Water Lead 90th Academy Awards Nominations

The nominees for the 90th Academy Awards included women and minority filmmakers amid a growing movement against sexual harassment in the industry and reverberations of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy two years ago.

Leading the nomination count was The Shape of Water, directed by Guillermo del Toro (who was also nominated), with 13 nods. Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic Dunkirk came in second with eight nominations, followed by awards season favorite Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Get Out, produced and directed by Jordan Peele, and Lady Bird, directed by Greta Gerwig, scored nominations in the top categories, including Best Picture and Best Director. Peele and Gerwig are the fifth-ever black director and fifth-ever female director, respectively, to be nominated for Best Director.

Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya was nominated for Best Actor and Lady Bird‘s Saoirse Ronan received a nomination for Best Actress.

Another highlight includes Rachel Morrison, who became the first woman ever nominated for a cinematography Oscar for Mudbound.

James Franco, who portrays the eccentric Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist, did not get a nomination for Best Actor. Franco, who won the Golden Globe for his role earlier this month, was accused by five women of sexually inappropriate behavior, according to a Los Angeles Times report. (Franco’s lawyer has previously denied any wrongdoing by the actor. Franco himself told Stephen Colbert that the allegations against him are “not accurate.”)

  • The Academy Awards are the biggest and most acclaimed night in Hollywood and bookend the awards season for film.

    Front-runners for Best Actress and Best Actor include Frances McDormand, who won the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for her role in Three Billboards, and Gary Oldman, who earned the same collection for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

    The Oscars nominations and overall ceremony come amid a national reckoning concerning sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood and other industries around the country. At the Golden Globes, actors wore black and sported pins to support the Time’s Up initiative and #MeToo. It is unclear how the movement will manifest itself at the Oscars.

    What’s virtually certain, though, is that the Academy will ensure the correct winners are announced following the disastrous finale to last year’s awards, when La La Land was incorrectly announced as Best Picture instead of Moonlight.

    “If you think we screwed up the ending [last] year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show,” Kimmel said in a statement.
