WWII Epic ‘Dunkirk’ and Freaky Fantasy ‘The Shape of Water’ Lead the 2018 Oscar Noms
See if your favorite flick was snubbed.
The nominations for the 90th annual Academy Awards have just been announced.
The Shape of Water received 13 total nominations, more than any other film. It is up for Best Picture, Best Director for Guillermo del Toro, Best Actress for Sally Hawkins and nominations in every single technical category. This is a film about a mute woman who has sex with a fish, mind you.
Dunkirk also had an impressive showing. It received eight nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for Christopher Nolan. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was close behind with seven nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actress for Frances McDormand and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell.
We are also downright delighted that Maxim favorite Margot Robbie is finally a Best Actress nominee. She earned her Oscar nomination for I, Tonya many times over, having to don a ’90s Tonya Harding wig and learn figure skating. That’s dedication, people.
