Nominees For The 90th Annual Academy Awards

Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is on a roll.

A theory: Maybe last year's all-time great Oscar moment-when a series of hilariously improbable screw-ups resulted in the Best Picture trophy suddenly transferring from La La Land, the movie everyone thought would win, to Moonlight, the movie that deserved to win-was the moment everything changed. Cool. A Best Picture slot for The Post despite zero recognition in the technical categories, or anywhere other than Meryl Streep's expected nomination?

Steven Spielberg is one of the best directors who has ever done the job, and his most recent endeavor, The Post, served as a reminder to anybody who may have forgotten that fact.

James Franco, who won the Golden Globes for Best Actor missed out on being nominated for the Oscar's.

The film hit Mexican cinemas two weekends ago, rising to the top of the domestic box office and earning 61.2 million pesos (just under USA $3.5 million) on its opening weekend.

The 90th Academy Awards - the climax of Hollywood's awards season, to be hosted by late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel - will be held on March 4.

■"Phantom Thread" had an unexpectedly strong showing, scoring nominations in the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Score categories.

SNUB: Holly Hunter for "The Big Sick": Kumail Nanjiani's true-story dramedy earned a screenplay nomination, but Hunter, who was considered an early contender for Best Supporting Actress last summer for her performance as Kumail's tough but loving future mother-in-law, ended up sliding out of the final list.

A nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay might not be the same as Best Film, but Logan has certainly made new strides for comic book movies everywhere. That was in keeping with a tradition of generally cool treatment of action and sci-fi movies at the Academy Awards.

One of the "firsts" she was alluding to was Rachel Morrison, who became the first woman ever to be nominated for Best Cinematography, for the beautifully shot "Mudbound". "There's something in there for everybody", said Laurie Metcalf, nominated for her supporting role in "Lady Bird".

The Canadian producers behind the Oscar-nominated animated feature "The Breadwinner" say they didn't want to get swept into the awards buzz. "I wanted to make a provocative film that will not only wildly entertain people but also make them reflect - thank you for helping me to share this film with more audiences throughout the world".

And don't forget Lady Bird, with its nuanced mother-daughter relationship and self-confident central character. I wanted to make a film about the world we are living in today- about feeling disconnected in our modern world and how we have lost our faith in community. Netflix also scored with Icarus (Documentary Feature) and Heroin (e) (Documentary Short), two prestigious nominations that should bolster the company's longstanding embrace of quality nonfiction. Best actor nominees are Gary Oldman for "Darkest Hour", Timothée Chalamet for "Call Me By Your Name", Daniel Day-Lewis for "Phantom Thread", Daniel Kaluuya for "Get Out " and Denzel Washington for "Roman J. Israel, Esq". He can now tack on another descriptor: Oscar nominee for best picture.

"It's really handsome", The Shape of Water filmmaker says.
