The march towards the 2018 Oscars continue. Over the weekend we got our very first guild winners, with the PGA Awards and SAG Awards, giving us a little more insight into this year’s Oscar frontrunners. Yesterday we cast our nominations predictions, and this morning the Academy finally announced the nominees.

Beginning bright and early at 8:22 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Tiffany Haddish and Andy Serkis announced the nominees, and there were tons of highlights and surprises. Guillermo del Toro’s fish-man romance The Shape of Water came out on top with 13 nominations – is this our sneaky Best Picture winner? (I’m calling it now…) – followed by Dunkirk and Call Me By Your Name with eight apiece, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with seven.

One of the biggest surprises was Denzel Washington’s Roman J. Israel, Esq Best Actor nomination over James Franco, who was more predicted to get in. But it looks like the recent allegations of sexual misconduct against of The Disaster Artist actor (which came out just before Academy voting closed) may have pushed him out of the running. And the Academy’s love for Phantom Thread, giving it surprise nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actress for Lesley Manville (and so very well deserved, by the way), was a wonderful surprise.

The nominations were also fairly diverse, with a director’s category not dominated by all men, or all white men. Mudbound‘s Rachel Morrison became the first woman in Oscars history to be nominated for Best Cinematography, and black trans filmmaker Yance Ford had his documentary Strong Island earn a nomination. John Williams also just broke his own record, earning his 51st nomination, this year for his score for The Post.

See the full list of nominees below. The 90th Academy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel yet again, and air on ABC on March 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Keep checking back here for the next several weeks as ScreenCrush keeps you updates on all the awards season news and Oscar predictions.
