Oscar nominations full of snubs and surprises

(Roman J. Israel, Esq.'s Denzel Washington broke his own mark for most nominations by an AfricanAmerican actor with his eighth.) Is it a coincidence that several other Best Picture nominees - Dunkirk, Darkest Hour, and The Post - are about never surrendering even when things seem at their most bleak? The film, named one of The Herald's arts highlights of 2017, deserved more than its four nominations, including best actor for Londoner Daniel Kaluuya, but it is up for the premier prize, best picture, alongside Guillermo del Toro's magical romance The Shape of Water, the most nominated film this year. The movie is nominated for 13 Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress for Sally Hawkins.

Fox Searchlight's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", a movie about an angry woman seeking justice for her daughter's murder that has dominated Hollywood's awards season, had seven nods, with Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell competing in the acting race. It was nominated for best picture, while Kaluuya got a best actor nomination.

He was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award on Monday, but lost to Gary Oldman for Darkest Hour.

For example, "Lady Bird" and "Get Out", written and directed by Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele respectfully, have been nominated for Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay and Actress/Actor. The Phantom Thread 80/1 and Lady Bird 10/1 are yet to be released in the United Kingdom but The Shape of Water 6/5, which has received 13 nominations over all, is the movie with the momentum.

Original Score: "Dunkirk", Hans Zimmer; "Phantom Thread", Jonny Greenwood; "The Shape of Water" Alexandre Desplat;"Star Wars: The Last Jedi", John Williams; "Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri", Carter Burwell. The film, however, received sole nod in the Best Adapted Screenplay segment.

Regal Manor Stadium 16, in the Manor Shopping Center, will be participating in the Best Picture Film Festival, beginning February 23 and running through March 4.

Netflix has only had a nomination in the Best Documentary category till now but looks like the popular streaming service went all in this time with its World War II era epic Mudbound. Speaking of technical awards, Rachel Morrison scored a Best Cinematography nomination for Mudbound, making her the first female cinematographer to do so. It received five below-the-line nominations (we'll see if cinematographer Roger Deakins finally wins an Oscar thanks to his work on Blade Runner 2049). Since the first Academy Awards ceremony in 1929, Gerwig is only the fifth female nominated for directing.

Call Me By You Name is a critically acclaimed drama starring Armie Hammer (The Social Network) and Timothée Chalamet set in the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy.

At 89, meanwhile, Belgian director Agnes Varda - whose film Faces Places is up for best documentary feature - is believed to be the oldest Oscar nominee ever.

The 90th Academy Awards will take place March 4 at 7 p.m. CST on ABC hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. ABC will be airing the event with Jimmy Kimmel hosting.
