Oscar nominations: Winners, losers, and 'Boss Babies'

Oscar nominations: Winners, losers, and 'Boss Babies'

The fantasy romance "The Shape of Water" led the way at Tuesday's Academy Award nominations with 13, including Best Picture, Best Director for Guillermo Del Toro, Best Actress for Sally Hawkins and Best Supporting Actor for Richard Jenkins. Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri rounds up the top three with seven nominations.

Rachel Morrison (pictured), who shot Netflix racial drama Mudbound, has made Oscar history by becoming the first woman ever to be nominated for the best cinematography award. Tom Hanks didn't make the cut for his turn in The Post, Jessica Chastain for Molly's Game, Jake Gyllenhaal for Stronger, Hong Chau for Downsizing, Tiffany Haddish for Girls Trip, Judi Dench for Victoria & Abdul, Jason Mitchell for Mudbound, Sebastian Stan for I, Tonya, and Emma Stone and Steve Carell for Battle of the Sexes.

The Academy Awards will be held on March 4, with Jimmy Kimmel hosting.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed. The category's other nominees were: Daniel Day-Lewis ("Phantom Thread"), Timothee Chalamet ("Call Me By Your Name") and Daniel Kaluuya ("Get Out"). Both "Get Out" and "Lady Bird" have a 99 percent Rotten Tomatoes critic score - the highest among best picture nominees.

Though he won't be playing Wolverine again after the release of his Logan swan song, Logan star Hugh Jackman takes time to congratulate director James Mangold for the film's Oscar nod. Though it shoved aside Best Picture nominees "Dunkirk" and "The Shape of Water" for its spot, the film failed to get a Makeup/Hairstyling mention like the first installment did.

Attempts were made to shift voter demographics, with the organisation inviting record numbers of film industry professionals from all over the world, and they were quickly met with success - last year, best picture went to Moonlight, one of the lowest-budget winners in the history of the ceremony, directed, written, and performed by an all-black cast.

Many of these Oscar hopefuls have been recognized throughout the awards season, including Gary Oldman, best known to Potter fans as Harry's beloved godfather, Sirius Black, who's nominated for Best Actor by the Academy for his acclaimed portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

The first clip starred Wonder Woman star Gal sipping a cup of tea in a moving set to introduce the nominations for Production Design.

The all-over-the-place-ness of earlier awards show indicators like the Screen Actors Guild and Producers Guild Awards aren't helping matters much this year when it comes to trying to predict things.

Octavia Spencer ("The Shape of Water") and Mary J. Blige ("Mudbound") are both up for Best Supporting Actress.

Best supporting actor pits Jenkins against Christopher Plummer, a last-minute stand-in for Kevin Spacey, who was dropped from "All the Money in the World" after being accused of numerous cases of sexual misconduct.

Sound Mixing: "Baby Driver", "Blade Runner 2049", "Dunkirk", "The Shape of Water", "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". Cool. A Best Picture slot for The Post despite zero recognition in the technical categories, or anywhere other than Meryl Streep's expected nomination?

The Shape of Water is now the probable favorite.
