Oscar Nominations 2018 Highlights

Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water has finally lead the race as the nomination list released. Well, the list of the movies is actually predictable but what and how a movie will lead the race is actually surprising. The sci-fi fairy tale The Shape of Water has been nominated in 13 categories in Oscar 2018. It’s a brand new atmosphere that the Academy gives high respect in such genre of movie. The 90th Academy will kick in less than two months, the euphoria is spread to the world.

In the second place, Nolan’s Dunkirk has been nominated in 8 categories along with “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri”. The movie which has positive reviews are the strong candidate to compete in Best Picture Oscar 2018 race. Warner Bros seems to have a great chance to make a comeback with Dunkirk.

Another surprise is the Greta Gerwig who is nominated in Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Lady Bird along with Jordan Peele with the Get Out. Peel has brought the horror genre to gain such high respect in the Academy as it’s only one of few horror movies nominated for Oscar. In fact, Peel has shown incredible movie production, as Get Out has collected US$ 255 million in Box Office with only US$ 4.5 million spent for the production. Both Greta Gerwig and Jordan has cut out the hope like Wonder Woman, Wind River, Battle of Sexes, Detroit, and Downsizing to enter the race through voting. Well, it also informs us that none of 2017 Superhero movies enter the race of Best Picture. There are only Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2 in Best Visual Effects and Logan in Best Adaptation Screen Screenplay Wonder Woman is actually the snub on this Oscar 2018 along with James Franco etc. However, Logan where Hugh Jackman played Wolverine, even though get refusal due to the genre, has actually impressed the Academy voters due to a great storyline and place the movie in Best Screenplay which is the very first for the genre.

Well, the LGBTQ gay romance movie Call Me by Your Name is certainly not over-expected as the 2016 Moonlight. The movie which only gained US$ 9.5 million has been nominated in Best Picture category along with Darkest Hour, Dunkirk, Lady Bird, Get Out, The Post, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. Timothee Chalamet also nominated in Actor in A Leading Role. Gary Oldman who played Winston Churchill in the Darkest hour has been nominated in acting categories along with Saoirse Ronan, Frances McDormand, and Daniel Kaluuya.

Another surprise is the Mudbound cinematographer, Rachel Morrison who becomes the first female nominee in cinematographer category. Panthom Thread which was not considered in other Hollywood awards has been placed in six nominations. Lesley Manville is also surprisingly nominated in Best Supporting Actress category. nomination Denzel Washington whose film Roman J. Israel Esq was an underdog, he still manages getting his 8th Oscar nomination.

Wonder Woman which has a long campaign and spread a big hope for Superhero genre is actually snubbed by the voters. The movie lacked the awards both in directing and acting which automatically disqualify it from Best Picture nomination race. James Franco due to his leading role in The Disaster Artist has been snubbed for the accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior. Even though Franco has denied all the accusations, the allegations emerged on one day before voting was closed, has lead this great man lost his chance in Oscar 2018. Mudbound has actually shown great efforts and professional movie production, The Netflix, crews, Dee Rees and casts have done intensive campaign as the movie wasn’t theatrically released. However, the efforts have resulted in failing to get enter the race of Best Picture or Best Director, Mary J. Blige, fortunately, managed to be nominated in
